Enjoy our video below--we exist to work with shepherds in Kyrgyzstan and create a yarn worthy of your time and energy.
Intertwined in each skein of yarn is a shepherd family living in Kyrgyzstan.
We exist to provide Kyrgyz shepherd families with a secondary income for their cashmere, paying them fair market value and above for their fiber. In turn, we work toward economic development in-country, having just established a cashmere de-hairing facility in the capital city Bishkek. We now collect, sort, scour and de-hair Kyrgyz highest quality cashmere in Kyrgyzstan and then send our fiber to the greater Manchester textile-producing region of England for spinning and dyeing. We sell our yarn out of our headquarters, Columbus, Ohio, working to keep our pricing as low as possible for cashmere for our valued maker community.
If you haven't heard of us before, we welcome you to watch the video before attending our event (including narration from our founder, Sy Belohlavek). It shares with you the people, goats, and land that allow us, the makers, the opportunity to work with such exquisite fiber. Join us to learn about this amazing yarn and all you can make from it. We can't wait to visit with you!
