MAESTRO  70% Merino, 30% CASHMERE,  Nm Count  1/15 000

CESARI 70 % Merino, 30% CASHMERE,  Nm Count  1/14 000

Both Cashmere Blends will look special whatever style you choose. 


Two beautiful blends of Merino and Cashmere which feel and wear better than many lower qualities of 100% Cashmere; warm, light, soft - all the superb  qualities you expect from a good yarn blend.  Whether you decide on a latest designer style or a classic elegant garment you will always enjoy knitting with them and even more so wearing. They are fine yarns and therefore mainly used double (we supply it already wound double [2 strands wound together] on one cone unless requested otherwise). It is ideally suited for lady’s and man’s jumpers and cardigans as well as skirts and dresses.


The average requirement for a jumper or cardigan is up to 350g already wound double.  A 400 gram cone is required for a ribbed carding as for Design   

The yarn is supplied already wound double unless otherwise requested.


The difference between these two yarns is the metric count, CESARI is just a fraction thicker than MAESTRO, but either yarn can be used for the same pattern and the quantities stated also apply to both.


To obtain the smooth and velvety finish, this fibre is renown for, the tension square and the garment requires for the first wash a fairly warm to hot hand wash, thereafter lukewarm hand wash is recommended, it can also be dry cleaned.


Machine Knitting: It is suitable for all Japanese machines as well as Passap and Pfaff. For a ribbed cast-on put the Slide Lever on the Ribber on II with Brother machines (reset it to I after the selvedge), use the P-Carriage with Knitmaster machines. Passap and Pfaff machines require none of this.  The Main Tension can vary from 5 to 10 depending on the texture you want to achieve.


Hand Knitting: Needle size 2.5 mm to 3 mm for welt and cuff ribbing, needle size 3.75 to 4.5 mm for stocking stitch.
