          sometimes I combine this yarn with novelty or lace weight mohair/silk and put it thru the washer to felt. I have many colors and enjoy these as a basing to my stach.

            Comments about Filatura Di Crosa Superior Discontinued Colors:

            I make lace knitted scarves. This Filatura di Crosa cashmere yarn requires a second carrier yarn to give the knitted item body and shape. By itself, it is too limp. I did not use the color-matched merino wool yarn from the same company. Instead, I found a 100% mongolian cashmere yarn of the proper weight that worked very well.

            Comments about Filatura Di Crosa Superior Discontinued Colors:

            This is a gorgeous high end yarn I have wanted to try for some time. This is for use with paterns as a kidsilk/mohair kind of yarns. This one features cashmere. It is best used in lace or doubled with another yarn to add a beautiful dimension/halo/softness to a sweater. I used it for a scarf. Be fairly warned that its hard to see the stitches through the fuzz; it takes getting used to. Some people find it difficult and frustrating to work with when they drop stitches. Tinking with this yarn is a challenge. Choose simple patternwork to feature the yarn so its easy. I found the final product well worth it. It makes gorgeous luxury items.
