    To correct an earlier review, the finest quality cashmere comes from Mongolia, Inner Mongolia and Tibet - in part due to the extremely cold temps. This cashmere is some of the best cashmere available for handknitters! I've made several small items (scarves, fingerless gloves) and they all came out wonderful.

    The hank I received was a big mess. It took 2 hours to wind into a ball because it kept breaking, tangling, knotting, and meshing together. It's shameful that any yarn is this difficult to get ready to knit, much less a yarn at this price point.

    Comments about Jade Sapphire Mongolian Cashmere 2-ply:

    I'm making a cowl as a gift for a 90th birthday and needed something super soft and feminine. The yarn fits that description but you have to be very gentle with it. If you have to rip a piece back be very careful or you will tear the yarn.
    The other thing that isn't so great was that the color I ordered was a lot darker than in the picture and not variegated at all. More of a dove grey than a light greyish blue.

      Love Jade Sapphire - the only frustration is that the actual product differs from color posted on website. This may be a common problem -not sure.
      The quality remains outstanding!

      Comments about Jade Sapphire Mongolian Cashmere 2-ply:

      I made a fair isle pullover. Took forever. The yarn is so fine that progress is slow. However, the garment is exquisitely light and feels like being covered in an airy wrap - but retains warmth because of the layered pockets created by stranding. Always over estimate the number of stitches needed. Seems almost absurdly large when contemplating the stitch count but the end result has never been too large. For example 384 in fingering wt. (my usual) would be way to small. More like 450. Plan on knitting a garment like a pullover - oh say, a year and have a few diversions on the side to keep you feeling like you are accomplishing something. Makes the slowness of creating more tolerable. In the end you've created a masterpiece.

        Comments about Jade Sapphire Mongolian Cashmere 2-ply:

        I ordered 2 skeins for weaving a scarf and found that the colors and textures are different enough that it doesn't even look like the same yarn. These 2 skeins are totally different -- color and texture. I will be returning and perhaps a trip to Webs for my own picks for a better match. This is a first disappointment from Webs and I have bought tons of yarn of all fibers.

          I haven't yet used the yarn but I'm extremely pleased by its hand and gorgeous colour. I ordered the dark grey but it seems almost dark/grey mixed with aubergine. Very beautiful. Can't say how it will knit up yet... I've heard it can split if handled strongly. I believe it will take care to work with.

                  The yarn is wonderful. It does take care to wind into a ball - using a ball winder is not recommended. I have found the same problem with other fine yarn. It knits up well. I am going to buy more.

                  To correct an earlier review, the finest quality cashmere comes from Mongolia, Inner Mongolia and Tibet - in part due to the extremely cold temps.

                  My first cashmere did not disappoint. I made an Estonian lace scarf and always get compliments. It is so warm and comforting I wore it daily. Washed and blocked beautifully. Made another for my daughter. That's all I can afford to make for now.
