Luxury and speed all in one. Debbie Bliss Como is a luxurious blend of velvety wool and silky cashmere combine to make an incredible yarn. At three stitches to the inch, your projects will fly off the needles, but remain sophisticated thanks to the gorgeous color palette of Debbie Bliss Como. Made in Italy.
i love this yarn! it's deliciously squishy, soft, noodly (reminds me of the japanese udon), and mega easy to work with. i made a deep purple neckwarmer with this (in lieu of the pattern's suggested rowan big wool), which feels (and looks) great against my skin and keeps me warm. i would like to buy more in different colors to make more neckwarmers for friends. i hope to make a vest (also deep purple) out of this -- to substitute for the pricier schaefer kathleen yarn -- this year.
I neglected to check the yardage on this yarn so now I have to double my order so make sure you don't make my mistake. Also, contrary to what other reviewers said, this yarn does fleece up like a cat and I fear I will have to shave it when I'm done with my scarf. I suppose this is the same problem with most wool yarns, though. Based on yardage and price, Cashmerino may be the better purchase right now.
