Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino

This soft blend from Debbie Bliss is perfect for baby and children's items. Baby Cashmerino is machine-washable, so no need to fear knitting something for the new baby!  From sweaters to hats to blankets, the possibilities are endless, and color selection is fantastic.  Made in Italy.

My comments apply to Baby Cashmerino used in the past, not to the current purchase. Although this yarn is machine washable, I handwash any items in which wool is a fiber. All merino is subject to pilling, and I don't want to stress it more than necessary. The tight twist of the yarn minimizes pilling and makes for delightful knitting by also minimizing splitting. I have found no tendency for uneven thick and thin stretches of yarn - a problem that has been driving me crazy about so many yarns of late. Colors are rich and colorfast. The yarn is very soft, and completed items are equally soft and itch-free. The name of this yarn is misleading. It is not baby yarn, which has the thickness of fine sock or fingering yarn. The thickness is closer to sport weight yarn. Cashmere is not the main fiber; merino makes up 55% and acrylic fiber makes up 33% of the yarn; cashmere makes up only 12%. The plump-appearing skein is misleading, too. The core is two fingers of air. Those 125 meters per 50 grams knit up fast. This is one of the many yarns that I wish would be available in 100 gram skeins because joining a new skein comes so fast.

constantly snagged as I attempted to put the sweaater together. Poor stitch definition. Ended throwing the project literally in the garbage and ordered different yarn. Would not recommend this for anything. Very disappointed. Debbie Bliss has a good brand name-goes to show, that really doesn't count.

    I am a fast knitter and find occasional "hangnails" of a ply when I am knitting the next row. Easy to fix as I go along, but the ply could be a bit tighter.

      Comments about Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino:

      I have used Debbie Bliss Cashmerino for approximately 10 years. The items made then have been machine washed many times and the sweaters STILL look and feel brand new. I will never use any other yarn for baby and/or toddler projects. It is head and shoulders above any other yarn for babies.
