It's apparently a DK 85% cotton 15% cashmere. I'm going to be crocheting a scarf for my mum. Am a complete wool philistine! I can't even find the Debbie Bliss stuff, though I suspect it is expensive. What else could I use that I could by online?
i like to replace like for like where possible with yarns - the designer has picked a yarn for particular properties. cotton has very little stretch, the cashmere won't add much, so i'd look for a predominantly cotton sub, with something added for softness. rowan do "cashcotton" that has various extras, i find ebay a good hunting place for discontinued yarns (which i think this may be?) cashcotton on ebay
