Reywa means hope in Tibetan, and by purchasing from Reywa Fibers, hope is what you’re providing — profits from Reywa go towards tuition assistance and coverage of living expenses for impoverished children in Tibet. If that weren’t enough, Reywa takes part in grassland restoration projects, helping to improve the grazing lands of the yaks. Embrace features an unbelievable, cashmere-like softness. This yarn has quickly become a favorite among ImagiKnit staff, and we’re confident you will love it as much as we do.

Like its sport weight little sister Pashmina, Pashmina Worsted is a scrumptious blend of 75% merino wool, 15% silk, and 10% cashmere. Did we mention that it’s machine washable? Consider a merino-silk-cashmere baby blanket, or a merino-silk-cashmere cardigan, or maybe a merino-silk-cashmere plushie for that extra special child (or child at heart). The possibilities, as they say, are endless.
Due to the silk content, projects made from Pashmina Worsted have a sheen to them. A cowl in Pashmina Worsted is squishy, lustrous, and oh, so soft. Consider a double-wrap cowl to keep this loveliness as close to your neck as possible. You will not regret it.
Pashmina Worsted — in both its fiber content and gorgeous colorways — makes it an ideal choice for handmade keepsakes. Paired with its easy-care wash instructions, gifts in Pashmina Worsted (for yourself or for others) couple practicality with preciousness.
