Cascade Venezia is the perfect yarn for a jacket or hooded cardigan and with a bulky gauge, your imagination will quickly become reality. This merino/silk blend is wonderful to work with. The silk adds great sheen and drape, while the merino provides softness.
I have already made 4 childrens sweaters out of this yarn. It knit up beautiful! Each sweater uses two contrasting colors. I have washed them several times in my washing machine (on hand wash cycle) then dried flat. No bleeding occured. A++++++++++ on this yarn.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love this yarn. Made a cardigan with cables in this yarn and the stitch definition was great. After blocking, it feels so soft. I have also used this for hats and its a nice heavy yarn without being overly warm.
I am making a complicated sweater out of this yarn (shade cocoa) and it is wonderful. Great yardage, doesn't split, great stitch definition and is so soft. Now that WEBs has it on sale I think I'll get some more in the bright yellow.
