Atlantis is one of the finest yarns in the Pascuali range. It is a blend of 70 percent cashmere and 30 percent mulberry silk. Cashmere makes the yarn soft and warm, while the mulberry silk gives it a delicate sheen. This blend produces a fine yet strong yarn that is shiny, silky smooth and exceptionally soft.
To create yarn to such a high standard, only the downy undercoat of the Cashmere goat is used. The cashmere fibres used in our yarns are from goats reared in Inner Mongolia, while the mulberry silk comes from China. The delicate fibres are spun and dyed with the utmost care in Italy.
Atlantis yarn is so fine and delicate it can be used for needlework and crochet as well as knitting. It knits up beautifully and has superb stitch definition. Atlantis is perfect for textured patterns and plain stockinette stitch alike. It is ideal for fine, light and warm tops and accessories such as fine scarves and shawls. The blend of extremely fine cashmere and delicate silk make this luxurious yarn so lovely and soft, it can be worn by those with the most sensitive skin.
