Meaning 'lucky or happy', Taalay reflects the way our designer, Paula Pereira, feels when working with June Cashmere yarn, a feeling she wanted to experience year-round. Hence she created this wonderful vest in our DK weight yarn, meant for warmth on cool summer nights and cold winter layering.
Taalay also is a common boy's name in Kyrgyzstan, which is fitting as boys in the shepherd families are responsible for herding the goats, feeding them, helping with spring combing, and often delivering the family's fiber to be sold at our village collection points. We always say that the entire shepherd family is involved in providing the fiber that becomes our beautiful yarn. How fitting that we honor and value the boys with the name of this vest and remember that we are lucky to be recipients of their hard work!
Five to seven skeins of June Cashmere's 100% Kyrgyz cashmere DK weight
Packaged in our 12" x 12" June Cashmere logo bag made of 100% organic cotton
The vest is very elastic with positive ease. Even though less ease is given in the larger sizes, the open front allows the garment to fit. If your size falls between sizes, go with the smaller size.
