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. 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!

NOTE: Please note that a printing error has occurred on the label: The yarn must be washed by hand and must NOT be machine-washed. We apologize for the inconvenience!

Absolutely love this yarn. Gorgeous slow colour fade, feels wonderful when you’re crocheting and no split. I started from the centre of the skein as I wanted the colour change that way, and I would recommend you don’t do this unless you’re better than I am at unravelling... but that was my mistake tbh. Love this so much though. I’d like everything to be made of it.

I am currently making the Dolce Classical Attitude Shawl with this yarn. It is so soft and beautiful to work with. Already I can see that the drape is going to be so delicate .I can't wait to work my way through the different shades if the ball


Elisabeth

Absolutely gorgeous yarn: I used the iridescent blue colourway and the colour change was beautifully subtle and gradual. Worked up really well, and a pleasure to crochet with it. Not cheap, but worth it.


Beth

Love this yarn - so soft to knit up, makes wonderful sock bed I can get two pairs from one ball! It was a bit of treat for me but definitely worth the money as the quality is luxurious!


Georgina Hand

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.
