Hand-dyed and handspun by a Cashmere People Yarns.  Cashgora is type of goat - a cross breed between angora goats (mohair) and cashmere producing goats. These animals are raised in Tajikistan and Afghanistan. The fiber is washed in Afghanistan and the yarn is handspun by co-operatives of women in Tajikistan. Each yarn features a photo of the woman who spun that particular skein. The yarn is hand-dyed in 24 colors and is also available in two natural colors - a white (Pamirs) and a brown (Scree).
