There is some rumbling in the knitting world right now. Supposedly, Cascasde is sending emails to their customers, notifying them that they are in discussion (my word) with KFI’s attorney over the legitimecy of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran and Cashmere Luxury Aran. See one discussion on the topic. I’m not sure how legit this is but I’ve run into it twice today. If I have time later I’ll do more research.
Quite honestly? I don’t care. I like Cascade’s yarn and I like (although have yet to use but it’s in my yarn basket) Debbie Bliss Cashmerino. While I think both sides are a bit shady over this — Cascade for sending out an email slandering a company before anything has been, to my understanding, decided in court and KFI for possibly falsely labelling $8+ yarn — but I don’t think it will affect my buying habits.
