I dyed this yarn with KoolAid and now its being knit into a gorgeous shawl by Dee O'Keefe. It knits beautifully and the stitche definition is fabulous. i love this yarn. its inspiring. I hope they dont discontinue this yarn forever in bare. Its a beautiful yarn to dye.

I have used Capretta before and loved it! The only reason I have it rated as very good instead of excellent is the shipping. I have had three problems in the last year with the shipper that KnitPicks is using. I think it is UPS innovations but they suck! On the bright side, KnitPicks customer service is excellent and sent me a new skein. Still waiting but fingers crossed that it arrives this time.

I just received this today and one word to sum it up is WOW!! First of all it is a huge skein. It is very fluffy and looks much bigger than the 460 yards that it is. I just kept feeling it and rubbing it against my cheek. I wanted to try one out before I ordered a whole 20 pack, but now that I've touched it, I want more. For only 10% cashmere it is so deliciously soft. The merino is of great quality. I will most definitely buy again. Knit picks has never let me down.
