My problem was not yarn, but interface--making a fine selection of color online was a waste of time. Neither color I bought looked like the photo--I know there is a difference in monitors so I checked out color on two machines. Still, a big discrepancy--"Midnight Heather" looks like a medium blue on screen but is actually very dark like... midnight. (I took a chance I'd get what I was looking at, but should have believed the name.) "Turquoise Pebble" is much greener than turquoise. Settled for rather than hassle a return, but a little annoyed. Not sure I'd buy from the site again. If I had a picture, I'd upload it.

    Comments about Cascade Yarns 220:

    this is a wonderfully warm yarn, which because of its thickness, knits up quickly & easily. although the in-hand color differs from what was reflected on my computer, it's not displeasing, just darker than what was represented online. additionally, it's sold in hanks, so it will need to be rolled into a ball; again, not a drawback, simply a pause. overall, i'd give this yarn a 4.5 out of 5. highly recommended.

      This is my go-to utility yarn. I absolutely love it - it's a real workhorse. I've made tons of baby & adults hats, dog sweaters, scarves (including the HP 1st & 3rd years, and the Washington football team), a Gryffindor Quidditch sweater - burgundy and gold is perfect. So glad you stock it in massive quantities. I especially appreciate that the colors are consistent from dye lot to dye lot since I never estimate correctly!

        This is my go-to for any felting project. When I need crayon box colors for a fun project, no one comes close to the choices available in Cascade 220. It's a great value - I never feel like I bought an inferior product - no snags, no unevenness.

        Comments about Cascade Yarns 220:

        This is a less expensive and very versatile yarn, you can make hats, scarves, toys and gloves with it and it knits up beautifully. I do not make sweaters and socks so I cannot vouch for them in that aspect. If you are felting the yarn felts nicely in the machine. Its my go-to yarn for most everday things that do not need to machine washable. I love it.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Delivery took a bit, but i suspect that was due to the sale going on, and since I ordered a large amount last year during the cascade sale as well it was expected for the delivery to take about 4 weeks. But it was an awesome sale and worth the wait.

              I purchased a knitting book that highlighted felted purses to make. I picked a pattern out of the book and Cascade 220 Worsted Wool was recommend as the yarn to use. Fantastic yarn and great advice for making purses. I tried to cut expenses by purchasing a less expensive wool and I paid dearly!!!! Don't scrimp on the wool you use when making felted anything. Cascade 220 is the best!!!!

                  Nice to knit with, not the softest yarn but average. I'm knitting a sweater, so far looks great.
                  The color (lichen) is more beautifull than the picture, all the undertones make this yarn more interesting.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Great customers service. I'm in Israel and the package arrived just one week after purchase, that's fast!
