Cashmere Sport Special Reserve

$19.99 25g / Ball

100% cashmere is the final word in supreme luxury! This fabulous fiber is available only for a limited time. When this special reserve is depleted, it may never return. With 25 grams of gently twisted 2-ply, this yarn makes a substantial fabric while still giving the cashmere room to bloom. The sport weight makes it ideal for lighter garments intended to be worn next to the skin, or for super-indulgent winter accessories.

I agree wholeheartedly with Jasmine! This yarn is beautiful and has an unearthly softness that I can't get enough of. It has a bit of a halo but it doesn't detract or obscure the stitch definition at all. The price makes it a fabulous deal. I hope this yarn is around for rhe foreseeable future. Even though encouraging others to buy this yarn will raise the risk that they'll run out sooner, I have to be honest and say that you will absolutely love Knit Picks Cashmere Sport!

This yarn is beautiful and so soft! I have been wanting to make myself a cashmere sweater for years, but have been put off by the price. While Knit Pick's Cashmere is not cheap, it is still a great bargain. The yarn is simply delicious to work with; it glides off my needles effortlessly (I am using an Addi Turbo #5 for the body of my sweater) and if I do happen to drop a stitch, the yarn holds together well and is easily picked up. There is a bit of a "bloom" to this yarn, so I have elected to use a simple 6-stitch/8-row cable pattern and it is working out well. I have almost finished the back of the sweater and am excited to get the other pieces started! Yardage-wise, I was concerned that there is only 82 yds. per ball, however, those 82 yards are going a long way. I normally figure that I'll use 5, maybe 6 balls for the back of a sweater; I just tied on my 6th ball last night and will probably have well over half of that ball left once the back is done. This yarn is just wonderful: any chance we could get more colors?
