          Comments about Cascade Yarns Casablanca:

          I love working with this yarn, I have made so many things, blankets, scarfs, wraps, pillows, house shoes. It is a perfect yarn for everything. What I have a hard time is getting different colors to ship to Hawaii where I am currently stationed. We have only Ben Franklin Crafts here and they sell very little yarn.

          Beautiful colorway, but rough texture

                Comments about Cascade Yarns Casablanca:

                I bought this in-store because the colorway (08, Forest) caught my eye- a blend of natural, oranges, greens, and browns. I love the color changes and am using it to crochet Kristin Olmdahl's "Infinity Wrap". However, this is a very rough-textured yarn- I'm not sure I want this wrap wrapping around me, let alone giving it as a gift (as I originally intended). Also, as other reviewers mentioned, this yarn is very fragile and often, when working with it, the strand gets thinner and thinner until it is very close to snapping. I probably won't buy this yarn again.

                Comments about Cascade Yarns Casablanca:

                Fun to work with as the colors rotate through but frustrating when the yarn gets so thin and breaks off while you are knitting. I have never experienced this in a yarn before and would not expect it since this yarn is fairly expensive.

                          I have not made a project from this yarn yet, as I've only knit a few swatches. But I would for sure use this lovely yarn for sweaters, hats scarves, cowls, nearly anything and everything. I'll write another review after I've made something and blocked it.

                                I knit the triangular scarf pattern. When doing the kitchener stitch the yarn broke several times.

                                The yarn is really wonderful with a great halo and good colors BUT the yarn kept breaking when working with the lightest color areas. I'd say that the yarn broke at least 5 times while I was working on the Casablanca hoodie pattern. It broke three times alone while I was completing the front bands, not an easy place to fix the joins. I would recommend it only with caveats about the fragility.

                                Lovely but way too fragile

                                i made a simple lace scarf with this and the finished product was pretty and the colors lovely, but knitting with it was a pain. The yarn is far too fragile -- especially if there is a chance you might have to frog even the least little bit to correct an error. I had to make 4 felt joins in one skein when the yarn unexpectedly broke on me because it got tugged on for several different reasons. And these tugs were nothing out of the ordinary and the same kind of tugs I would give any kind of yarn and expect it to hold up! I've never worked with a yarn this flimsy before and hope I don't have too again.
