Rowan Cotton Cashmere
6.5 skeins = 890.5 yards (814.3 meters), 325 grams

I used a pattern that originally called for Rowan’s Creative Linen, but the gauge was spot on with Cotton Cashmere so I cast on. I love how it turned out without stripes and with long sleeves. I made my sleeves using the top-down, set-in sleeve technique, which is my preferred way to make a sleeve with a flat and seamed pattern.

The yarn is lovely. I am very fond of NICE cotton yarn, and feel that Rowan has a knack for making the best cotton yarns. A little touch of cashmere adds a bit of luxury. Easy to knit, soft to wear.
