I love this yarn! I am using hemlock heather to make a dress for a friend who is having a baby next month. The yarn is very soft and easy to work with. Being machine washable is a must for a baby garment. Thank you!

I have been obsessed with Shine forever but I have found a new favorite. This is definitely not a scratchy wool but soft and light. I purchased Blush and found it a great light pink with a touch of peach. I do hope that more colors are added.

Not been able to order any of this due to lack of variety of warm colour bases. Come on Knitpicks, get your act together

I love knitting with this yarn. It is yummy and practically knits itself. I recently completed a cowl with this same blend of yarns from a LYS but I swear capretta is even softer AND it's washable. I also want to add my voice to ask for more colors (and suggestions which of these colors would work well with the new hand painted capretta colors).

Oh my! I made a scarf for a friend out of this yarn, and it is so lovely. The yarn is deliciously cozy and absolutely beautiful. I do wish there were more bolder and brighter colors.
