Cosette is just so soft and luscious. A blend of superwash wool and cashmere/nylon, it has a beautiful luminous halo and a light airy drape.  That’s why it’s just perfect for any DK sweater pattern or accessory.

The colors shown reflect the colors of Cosette, however, they are shown on a different base. Cosette is a plied yarn with a nice twist, as shown in the "group" shot.

Dream in Color

I love Cosette yarn so soft and has wonderful stitch definition and’s I like the drap of it Currently working on a three color shawl the pattern is Winter Concept Shawl by Elizabeth Finn

Cosette yarn is Great!

I love working with this yarn. Such a nice feel and it drapes so well also. I started with the Petrified Forest - a beautiful dark teal and have now ordered the Miami Red which is also beautiful shade of red. Merino and cashmere…what more could you want? 😀

Cashmere… need we say more?

I chose this yarn to wear around my neck. I deserve wonderful things, and this yarn is wonderful. Soft, luscious, and in the colors I have? Bright!

I usually have several projects going at once and flit back and forth between them. This yarn made me yearn to knit just this one thing, and get it done, and enjoy wearing the resulting cowl.
