Product Description

This luxurious, medium-weight handspun cashmere is made by Khurshedmo of the Shughnan spinning group from Shughnan, Afghanistan and Maliknoz, who lives in Northern Afghanistan. A few skeins along with your maker’s creativity will result in a scarf more unique than any sold in luxury stores.

The cashmere yarn spinners are Afghan women from Sheghnan village in the Badakhshan province of Northern Afghanistan–a beautiful, remote mountainous region bordering Tajikistan, with rushing rivers and snowcapped peaks but little arable land and few sources of livelihood. Spinning yarn for export provides the women with the first stable source of income they ever earned and helps them support their children and other family members.
