The cashgora fiber is harvested from goats produced by villagers in the Pamir Mountains of Eastern Tajikistan. Cashgora goats were developed by crossbreeding Russian fiber goats and local cashmere-type goats. Cashgora is a renewable resource – it protects the goat during winter but is no longer needed in the spring. Women comb their goats in April and sell the fiber.

Each skein of fingering weight cashgora yarn is 100 grams, however the yardage varies due to the handspun nature of the yarn - skeins vary from 360-469 yards. These are hand-dyed yarns and sometimes there is variance within dye lots (we love this about hand-dyed yarns!).

Produced in a socially responsible and environmentally sustainable way, spinners are fairly paid artisans who are fully in charge of their business. They share the belief that strong personal ties between producers, buyers and customers make a better product and promote an ethical, not-just-for-profit business that empowers women and links spinners and knitters from different places and cultures.
