Spin the blend fine and knit gossamer lace; the result will be breath-taking. Blend it 50/50 with silk and see how finely you can spin, and what you can do with a traditional Orenburg lace pattern for a shawl that weighs nothing and is as soft as a caress; show off your skills, strut your stuff, stretch your wings, and let this magical Asian fiber take you places! If you decide to use it by itself keep in mind that as a blending cashmere the staple is shorter than other types of cashmere. It will spin easiest from a carded rolag using a high TPI carder and a long draw. Since it is such a short fiber, and there is a bit of a learning curve to spinning it successfully.
