Summer In Kashmir by BC Garn is a sport weight (or heavy 4-ply) organic cotton/cashmere blend. Although the cashmere content is only 10% it lends beautiful softness and to this yarn that makes it a real delight to work with. The cashmere lends the comfort of an animal fibre but does not make it fluffy or hairy so this yarn would be very suitable for special baby garments. 

This is the perfect summer yarn but will work all year round. It has great stitch definition, lovely drape and is an excellent option for people who are looking for a wool-free yarn that feels soft and comfortable to work with and wear.

I loved this yarn so much when I first saw it that I came up with my first published design for it: Campfire Shawl. Kits are available here for this simple garter stitch, bottom up triangular shawl that has a lace motif running up the spine - perfect for a first lace project or for more experienced knitters that want something easy but still with a bit of interest.
