Absolutely no complaints about this beautiful yarn. Soooo soft to the touch and knit up beautifully on size 10 and size 11 circular Addi Turbos. Used it for a cowl and the 10 needle produced a more dense fabric, while the 11 had more drape, but still plenty of coverage. Could easily see knitting this on size 13s as well for a cowl or scarf. Believe the size 11s are best bet for a sweater or clothing article, even though the label calls for size 10. This is another great aspect of the yarn -- definitely quality and not skimpy in the gauge department like so many other yarns can be. The colors are to die for. I selected the dark olive green and it is rich and very evenly dyed. I will definitely buy this yarn again and again. Can use it for babies and next to the skin items and would recommend "gentle" washing so as not to interfere with its incredibly soft hand for a 100% wool.

LOVE IT!!

I am finding this yarn very perplexing. It is super soft for basic wool which I was very excited about. yet now that I am knitting with it I am not as fond. I am a very experienced knitter and yet I cannot get even stitches with this. Maybe it is because I am using wooden needles and should be using metal? Wondering if better slip would prevent the stiches from looking so wonky. I think I am going to have to rip out the sweater that I started a week ago. I bought it in ecru so the stitches show up very clearly. So mad that they look twisty and weird! I think that some of it is because this is not a single ply. who knows. not sure when and if I will buy more of this.... they have lovely colors and I would like to see if I can get around this stitch evenness problem by using addi turbos or something.

        Knitting a nice thick shawl for my daughter for next winter. The yarn is soft and very easy and enjoyable to knit with. The knitting goes very fast because of the weight.

            Comments about Cascade Yarns 128 Superwash:

            I selected this product because it was chunky weight and machine washable. It offers a wide variety of colors and was ideal for the car blanket project I wanted to complete. I had been to the local craft stores looking for some chunky yarns but they did not have the soft touch and easy of knitting the 128 Superwash offers. I have ordered more of this yarn to make a throw for the living room. Love this yarn!

                I've used this to make scarves and hats -- with intarsia to knit in some emblems and other designs. The yarn is so soft and works up beautifully. Much softer than regular wool, so I think it's perfect for the teenagers who will be the recipients of my projects :).
                My only complaint is that I have several skeins on backorder (and they've been on backorder for awhile), which is holding up some projects I was hoping to start. Hopefully they'll resolve this soon. I noticed many colors are backordered.

                          I knit a baby sweater/coat with this and gave it as a christening gift. It was soft and worked up nicely. I did notice it was a little fuzzy when I was finished and I'm hoping it doesn't pill when put to use by the baby.
