4 Reasons Why You Should Start a New Project in Baby Cashmerino

This yarn is like an old friend. It has been around for a while now, but there’s nothing stopping it being as good as ever. Here are four reasons to get those needles clicking with some Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino:

#1: Range

The Baby Cashmerino 6 ply range has an array of tints and shades of all sorts of colours! Just take a look at this selection (which doesn’t even complete the set) of cool colours…

…and warm colours!

#2: Composition

If you haven’t spent time pouring over balls of this yarn yet (which is inevitable once you encounter it in real life), that’s ok – it won’t take you long to guess its composition. Cash-merino. Yes, there’s 55% extrafine merino wool, and yes, there’s 12% cashmere, and the remainder is acrylic microfibre which makes it longer lasting and harder wearing.

#3: Feel

So with that extrafine merino wool and cashmere, you would expect it to be fairly soft to touch, and in no way does it disappoint! It feels incredibly lovely. That’s why it is such a bonus that Debbie Bliss has released four whole pattern books for babies and young children that show off the Baby Cashmerino yarn superbly… and that’s reason number 4!

#4: Pattern Books

Here are two of the four. This is one of those times where judging a book by its cover is allowable because the contents are equally as great!

  1. It wears so nicely, too. I have garments made from Baby Cashmerino years ago that have barely pilled. Compare that with Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran — it’s pill city from day one!

  2. this wool is so wonderful, and definitely not just for babies …
    I have two scarves and a vest knitted with Baby Cashmerino which I really like
    beautiful colors and very durable
