    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 ordered this wool to make a Fairisle style sweater for my grandson. I have not done such a pattern before. I had to unravel it after about 40 rows. The yarn is very forgiving. I like how well it knits up--both in same color ribbing and in the pattern. Looks really good.
      I am delighted that it is machine washable!

        Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash:

        This is the first time I have knit with Cascade 220 Superwash. I love way it knits up. It is very soft, just perfect for a seven-year-old boy's sweater. My one comment is I think the weight of the yarn is a bit light to be considered worsted. To me, it's more of a DK weight.

            I used the Superwash for a baby afghan for a newly married couple that were expecting their first baby. They live in Minot ND where the winters can be brutally cold. I wanted something warm and the Superwash is great! Delivery of the yarn was quick and I will definitely use this company again! Cathy

              The yarn is soft and works up quickly which is nice when making a sweater. The only problem I had was the fact that it collects animal hair like no other, since I have pets and have to dehair everything anyways.

                      I'm making my 19 year old grandson hunting socks from this yarn. I wanted him to have nice soft socks and also knit a cable pattern for the socks. I love this yarn and I'm making him two pairs. Also the yarn is 100% wool and machine washable! It's easy care for him.

                      I am in the process of knitting a cape for my granddaughter. Right now invisible increases are visible and I don't know how they will press, block out. Don't know the cause is the color or the yarn. Bottom Line: I don't know yet whether I would recommend this yarn or not.

                        This is my "go to" yarn when knitting for children. It is wonderful to knit with due to it's softness and consistent colors. It holds it's shape over time and withstands abuse by the child. Can be washed easily and often without any problems. I have, on occasion, underestimated the amount of yarn and had to order more and the color has been consistent even when I have purchased another dye lot of the same color.
