Summer in Kashmir is a super soft sport weight yarn.  It's a blend of GOTS certified organic cotton (90%) and cashmere (10%).  The cotton comes from certified farms in Turkey, and the cashmere from free range goats in Mongolia.  The blend makes this a great year-round yarn, and it is smooth enough that it will work for babies.  And it comes in a modern color range that will inspire you.  The yarn is spun and dyed in Turkey.

BC Garn is a Danish family-owned business focused on creating deep color palettes with environmentally-friendly yarns.  GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certification requires that all stages of the production are ecologically, environmentally, and ethically sustainable from start to finish.  The growing conditions, dye processes, waste water treatment, and fair and ethical working conditions must meet GOTS standards. GOTS is the only internationally recognized organic certification.  

Summer in Kashmir has excellent stitch definition.  The knitted fabric has very good drape and is lightweight.
