June Cashmere’s 100% cashmere yarns begin their journey when the cashmere is hand collected by Kyrgyz shepherds living on small family farms along the ancient Silk Road amidst the soaring mountains of Central Asia. The cashmere is then purchased directly from the shepherds by June Cashmere. The personal touch ensure that top quality fiber is being gathered and ensures that the shepherds receive fair compensation for their elite fiber. Click here for a short introductory video.
Silk Road Textiles and June Cashmere share a similar mission. We are so excited to offer each of you this opportunity. The trunk show features DK & Lace Weight yarn, sample projects and patterns. Purchase this exquisite yarn for a very special gift or for your own personal “after the holidays” project. Don’t miss the chance to grab some of this exclusive yarn!
Join us November 17-27 for your chance to see, touch, and buy this gorgeous 100% cashmere yarn.
