Cascade 220 has been changed- it has something to do with the processing, spinning etc and the company won't explain what has happened. The new style skeins have a dyelot number with 5 numbers and a alpha letter (see example below) vs the old style which had 4 numbers. Since November 2014, it almost impossible to find enough old style (the one with 4 numericals in the dyelot number) to make a sweater. Initially I found the yarn felt different - something to do with the spinning/ plying. It feels like a harder yarn in the hand. There is less loft than old Cascade and it is coarser.

12-30-14: I bought at Webs Cascade 220 (regular not superwash) #4010 (Straw) Dyelot 2K3548, which is the new style yarn - dyelot new style. I swatched it flat on #4 needle and carefully recorded the st ct: on #4 needle I got 25 sts over 4," or 6.25 st/in unblocked. I like to downgauge a little knowing that blocking makes it grow and I like a tighter fabric. I made a cardi in Cascade old style that came out at 5.8 st/in and it is perfect. I have worked up the first skein for the new project - about 4" long, so time for a gauge check.

Unblocked, now getting 25 st over 4" or 6.25 st/in. I blocked a corner of the sweater using my usual method of warm water sponged on, blotted and patted down and let dry.

IT SHRUNK!!!! The 25 st area marked off with thin scrap wool, now measures 3-3/4" which is 6.66 st/in. HOW CAN THIS BE??!!! In all my experience with wool yarn, blocking relaxes the wool and makes it expand. I've never seen it shrink. This means over 308 st the chest measurement will be 46" instead of 49."

WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO CASCADE 220?????

    WEBS service is excellent - I received my yarn within 3 days of ordering it.
    I am knitting a toddler's jumper for my granddaughter. Cascade yarn is wonderful to work with - knits-up easily. The color is consistent throughout.

    I am always pleased with the products I order from WEBS

      The best customer service - the wrong color was sent by accident, and I was quickly sent a label for a free return, and the correct color was shipped immediately!

      Comments about Cascade Yarns 220:

      I go back to Cascade 220 again and again. I love the huge color selection, which includes the heathers I like so much. I usually knit sweaters or vests with this yarn, but make styles that are worn over another layer. The 220 is just a bit too coarse to wear directly next to the skin. That's the only reason I held back one star. For the right project, however, this is wonderful yarn.

      Pills! Pills! Pills!

      Best Uses

        Comments about Cascade Yarns 220:

        I bought this in navy to make an Irish sweater for my dad that took me nearly two years to complete. Firstly, there were many threads of undyed yarn interwoven that made it look like lint. The sweater stretched ridiculously with wear, so thinking I could reshape it with washing, I then discovered after only five months of wear that it had also pilled heavily. During the second wash and block, it shed shed shed. (I hand wash all my knits) I will have to spend hours shaving the pills and trying t to shape it so it isn't to his knees and doesn't look like trash. I can't possilby recommend this yarn, and I will never buy again!

          I bought this yarn to make felted slippers. Have not started them yet, but I am pleased with the yarn. It is uniformly dyed and feels comfy to the touch. Looking forward to making the slippers as soon as I finish a couple of other projects.

            I use the yarn to knit and then I felt the product. Like the warmth that is felt with the doll or elephant. Making the mice and filling them with catnip I am sure that it is a product that will stand rough treatment.
