There may be small white spots in the yarn. These are not insect eggs or larvae, but small flakes of the goat's skin. You don't have to worry about them, they'll just drop from the yarn or fall out of the knitting by themselves, or after the first (hand)wash.

 

Fair and safe jobs for Afghan women. 

From the Mountain has a network of spinners in remote areas, managing a cottage industry that now supports over 100 women.  After over a decade of conflict, many women have been left as heads of household, but with very few safe and socially acceptable ways to earn income.  

From the Mountain CashmereThere are very few jobs that are considered socially acceptable for women.  Many of the women have spun yarn for their own home use and wool for the carpet industry.  But spinning high-quality cashmere fiber into yarn for hand-knitters pays far better.

This provides a fair wage and an alternative to growing poppies for opium and heroin. The spinners are able to stay home with their children and provide for them at the same time.

From the Mountain Cashmere is available in 4 natural shades, the yarn is untreated and it is handspun using a drop spindle.
