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!

This is just the most beautiful yarn and probably the most expensive I have ever bought but well worth it and I got it in the sale so what a bonus. As I'm relatively new to crochet I have been reluctant to buy very expensive yarn as I didn't think my work would warrant it but have decided that a beautiful yarn will make a beautiful garment. I haven't started a project yet with this yarn but have crocheted a swatch and it is just silky smooth to work with. I can't wait to get started on an infinity scarf with this yarn.

Delicate looking but strong yarn. Beautiful colors. I bought02, 03 and 04, I am making scarves with this yard. They will look very classy and perfect to wear when I want something very nice looking. It is expensive, but it is worth it for the cashmere. Yes, even the sale price it is expensive but worth it because I can make the scarves to my exact specification and not what someone else decided. I prefer to make things the ideal with and length for the wearer.

This yarn was on special when I ordered from Hobbii for the very first time I absolutely love crocheting but have little time for it so have vowed to treat myself to beautiful yarn for my favourite past time This yarn is divine, ever so soft and even prettier than in the picture I ordered 01 Pastel Rainbow and will definately be ordering more as I would love to try another colour way A baby blanket would be exquisite in this yarn

My house has a room in it that almost qualifies as a yarn store. So I know yarn a d while I haven't used it yet I am dying to try it. Three WIP on the go that must be finished first. So soft and over 800 yards. In heaven. Will make a lace shawl - I think - the right pattern will pop up. Color 08 will blend nicely for something with a bit of lace - might look at Dee O'Keefe Richland on Ravelry. Yes - very happy


Joyce Swensson

I purchased color 02. The colors I see online are very very close to the actual colors in the skein I received. I can not tell you how much I appreciate that. The yarn itself is very lovely. It's soft and squishy, not itchy (yea!). It crochets and frogs up easily. My only issue is the price. Just a bit steep for me even discounted to $30 / skein. I hope more colors are to come...
