Serenade: This fingering weight yarn knits up elegantly in delicate designs with cables and lace and is perfect for intricate patterns. The luscious hand-painted yarn is made with kid mohair and has a silk core, making it a pleasure to work. It knits up beautifully in delicate designs with cables and lace, and is absolutely ideal for intricate patterns.
Sonata: This exquisite combination of mohair and silk has a luxurious drape and feel. The silk gives the yarn a lustrous shine. The mohair adds an alluring halo of whispery soft fiber. A worsted-weight yarn, it can be used for anything from scarves and shawls to sweaters and coats. Also creates beautiful cables and lace. Hand-painted in beautiful multi-colors.

OK, so the first and the last are 39.95 a skein and 19.95 for the middle. I heard that that is actually a pretty good price considering that the cashmere is 5 ply. I don't know, I'm sure it looks great once knitted. I'd like to see what patterns they attach to it though!
