Each kit comes in my beautiful Scottish Cashmere Australia presentation boxes. So that you can take your project with you everywhere in the kit I will include my linen drawstring bags made especially for me by Linen Works London. The knitting and crochet needles have been hand crafted especially for me in Tasmania in Tasmanian Oak by the lovely Mary-Jane from Art Viva Tasmania. The cashmere yarn is the most exquisite Italian cashmere.

Your knitting / crocheting presentation box includes:

  • Patterns to create a scarf in both knitted and crochet form.
  • Your choice of knitting needles or a crochet hook handcrafted in Tasmanian Oak monogrammed with Scottish Cashmere Australia ( I'm quite chuffed about this bit!) 
  • Linen Works London drawstring travel bag.
  • 4 balls of my exquisite Italian cashmere knitting yarn are included which is enough to make the scarves with pom poms or a fringe.

In the note section of the cart please specific whether your wish to have crotchet or knitting needles.

CARING FOR YOUR CASHMERE

After using your new cashmere garment for the first few times you may find small balls of fibre forming on the surface. These small balls or 'pills' are caused by some of the loose fibre tangling together as areas of your garment are rubbed during wear. Pills can be easily removed by hand or by using a depilling knitwear comb.

You will find that, after lavishing a little care and attention on your cashmere and removing the pills in this way, the garment will actually consolidate and soften in handle and touch. Like fine wine, cashmere will improve with age if cared for properly. 

WASHING INSTRUCTIONS

We recommend that your  cashmere is gently washed after it has been used three or four times. Cashmere knitwear can be hand washed or dry cleaned. We recommend hand washing, following these simple guidelines:

  1. Your cashmere should be hand washed in lukewarm water (30℃) using a cashmere shampoo or a similar wool wash.
  2. Gently squeeze the suds through the fabric, taking care not to rub, wring or stretch the garment.
  3. Rinse thoroughly but carefully in clean lukewarm water. Saturated garments should not be lifted before excess water has been gently squeezed out as they may stretch. A short, light spin in a washing machine will remove most of the water.
  4. Smooth the garment back into its original shape and place flat on a towel - dry naturally away from direct heat such as radiators or sunlight. Do not tumble dry.
  5. When dry, press lightly with a cool iron.
