      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A premium yarn for special projects that is luxurious to knit and wear

      I started knitting with cashmerino aran when i was a beginner knitter, and was hooked! It is an extremely soft blend of 55% merino wool, 33% microfibre, and 12% cashmere. It is lovely to knit with - it glides through your fingers effortlessly and doesn't split very easily when using. It is strong and durable, and doesn't snap or have knots in the balls. It is also very soft and non-itchy to wear - the merino in Bliss' yarns is super-soft and non-scratchy.

      The colour range of cashmerino aran is very versatile - there are pastels, neutrals and darks aplenty. (I think there are over 30 shades). My favourite one so far is the teal. The yarn is great for kids' garments and blankets, but look equally good for adult clothing or home furnishings.

      The yarn gives excellent stitch definition - it is great for anything from simple carter / sticking stitch right up to complex cables. It is a neat knit - all my stitches were evenly sized and tidy. I found the gauge to be true to the ball band - a typical aran - so it could be used for any aran patterns.

      The only disadvantage for me is the price - it is too expensive for me to use for larger items, even if I buy it discounted.
