Cascade Yarns Venezia Sport

Cascade Venezia Sport is a soft, smooth blend of merino wool and mulberry silk that works up into a light, drapey fabric with the luster of silk. The sport/DK weight makes Venezia Sport perfect for layers: think elegant tanks, tops, and cardigans with great stitch detail and tons of sheen. And Venezia Sport comes in a huge selection of deep, burnished colors. Made in Peru, new dyelots made in China.

Luxurious staple

By Karen

from Central Florida

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Beautiful sheen
  • Blocks well
  • Stitch definition
  • Warm and cozy

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Garments
    • Shawls

    Comments about Cascade Yarns Venezia Sport:

    This yarn is soft and wonderful to work with. The silk gives it a beautiful sheen and warmth. The stitch definition is great. It blocks beautifully. I have used this yarn for three simply gorgeous shawls and two hats. These are go-to items; I love the look and feel of them. The colors are excellent, and I'll be buying (much) more if this yarn in many shades.

    Comments about Cascade Yarns Venezia Sport:

    I've made sweaters and scarves with both the sport and worsted weight Venezia and love it, love it, love it. It does tend to split so you have to be careful to knit through all strands but this is a minor issue against the softness, drape, and beauty of the completed garment.

    Pros

    • Weight Was Good

    Cons

    • Caused Direction To Chang
    • Yarn Twisted When Wound

    Best Uses

    • Sweater

    Comments about Cascade Yarns Venezia Sport:

    Found these yarn twisted as I knitted and caused the stocknette stiches to twist. Not sure it will be wearable after it is blocked as the direction has changed. Very disappointed as this was the yarn suggested for the project I was working on.
    I can't attach a photo, as I have not received the sweater back from being blocked

    One of my absolute favorites!

    By Whidbey Trish

    from Whidbey Island, WA

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Glides Through Hands
    • Great stitch definition
    • Soft

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Sweaters

      Comments about Cascade Yarns Venezia Sport:

      I originally bought this yarn for a particular sweater pattern I had in mind. Unfortunately, it didn't "work" for that pattern, because that pattern had short row shaping in stockinette, and even after hiding the wraps, I could still see the stitches. Too much stitch definition. But I loved the feel of the yarn so much that I had to find the perfect pattern for it, and I did! Cables and lace patterns. Absolutely fabulous.

      Best Uses

        Comments about Cascade Yarns Venezia Sport:

        Isn't this the worst thing about a yarn while knitting. It separates into little strands when you knit. You need excellent light and to closely inspect each stitch.

              I love the yarn, but not sure if my inexperience in winding the hank into a ball causes the yarn to twist.

              Am knitting a striped sweater; combining it with a thin ribbon yarn. Pattern is showing up well. Knits smoothly. Only complaint; thought it was an orange/red, but turned out to be blue/red. Still love it!
              Have ordered from this website various times. Always efficient.

                Lovely hand feel

                Comments about Cascade Yarns Venezia Sport:

                I thought I knew what I wanted to knit when I ordered this yarn but after feeling how nice it is, I've changed my mind. It was going to be a very basic scarf but now I'm thinking lace.

                Service and delivery comments:

                I am always very pleased with the service I get from Webs. There are no yarn shops in Waco, only Michael's, JoAnn's & Hobby Lobby, which carry mostly acrylic yarns. If I want nice wool and wool blend yarns, Webs is my go-to store. I just use the regular shipping yet I always get my yarn sooner than I expect.
