You can still get cashmerino Dk on eBay in most colours, reasonably priced too.

I'm really disappointed as well, it's my favourite wool to work with. I went and had a squeeze in the wool shop the other daywink and found the rowan pure wool had a similar soft feel and a lovely range of colours.

I have stocked up a bit though from eBay and AbitWoolly have some stock at 4.20 a ball too.

Off the top of my head, I'd look at Artesano superwash merino DK or Rowan pure wool, which would give the washability of the Cashmerino and still be pretty nice to work with. I also like Sublime Extra Fine Merino DK, but that is a handwash yarn.

However, stocks of the DB Cashmerino DK will take a while to use up, so you will be able to get it for a while.

Flojo, this isn't too much of a problem. It is a standard DK weight, so you'll be able to substitute almost any DK yarn you like.

They are discontinuing it? Damn, I just bought the pattern book for it. Found it at Cucumberpatch.

Sorry, there were quite a few when I looked the other day. I expect it will take a while for stocks to be used up.

There are always discount codes for Deramores around - RAV2013 will give you 10% off any order.

Deramores only have a few colours down to £4.13 from £5.50?

... trundles over to eBay & Deramores.

The lady in my local yarn shop told me! She'd just been told by the Designer Yarns rep last week. That's why Deramores are having a big sale on it at the moment.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

For me (but I am v clumsy) the yarn is too fine and prone to snagging to use for a jumper. How about a shawl or wrap?

Vintage Freemont

Secret of Change (rather a lot of yarn in this one)

CallMeCordelia the cashemerino DK is being discontinued? All of it? How do you know? When? Gahhhhhhhhhhhh

MerryMingeWhingesAgain Tue 19-Mar-13 19:40:50

It's a standard DK weight so any pattern written for DK is likely to work, just check a swatch first.

Callmecordelia Tue 19-Mar-13 19:39:28

Also, just to warn you - this yarn is being discontinued, so you might want to stock up....

Go to ravelry, look up the yarn, then click 'projects'' (meaning 'projects made using this particular yarn'), then have a browse through the photos till you find something that you like. It is my favourite feature of ravelry!

Flojobunny Sun 17-Mar-13 23:55:21

I wouldn't know where to start!

MyHeadWasInTheSandNowNot Sun 17-Mar-13 23:44:23

Have you tried Ravelry?

Flojobunny Sun 17-Mar-13 23:41:06

Having done some Woolly hug squares, I love Debbie Bliss cashmerino dk, but all the patterns are for babies. Where can I find a pattern for a nice jumper for me using this?
