Yarn Review: Pashmina Worsted
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.
