      Comments about Rowan Classic Cashsoft DK:

      I knit a dress from the Vogue Knitting magazine Holiday 2012 issue ("Rain Drops"). The dress turned out lovely, with beautiful stitch definition, and the garment is soft. But..... the yarn was a huge headache. Every one of the 14 skeins I used had knots, areas where one fiber in the ply was severed, and/or sections of "fluff" that looked like something got caught in the spinning process and bunched up the fibers. Each time one of these flaws appeared, and there were many of them, it resulted in having to cut the yarn and re-join it mid-project.

      I won't purchase this particular yarn again.... it's not cheap, and I expected much better from the Rowan brand.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Delivery and customer service was wonderful. WEBS is my favorite online yarn retailer!

        I used the product for a baby blanket. Not sure I will be happy enough with the quality to give as a gift when finished.

          long time I knit from this yarn to their children - and they love things soft and light. even in Siberia in their sweaters this yarn is warm and cozy in the most extreme cold - down to (-40 degrees Celsius). of course if you wear with a warm coat. :)))

              Comments about Rowan Classic Cashsoft DK:

              This yarn is absolutely beautiful. It is so very soft, knits up well, and if you are a speedy knitter, doesn't snag or split. I absolutely don't like scratchy or rough yarn near my skin and this is sooo soft I have used it in a cowl. It was a gift from my kids for Mother's Day and even though I live in Australia and postage costs are always an issue, it was still reasonably priced.

              I love buying from Webs - in fact, I never buy my yarn anywhere else. Not even locally in Australia as Webs has sooo many wonderful yarns, great prices and terrific delivery times. Even in Australia it doesn't take that long for yarn to arrive. It is a dream that one day I will get to visit in person with a large, empty suitcase for filling up. Lol.

                Beautiful, soft yarn at a reasonable price. Makes great baby sweaters. I've used it as a substitute for more expensive yarns.

                Comments about Rowan Classic Cashsoft DK:

                Super-soft, and relatively pill-resistant if you knit it at a finer gauge than suggested on the ball-band. Glides over the needles, super velvety, and superb stitch definition. Even though it's superwash, I would suggest washing by hand to preserve your hard work. Overall fabulous yarn.

                This is my ultimate favorite yarn! It is very springy, super soft, and has an incredibly beautiful sheen to give the yarn great depth and great definition. Really great colors. I love it for baby items, just finished a shawl/scarf for me, and am just trying to thing of other things to make with it I love it so much!
