This yarn is so magnificent that even I had to keep reminding myself that it is an 80/20 blend, simply because, with the quality of cashmere, which is at the level that I dye and spin, the bloom fooled even me.
While I used small needles for my samples, you could get away with a larger needle, so that the cashmere has “room to bloom”. My swatch on size 3 US gave me 7 stitches to the inch. .
