70% Cashmere

Before I attended my first fiber show and discovered roving and spinning, I searched second hand shops for beautiful sweaters and harvested the yarn for just a few dollars.  This is one my of favorite finds.  I love the blue color and the texture is very soft.  When I first felt the sweater I thought it was a very soft cotton and then read the label cashmere and silk oh-la-la.  Here are a few pics.  I haven't crocheted anything from the yarn because I want to get much better at crocheting before I use it.  The size small sweater yielded eight cakes of yarn from the winder enough for something lovely to wear.
