"free" Cashmere & Blends Yarn Sample Pack For Sale



WE HAVE TO CHARGE FOR THIS PACK TO STOP PEOPLE USING IT TO BUILD response... BUT IF YOU BUY YARNS WITH IT OR LATER YOU ARE WELCOME TO DEDUCT THE TOTAL COST FROM THE SHIPPING TOTAL, OR ASK US TO...!

THIS PACK LETS YOUKNIT TRIALSWATCHES OF ALL OUR YARN COUNTS, AND SEE FOR YOURSELF HOW THEY BLOOM TO BEAUTIFUL SOFTNESS AND VIVID COLORS AFTER YOU WASH THEM (see below for washing comments).

INCLUDED IN EACH PACK IS A RANDOMLY SELECTED MINI SKEIN (100 yards) OF A TYPICAL YARN , ALREADY WASHED TO SHOW HOW A FIRST WASH TRANSFORMS THESE YARNS...

WE CAN'T GET A BIG ENOUGH PICTURE ON (though the one above does zoom), SO FOR A BIGGER ONE CLICK here

The pack is a standard selection of yarn counts and colors (usuallyabout 12 yarns). Each yarn isa roughly10 yard twist, which means you can knit aswatch and wash it to see effect. The picture shows a typical standard set, though obviously individual yarns included may vary. We aim to cover a wide range of colours, and to include eachthickness we sell and also examples of cash/silk, silkand cash/merino yarns. So unless you have a really specific request, the standard pack should do! If you do have such a request though, let us know via paypal...

We only accept Paypal payments for this, for two reasons. One is that US$ checks cost us $10 to negotiate, so we don't actually bank any checks less than that! Two is then you can write any special yarns you would like to see(up to 6), in the note on the payment and that way wedon't haveto match separate emails to orders... we are easily confused!

Please remember these samples are NOT meant as a shade card. We have way too many items (on and, mainly, on our own web site, for more details see our profile here ). and they change too oftenfor usto do that. The intention is to allow prospective buyers to get an understanding of how the colors in real life match our photos on their monitor, and to see how our various counts, blendsand yarn constructions look and feel after knitting and washing, so that they can buy from our listings with more confidence. We will always do our best to send samples of particular yarns asked for with purchases of this item or with any order - many regular customers request a few specific samples with each order. But it actually takes as much work to hand-makea sample as it does to machine wind a cone, so please don't ask for "all the blues" or similar :-)

That also means there is usually no need to buy more than one sample pack! But if you want to give out samples at a knitting group or similar, we are happy to send extra sets, just let us know...

Washing comments. These yarns are industrial remainders from the world's top cashmere mills, spun from the best Mongolian fibre. The best cashmere fibre can take a lot more punishment than you think, certainly as much punishment as YOUR hair can (after all, you hopefully live in akinder environment than aMongolian goat does..). So wash it in shampoo, rinse it with conditioner and then give it a bit of a rub to dry it, with a towel or in a tumble dryer on low heat with a few towels or similar. That will take off the oil and give a surprisingincrease in fullness and softness.

Hope that all makes sense! If you need advice on anything to do with these yarns, we have a user group of over 1400 experienced customers who are always happy to share...
