Debbie Bliss's "Cashmerino Aran" yarn is pure luxury and deliciously soft with its blend of cashmere, wool and microfiber. "Cashmerino Aran" works great for any worsted-weight project but especially for cardigans, hats, scarves, pullovers and jackets because it's so cuddly soft. 55% merino, 33% microfiber & 12% cashmere.

this yarn is wonderful. see my blog http://knitnic.blogspot.com to see the skirt i'm making out of #105 chocolate. i'm sooooooo surpised that they discontinued the chocolate as it's a wonderful color and VERY basic. hmmm. doesn't make sense.

I had heard that this yarn has a tendency to pill, have you had any experience with that? I'm curious since I have enough for a sweater and would like some info before putting a lot of work into it!

I can comment on the pills. I love this yarn out of the skein, but having made several baby/toddler items I can tell you it does NOT wear well. My items look pilly, shabby and old after only a few wearings (even the baby items the baby only rolled around in.) It's nice for maybe a baby hat for a gift but I would never, ever make something I wanted to last out of it, like an adult sized aran. It's a shame, because this yarn does feel so yummy when first knit, and I must admit, the actual process of knitting is a dream.

I totally agree with the previous posts. I spent $160 and lord knows how many hours on a cabled jacket with this yarn only to have a shabby, saggy, pilling mess after ONE wash! I was SOOO annoyed!!
