    I've used Dream in Color Smooshy and Classy before because the colours are gorgeous. And now there's a version with cashmere? Count me in.

    My beloved sister also made me a shawlette in this yarn. Not only do I love it, she loved knitting with it and everyone she knew kept picking up the work in progress to exclaim about the colour (Deep Sea Flower) and the SOFTNESS. It was quite a battle at times to get them to hand it back!

    Seriously soft, this is the sort of skein where you want to love it and cuddle it and call it George...sorry, where was I? The one downside for my purposes is that it's handwash, which is fair enough given its cashmere content, but does limit the people for whom I can knit socks with it. Socks for curling up on the sofa in sweats on a rainy Friday night after a long week, with a glass of wine and a BBC murder mystery? Definitely. Socks to wear under your hiking boots? Not so much.

    But so soft and pretty!

    The color "boot camp" arrived a great deal darker than the web site photo. More of a reddish mahogany brown. The return was easy, and I reordered a different yarn (Zen Yarn Garden's "Black Pearl") which matched the color exactly. Beware dye lots; they're not accurate online.

        I used this yarn to knit plain, elegant mittens with very long forearms. Delicious! I plan to knit more, as they will make wonderful holiday gifts.

        Service and delivery comments:

        The yarn was stuffed into a mailer bag with no other protection from the weather. Not very professional.

          I made a gorgeous pair of socks for a fundraiser auction. I used "flashy mint" and it came out looking like a fire opal -- glints of various colors in a relatively light hue

            I have knitted both a lacy scarf & a pair of gloves with this yarn. Great stitch definition, beautiful finished product, blocks well. The only problem I have is that I'm getting older (aren't we all) & I have difficulty seeing the stitches when I knit in the evening. I love the beautiful colors so I generally knit with this yarn in daylight - easier to see.

                This yarn is absolutely dreamy and the colorway is beautiful. I made socks and it feels like my feet are wrapped in a cloud. Beware though, this is more of a DK weight than fingering!

                  I was dissappointed that the color shown verses what I received did not matchI had two skeins and wanted a third, but the one I received did not work with what I had even if I had done alternate row adding yarn.

                      Comments about Dream in Color Smooshy with Cashmere:

                      I wanted to update my previous review. I decided to reskein the yarn and wash it before I continuted knitting with it. I expected the wash water to have lots of excess dye, based on the color of my hands when I was knitting. However, there was almost no dye in the wash water. I'm not an experienced dyer, so I don't know why there was color on my hands, but not in the water. The yarn is very soft and lovely to work with.
