As I mentioned in my previous post, my article on June Cashmere is published in the current issue of Selvedge magazine. Here is more about this story–a background on the state of cashmere in general, how June Cashmere came to be, and why I find this venture to be particularly worthy.
I discovered June Cashmere at a small fiber festival last year where Sy, his wife, and their new baby were showcasing the yarn. I was taken by how beautiful and soft the yarn is–it IS cashmere. Then I began to talk to Sy and realized that the story of making this yarn is as world class as the yarn itself.
