    I enjoyed working with this yarn. I made two scarves with it and both came out beautifully. I get many compliments on the one I made for myself. The color way is very consistent and made for a very impressive scarf with cables.

    I am knitting a cabled sweater and find the yarn very splitty - it is impossible to cable without a needle. When you slip a stitch off the needle it promptly tries to unravel and splits when you try to pick it up. I also have a lot of trouble with splitting the yarn with normal knitting/purling. The color isn't even close to what is shown on the web page - I ordered the 900 Charcoal which is shown as more of a medium gray. The yarn I received is labeled as 900 but the color is closer to the 815 Black. Luckily my son in law likes the color so I didn't have to return it. The yarn is very soft and has nice stitch definition, the fabric looks and feels lovely!

        This yarn is what is says. A good reliable superwash wool that comes in a multitude of colors. It's not an 'oh my god' yarn, but I'd recommend it for hundreds of projects and have used it for such.

          Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash Sport:

          I have used this yarn to knit a hat and a multi-colored linen stitch scarf. Like every machine washable wool yarn I have used, anything I knit with it "grows" a great deal when washed. Swatching plus washing the swatch is a must. I find that I need to use needles at least two sizes smaller than directions indicate. Unlike the 220 sport weight that has to be washed by hand, this yarn is made of merino wool and is not spun with a tight twist, so I expect it to pill if an item gets much wear. Thus, I have not used it for sweaters or other items subject to friction.

                  I was looking for a washable, solid color yarn in DK weight for a baby sweater for which I needed 4-5 colors. I found that in Cascade 220 Superwash Sport and for a wonderful price! With the discount I got for buying over $60 worth from WEBS, the price was even better! The sweater is turning out beautifully and the recipient will be thrilled.

                      Sorry, but I do not like this yarn. It splits constantly and you have to be very careful not to split your stitches. I am making a complicated cable pattern. Labor intensive. I cannot just sit back and enjoy my knitting. I will never buy this yarn again.
