In January 2016 four women from Tajikistan arrived in the United States, a few blocks from Times Square no less. They came to learn about the American yarn market at the Vogue Knitting Show. Oigul, Tuluikhon, Jonnamo and Shahlo are hand spinners and produce beautifully even, soft and luxurious yarn made from the Cashgora goats that they raise and comb the down fleece from.

We are pleased to offer their Cashgora yarn to you now. 70% of the proceeds will go back to the project which pays the women a fair wage.
