Cashmere Yarn

Have any of you ever worked with cashmere yarn?  How did you like the results and what did you make? 


The big question, was it expensive?  I know when I think about cashmere, price is something I would keep in mind.  Where would a person find cashmere yarn?


I have never worked with cashmere yarn.   Am I missing a good yarn?  Please share your thoughts.
