Fluffy Clouds Blanket | Yarn Options
|May 20, 2013||Filled under Patterns, Update|
I’ve got several emails about your confusion with Cascade Cotton Rich yarn. Thank you so much for letting me know.
First. Cascade has two weights of Cotton Rich yarn:
- Cascade Cotton Rich (80 yd/1.75 oz)
- Cascade Cotton Rich DK (135.6 yd/1.75 oz). This one is used for Fluffy Clouds Blanket.
And yeah, it’s really expensive yarn, even if such lovely for baby blankets. But the good news is that I’ve recently discovered Omega Trigo yarn, which is about the same quality and yardage (a bit thinner), and has pretty affordable price – $5.50 for 3.5 oz (100 g) or $5.22 if buy 5 skeins all one color. Could we ask for more?
You will need 6 balls of Trigo to make the Fluffy Clouds Blanket (total costs $33) and this place is the best one to buy this yarn (amazing custom service and SUPER fast shipping).
