Cashmere on Sale!

“A skein of our Afghan cashmere is not just a lovely thing to cuddle, or the yarn for the nicest cowl you’ll ever own. It is a thread of connection to a community of women in Afghanistan.”

On of our favorite companies, From the Mountain, is currently offering its gorgeous cashmere yarns for sale at 30% off! Sport, DK, worsted and chunky weights are all available, in beautiful, natural colors! Contact Lauren via email at knittingnest@yahoo.com for information on pricing, availability and to place an order.
