Hoping someone can recommend a suitable substitute for me. I've used Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK to knit many baby blankets over the years. I've picked a pattern for my next one and have just discovered it's been discontinued.

Any suggestions for a substitute? I liked this one as it knitted up well, was reasonably washable and was lovely and soft. I generally try to avoid anything 100% acrylic.

Any of the Merino DKs should work, Drops, Debbie Bliss Rialto, Sublime baby cashmere Merino/extra fine Merino, Patons Merino extra fine.

Wool warehouse seem to still have it in stock, john lewis do a nice own brand merino mix dk too.

Look at the yarns that Wooly Hugs use - they're probably the ones listed by Polter.

I find the Drops one ever so slightly "rougher" but it is great value.
