    Okay yarn

    This is just an okay yarn. It's soft enough, but nothing to get overly excited about. I have yet to see how it washes.

        Comments about Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino:

        I use Baby Cashmerino to make toys and baby clothing. It has great loft, is soft and easy to care for. The yarn structure leads to a slight bias in the stitches, so it might not be perfect for cables, but This is a great all purpose yarn.

            I have used this yarn many times to knit fairies, gnomes and dragons. Using smaller needles than recommended, it gives a firm but pliable fabric that stuffs and shapes nicely. It is my favorite for toy making!

            Comments about Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino:

            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.

            Comments about Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino:

            How do I wish this yarn were thinner... I have lovely patterns, very old patterns passed down from my French grandmother, round-knitting patterns of lovely baby sweaters and sweet layette. They are fun to knit but if using this product, the garment ends up being much too warm and too thick. Cotton does not work well. I only wish there was a 3-ply version of this wonderful yarn.

            I buy this yarn as soon as I hear there's a baby on the way! It is my favorite yarn for knitting sweaters for my 4 year old niece-she has several sweaters in this yarn. My sister washes them in the washer and they have held up very well! I'm currently knitting her a poncho with a cable in the front and the pattern is showing up beautifully!

              I used this yarn before for my granddaughter's first blanket. I call it the heritage blanket because you will want to keep it always. It was a pattern in Vogue Knitting. For my dear friend's first grandchild, I wanted something truly special.

                    Had my mother knit me a sweater. She oowed and ahhed over the softness and knit-ability of the yarn. She knits often and said this was a wonderful choice for color, weight and softness.
