Capra DK Yarn

$4.00 - $7.99 50g / Ball


Capra, our elegant Merino and cashmere wool yarn, is as pleasurable to knit with as it is to wear. Available in a DK weight, Capra is a perfect weight for garments intended to be worn next to the skin, or special cold weather accessories. If you think this yarn feels soft in the skein, wait until you hand wash your project! After the yarn blooms, you won’t be able to keep your hands off of Capra!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this yarn! I used it for a wrap/scarf and for Staci Perry's Rodeo Drive Poncho. It is wonderful to knit with and shows beautiful stitch definition but it blooms after being washed and blocked. I can't wait until the new colors come out!

This is my favorite yarn of all! I've worked with both the Capra (DK) and the Capretta (fingering) and just love the warm, super-softness. My only complaint - as another reviewer has mentioned - is that they've discontinued several colors, and it's now available in only a few. Makes it especially difficult if you're making an item with more than one color & need to find two colors that will work well together!

This yarn is fabulous. I made an infant cardigan sweater for my baby in the topaz color. It is super soft, super squishy, and feels very high quality. I'm sad they've discontinued several colors because I would buy more for more baby projects.

When I first ordered the Capra Cashmere yarn, I was uncertain how I would respond to the yarn since I am allergic to certain types of wool. Upon arrival, I instantly fell in love with the yarn at first touch. The merino wool and cashmere did not bother me at all and is extremely soft. Knitting with the yarn was even more pleasurable. After making a pair of fingerless gloves I have had numerous requests from family and friends to knit them a pair. I will definitely be using this yarn again.
