Sale! Capra DK Yarn

$7.99 - $9.99 50g / Ball  Original Price: $9.99

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!

Love the yarn; hate the new colorway. It's super-soft and a dream to wear, but I really wish there were jewel-tone colors available.

I love Capra, and I, too, am left unimpressed with Capra's new colors. Why wouldn't you expand the line to include both old and new(er) colors? I'm playing with brioche and K1B these days; I need lights AND darks, rich colors with their complements, two shades of the same tone. Let's go, KnitPicks! Put it all on sale and start over!

I love love love Capra, but why the color changes to pastels? I am blonde with fair skin and pastels make me look washed out. We need more jewel tones not baby colors.

So sad! I should have ordered more; now I cannot finish my scarf . I hope Knit pick will continue with the colour Sagebrush Capra. I would hate unravelling it. It's so soft and beautiful.??

The Capra DK is one of my favorite yarns to knit with. It’s soft, creates beautiful knit stitches and holds up well even after handwashing. I knitted a scarf with the ivory yarn, and I am currently knitting a scarf in the clolor Hunter with a size 5 needle. I plan to use this yarn for more projects.
