We had the opportunity to knit with this stuff in Germany this year and we knew we had to have it. We couldn't believe it was 100% cotton!
This yarn feels like cashmere but doesn't contain any animal hair (perfect for allergies and vegans), and it's both warm and cool in the Summer!
• Suave is as soft as cashmere. • When you iron your knitted project, the surface becomes smooth, light and cool. • When you brush it, it recuperates its fluffy volume and warmths wonderfully. • Specially engineering by Pascuali
Suave is not a classic yarn; its fibres are not spun or twisted in the usual manner, but placed in a “cage” (made of cotton yarn) and steamed together. This results in its extreme lightness and soft touch. Also, the cotton fibres used are extremely fine (about 14 microns).
Suave yarn is ideal for loose-fit sweaters and jackets and beautiful shawls. The colour palette is gorgeous.
You can knit a casual sIze 38 sweater with only about 250g!

Pascuali are a young company from Cologne who's yarns are characterized by their rarity and deluxe class with outstanding high quality.
All Pascuali yarns are made exclusively from fair-traded natural fibres produced in an ecological and fair way, where exceptional quality is just as important as the careful keeping of the animals.
The company owner personally travels to far-flung locations to visit each farm and inspect the farm animal treatment and housing conditions. Yarns are never purchased through intermediaries. The wool quality is as much in focus as the conditions on the farms for our company.
Before we choose the wool of the best quality we check out 20 fair farms with the same wool.
This is just the softest yarn - it feels like cashmere rather than cotton. It is not tightly twisted so it tends to give off a bit of fluff but absolutely perfect for baby knits or... view more anything that won’t get a lot of wear. view less
