Hircus Filati and Cashmere yarn

Cashmere is among the most precious and rare textile fibers, and it has extraordinary properties. It comes exclusively from the Hyrcus goat, that lives on the Asian mountains, and it’s now localized in the northern China, in Mongolia, Iran and Afghanistan.

The Hyrcus goat, in order to survive in very difficult climate conditions such us very cold winters and very hot summers, has developed a sub-level of its external fleece, called “Duvet”.

Cashmere is considered one of the best natural fibers because of its characteristic softness, warmth and fineness. The yarn is obtained by coming the Tibetan Goats solely in winter to separate the long coarse hairs from the finer, soft ones. The resulting quantity of cashmere is quite small: 120 grams (6 goats are needed to make a jumper), that’s the reason why the price is so high.

Every item and color of pure Cashmere yarn is processed individually, using textile machinery specialized in knitting and weaving of yarns. Processing is very long and complicated, as it is done by spinning extremely specialized in processing of fine fibers.

For many years Hircus Filati has been offering clients the opportunity to purchase fine 100% Italian cashmere yarn online at heavily discounted prices because all products of goods in large stocks.

We use a very light process of hand washing for all our yarn. It is gentle enough to take off the residual industrial oil which remains on the yarn for spinning but light enough to preserve the cashmere fibers.

The cashmere yarn on cones you can find fulled or fulling.

First I want to point out that the so-called fulling of high quality yarn is ” water treatment ” (read here for more). Indeed to cashmere is not made a real fulling as wool yarns. The cashmere effects must not become matted as the fiber is so delicate that the yarn would ruin.

The treatment consists in the wash water in tanks, industrial, or even in a normal washing machine, the yarn in skeins with water alone or at most with little fabric softener. This simple step allows the fiber of cashmere to relax and unwind.

The cashmere yarn for knitting in cones you can work directly with knitting needles or crochet, but I highly recommend you make with the help dell’arcolaio skeins, or balls and leave to rest a few hours before the processing.

In fact, when the yarn is put into fortresses remains rather “tight” around the cone. Putting it in hanks or in balls, they are allowed to breathe and swell until it returns to its original state.

When you have finished working with the boss you should wash it before wearing it. Wash the cashmere is a long process but very simple. Cashmere is put to soak in a basin of cold water or warm water with a little fabric softener for delicate items. You leave it for at least 3-4 hours , after which it is removed from the tray by removing excess water without wringing his head (I recommend) and put it out to dry by resting on a plane.

Never hang a cashmere sweater to dry, the weight of the water it could deform more and not resume its original shape.

If you work the yarn into skeins can wash the coils directly before making the boss, the washing process is the same.

As I said, the process is long , but it is a very fine fiber and very expensive it might be worth. Do you think the balls to make it part anyway fortresses. The yarn is put into coils, then the treatment is washed using water, after it is put in balls. This means that undergoes at least three processes, sometimes four, and each of these processes has a cost quite high since it is cashmere. Working the yarn package savings the cost of all these processes.

I hope these tips you can be useful.

Washing Cashmere

WASHING CASHMERE

To make the most of his glory, the cashmere needs a simple washing process after execution.

This requires that the sample undergoes the same process that you will make the finished garment.

You can do this either by hand (for a soft but little hair on the surface) that MACHINE (you get the hand of cashmere as you buy it in … Boutique …)

HAND:

– In a bowl, every 5 liters of warm water add 20 ml of detergent for delicate fabrics (usually half scoop)
– Soak the sample or the finished garment for about 2 hours. Drain well and rinse without wringing in clean water.
– If the yarn has some impurities (eg, spinning oils) and then washed in clean cold water by adding 40 ml of VINEGAR. This step must be carried out only in the first wash, it is not necessary to repeat it in subsequent washes.

Much simpler
MACHINE:

The washing machine is made when the fiber is to bring out the hair on the surface. The washing is soft and indicated the presence of vinegar will be an excellent antical:
– Place the sample / garment in a bag protect delicate garments in a pillowcase or old
– Load the washing machine and select the cycle for delicate fabrics (cashmere, silk, etc. ..)
– Select the temperature to 30°
– Select 400 rpm spin (or as low as possible, not to squeeze the head)
– Loads containers with 1 part detergent for delicates, 2 scoops of SOFTENER, 2 scoops of VINEGAR (in the container for the final rinse or in that of the bleach

IMPORTANT: In both cases, do not wring out the sample/garment, STRETCH, the sample/garment will be made between one or more ‘TOWELS. Never hang the head, or the weight of excess water the warp.

You will see that it dries in a flash!

Lay then work on another dry towel and put it into shape according to the measures, if needed, helping with some needles. Leave in a horizontal position until completely DRY.

Washing Treatment on Cashmere yarn

The cashmere yarn on cones can be found fulled or fulling.

First I want to point out that the so-called fulling of high quality yarns is "water treatment". In fact to cashmere is not made a real fulling as for yarns of wool. The cashmere effects must not become matted as the fiber is so delicate that the yarn be ruined.

The treatment consists in the wash water in industrial tanks, or even in normal washing machine, the yarn in skeins with water alone or at most with little fabric softener. This simple step allows the fiber of cashmere to relax and unwind.

The yarn cashmere knitting (knitting) in packages you can work directly with needles or crochet, but I highly recommend to make skeins with the help dell'arcolaio, or the balls and let them rest for a few hours before the processing.

In fact, when the yarn is put into fortresses remains rather "tight" around the cone. Putting it in hanks or skeins, they are allowed to breathe and swell until it returns to its original state.

When you have finished working with the head you should wash it before wearing it. Wash Cashmere is a long process but very simple. Cashmere is soak in a bowl of cold water or warm water with a little fabric softener for delicate items. It is left for at least 3-4 hours, after which it is removed from the bath, removes excess water without wringing his head (I recommend) and put it to dry adagiandolo on a plane.

Never hang to dry a piece of cashmere, the weight of the water it may deform and not more resume its original shape.

If you work the yarn in hanks can wash the coils directly before making the head, the washing process is the same.

As I said the process is long, but it is a very fine fiber and expensive it may be worth. Do you think that in order to achieve the balls are still part of the packages. The yarn is put into hanks, is then washed using the treatment water, after it is put in balls. This means that undergoes at least 3 processes, sometimes 4, and each of these operations has a cost quite high since it is cashmere. Working the yarn package save the cost of all these processes.

I hope these tips you can be useful.
