    Cashmere sound so soft and warm. I imagine it feeling great in the hand while knitting.

    I have to say cashmere is like butter. I have also tried yak which had a nice drape to it

    Would love to work with cashmere.

    I’ve done some silk but cashmere seems like it might be cloud like in whatever yarn weight you use.

    I have enjoyed knitting with cashmere but looking forward to more exotic fibers

    I’ve only worked with Cashmere in blends. Otherwise, pure alpaca is my go-to “luxury” yarn. So so soft! Oh I forgot I have a skein of sea silk (seacell, not the byssus kind), but I haven’t made anything from it yet.

    The most exotic fiber I’ve knitted with so far was yak. I’d love to try qiviut! I’m also curious about bison and camel.

    As for sheep wools, I’ve particularly enjoyed yarns that were blue-faced Leicester (BFL) or Polwarth blends. I also enjoyed my foray into history, ordering North Ronaldsay yarn from Englandl so I could see what wool was like in the days of the Vikings. (Answer: not soft, but very warm.) I’m curious to try ALL the sheep, LOL.

    I have worked with silk-wool blends and love them. I have always wanted to try a muskox yarn after touching some in Alaska.
