Casablanca is a lovely single ply yarn that is a blend of wool, silk and mohair. It is super soft and gently transitions from color to color creating a lovely striped fabric as you work. Read the full description...
I bought this yarn in Forest from a LYS to make a Turn a Square beanie for my stepfather for Chrismas. I paired it with a solid dark brown. I love the hat! I'm keeping it for myself and will knit a second for him.
I really like this yarn! It is a single, so comes apart because that's what singles do... Brown Sheep, Noro Kureyon, all of them tend to pull apart. Cascade's Casablanca actually feels sturdier to me than other yarns of this structure.
That said, I also really like the end result of the fabric, too. It makes nice dense wooly knitting, and the color chages are gradual & lovely. I am making clutches, and other items not intended for next to skin wearing. The knit fabric isn't likely to pill too much, and will be durable for normal wear. I plan to knit a lot more with it!
This is such a fun skein to work with! It was really hard to find, both in any local yarn store and on-line, so I was very happy to have Jimmy Beans Wool carry it! I love knitting with it to watch the colors change and the pattern develop. I'm actually going to buy more of it, for future projects...it's got such an earthy feel to it.
