I've make more slouch hats out of this than I can count. Great stitch definition, great drape, & extremely soft. Plus so many beautiful colors to choose from! The only reason I give it 4 stars out of 5 is that it is incorrectly labeled a 'worsted' weight. It is not even a 'light worsted', it is a full on DK weight so buy accordingly.

This was a horribly disappointing yarn. I used two colors of it to knit a very special project that I wanted to be durable and last for years, only to have the yarn start to disintegrate, pill, shrink and shred when the completed project was washed on gentle/warm with a little Woolite and dried on low heat. It was turned into a partially felted, fuzzy, lumpy mess that was beyond salvaging. I will never use this yarn, or anything else from Cascade, again.

    Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash:

    I love this yarn for sweater knitting because it just the right weight-not to heavy that sweater drags on you & not too light for creating warmth for winter . It creates nice stitch definition for cabling and lace motifs too. It comes in so many different colors! Being able to launder it in the machine on gentle cycle is awesome. It's a good value for a strong performer.

      Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash:

      I almost always use this yarn for grandchildren sweaters. They are mostly taking care of their own clothing (college, high school) and this is easy for them to care for. Colors are nice with lots of choices. They love getting Nana sweaters!

      I love the customer care that I get at WEBS. I have dealt with them for many years and when I lived farther North, even visited the shop. Wish I still could do so!

                  I can't believe it took this long to try this yarn, but it was all that I hoped- a lovely reliable workhorse. I made two gansey patterned hats out of it for Christmas and was very impressed by how they came out. Smooth, smooshy, with great stitch definition. It's just the thing.

                    I've made several shawls with this wool. They are soft and not itchy, despite being 100% wool. They hold up well, and are nice and warm. I love working with this wool as it has great stitch definition and holds its shape when blocked. It's also easy to knit with since it doesn't split easily. I recommend it for items that you'll wear a lot - a very durable, wearable, washable product.

                    I love this yarn and have it in lots of colors so I can grab a little here and there for intarsia projects. It has nice stitch definition. It has a great hand.

                    Two words of caution: 1) sew the ends in really well. The processing that keeps it from felting makes it slippery and ends can pop out during washing. 2) washable does not mean not feltable. If repeatedly washed in warm water and dried on warm, it felts. Wash cold, gentle. Dry flat.
