Cascade Yarns Tangier

Cascade Tangier is a soft blend of silk, cotton & acrylic in vibrant multicolors. Tangier is a worsted weight yarn with a bit of a tweedy, slubby look and an ever-so-slight sheen that would make projects glow! This yarn is soft on the skin and would make fantastic sweaters, shawls and accessories. Made in China

Works for me!

By RonnieK

from Massachusetts

I had no problems with the Tangier. Soft and comfortable to work with, it worked up beautifully. Colors for the Denim colorway are muted.

Yarn varies from ball to ball

By CSW

from Albuquerque

Pros

  • Color

Cons

  • Balls Change Weight

Best Uses

    Weight was different in two balls of the same colorway and lot number. I had to rip one front of a vest. Weighing of the yarn confirmed a difference in the weight from thaat stated on the label, one ball was 30g lower than stated. Fortunately the yarn store furnished me with a replacement,. The silk fibers shed constanly in the knitting process,

    Cascade Tangier Strawberry Patch

    By Margaret

    from Pennsylvania

    I purchased this yarn to knit a spring shawl. This yarn is very poor quality. It began pilling as I was knitting, and then it fell apart -literally, in pieces as I was knitting.

    Feels Great; No Splitting

    By Coffeeiv

    from Tuscaloosa, AL

    Pros

    • Easy on hands
    • Slips Through Hands Easil

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Shawls

      I use Tangiers for summer shawls. I live in the Southern US, so we use cotton for all months except Jan-March. This yarn doesn't hurt my hands like most cottons. probably because it's mostly silk, not cotton! It lies flat immediately, has a lovely drape, and it never split on me through 3 shawls. I have also used Filatura de Crosa Tempo, but the colors I like are discontinued. There are two other yarns that are similar, but I can't think of them right now.

      Nice yarn overall

      By Shannan

      from Nashville, TN

      Pros

      • Beautiful colors
      • Soft

      Cons

      • Knots
      • Thin Spots

      Best Uses

      • Bags
      • Blankets
      • Scarves
      • Wraps

      I've been making a lot of headbands lately using a pattern that is entrelac with ties in the back. This is a great yarn for that purpose and I've bought one skein in multiple colorways. The colors are beautiful and it's soft next to the skin. However, I'm deducting a star because I've found several knots and thin places that I had to cut and splice. Also, different colorways have different gauges, which I thought was weird. The skein I got of Geometric was more of a DK weight compared to Strawberry Patch. It's a great yarn if you can deal with those issues. It's not stretchy so I wouldn't recommend it for something like a hat.
