Cashmere People yarn is the ultimate in feel-good luxury: a yarn handspun and hand-dyed by a women’s cooperative in Tajikistan from cashgora goat down. Cashgora isn’t a blend of cashmere and mohair fibers; instead, the breeds themselves have been crossed to produce a single fiber that has the softness and halo of cashmere and the strength and luster of mohair from angora goats. In a word, divine! In addition, the cooperative behind the yarn was developed as an ethical business supporting Tajik women, and putting them in control of their own lives. Because the cooperative believes in social responsibility and fair pay, the cost of the finished yarn is higher than that of a typical millspun yarn on a yarn store shelf. But oh is it worth it!
