Once the cashmere fibre has been through dyeing, carding, spinning and winding and turned into yarn it is ready to go into stock or be sold. It is in these boxes pictured that the yarn is shipped up to our mill in the Scottish Borders. We buy our yarn in Kgs and order throughout the year depending on production. We do one main order in April for our bulk Autumn Winter production. Production usually takes about 2 months and we start shipping Autumn/Winter orders as early as June. A lot of our wholesale overseas customers like to receive product early so they can photograph and merchandise it in preparation for the Winter season.
