Be careful and be aware that if you are knitting something someone will wear with Cascade 128 it will grow huge after washing and even a spin in the dryer will not return it to it's pre-washed shape. Please read the reviews on Ravelry before using this yarn!
I have used this yarn for quite a number of grand daughter projects and it's a joy to work with each time. The yarn has great stitch definition so cables look great. It washes well in the machine,in a garment bag,on the delicate setting with cold water. It's never itchy and maintains its shape. What more can I say but superb!
For baby items that need to be soft, easy to knit and really washablealthough I still wash hand knits by hand I always come back to Baby Cashmerino. The yarn is evenly spun, never splitty... blankets are always drape well and those little sweaters finish up beautifully with great stitch definition.
After being frustrated with other wool/cotton blends I tried Rowan...and I'll be using this yarn from now on. My knitting is smooth, the yarn is never splitty and the wool gives it just enough elasticity. It washes beautifully and is softer than ever!
