Cascade Yarns Sitka

Warmth without the bulk: merino and kid mohair combine into Cascade Sitka, a soft one ply yarn. In beautiful muted solids and standout natural tones, Sitka works up into a gorgeous fabric with serious drape and a little of mohair's fuzzy halo. The heavy worsted weight means substantial sweaters and outerwear that are warm enough for low temperatures and thin enough to layer. Made in South Africa.

          Comments about Cascade Yarns Sitka:

          I rarely write recommendations, but I was so impressed with this yard, I felt compelled to let everyone know now wonderful it is. I made a headband and a matching scarf, and I have received more complements on these items than on anything else I have ever made. Trust me - you'll love this yarn!

          Wish this yarn was not discontinued. Very soft. Good stitch definition. I had no problems with yarn breaking.

            Comments about Cascade Yarns Sitka:

            I used 36 hanks of the Sitka yarn to crochet a blanket for my fiancee, and I loved it. It left a few little fuzzies around the apartment, but those were nothing that a cold wash couldn't sort out. It built up quickly, and the finish was smooth, soft, and very warm. The yarn was very strong, which is a big plus for me because I tend to crochet very tight. She sleeps with it every day and night, and I would definitely buy this again.

            Pulls apart with little pressure

            By LabLady

            from Minnesota

            Pros

            • Lovely color
            • Soft Finnish

            Cons

            • BREAKS
            • Did I Mention It Breaks
            • Loosely Twined

            Best Uses

              Comments about Cascade Yarns Sitka:

              I used this to make tea/mug cozies for a housewarming gift. Had to be VERY careful how much pressure I put on while knitting as this yarn kept breaking on me. Resulted in looser knit than I usually like, but end result is OK. Frustrating to keep finding 'ends' in the middle of my pieces.
