Select Color:

Dolce Cashmere is an amazingly soft and fabulous wool blend mixed with a pretty, lightweight cashmere. The yarn is specially produced for Hobbii at a small, family-run spinnery in Italy. Here they have innovatively and carefully spun good and beautiful yarns throughout generations.

The color play in Dolce Cashmere is something quite unique since the colors slowly transition throughout the 842 yards (770 m) of yarn per skein. The large, incredible skein of 7 oz (200 g) is specially meant for soft scarves and shawls in which cases the color transitions really appear. Here we recommend to knit with needle size 2.5-4 (EU: 3.5-4mm) for a soft and even bulkier result.

Cashmere can be worn directly on the skin and warms nicely since the cashmere fibers are good at isolating and containing the warmth even better than wool. Since the yarn can be machine washed at delicate settings, it’s excellent for extra luxurious baby- and children’s clothing or for a beautiful baby blanket. Of course you can also use Dolce Cashmere for e.g. hats, gloves or other kinds of clothing. When doing so, you can easily downsize your knitting by knitting a bit denser by using needle size 2.5-4 (3-3.5 mm). However, please remember always to knit a gauge swatch before starting your project. It’s usually time well spent.

Happy knitting!

So soft and luxurious feel. The colours change very slowly so my shawl I am making is looking gorgeous. Quite a fine yarn but easy to work with and doesn't split so crochets up quickly.


Tina Ash

Absolutely lovely yarn. Beautifully soft feel and very easy to work with - good stitch definition with no 'splitting' as I crochet.


Wendy Jennings

This yarn is just gorgeous, so soft, lovely to work, and the colour changes are subtle and fabulous.
