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.

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...

J’ai hâte de tricoter cette laine qui est vraiment très douce. Les couleurs sont similaires à ce qui était présenté sur la photo. La traçabilité de la livraison et la rapidité m’ont surprises. Le suivi de la compagnie pour valider notre satisfaction, suoer!


Dottie MACOMBER

This is the most expensive yarn I have ever bought, but boy, is it soft and beautiful! I can't wait to make the Dolce Harlequin scarf- this will be a special treat for me! I ordered color #01, and the color on the website is just like the actual yarn- beautiful!
