Very nice yarn. Knits up quickly. More of an aran/ bulky weight. Blooms a little so be aware of that. Has a nice softness to it. I made 3 baby cardigans out of and it performed well after washing. Stretched slightly. Lost about a stitch length and a half. Quite springy after drying. Gotta love that. Make sure u wash and dry your swatch before measuring gauge if u normally don't do that.

I bought several colors to create custom golf club head covers for a friend. I wanted a sturdy washable wool, and colors that wouldn't run. I used the same yarn 4 years ago, for the same purpose, plus for a quick baby cardigan. They all turned out well, though a bit limper than desired after washing.

Unfortunately, the yarn seems flimsier than it did back then: fluffy looking, but compresses to almost DK thickness when knit. I ended up doubling it up to get a sturdier fabric.

I was annoyed by fat felted knots and thin spots, about 2-3 per skein. I don't mind a bit of debris but I wouldn't use it again for baby projects or anything too close to the skin.

This is a perfectly acceptable yarn for the price, but for something durable and finer quality, I'd want another yarn. Still looking for it.

        Comments about Cascade Yarns 128 Superwash:

        This was recommended by a knitting friend. I bought a single skein to try it out and liked it. It feels like natural wool, not Superwash which is what I'm was looking for to make a throw. Now have 20 skeins to make the project and hoping it washes well in the machine. : )

          i'm making a cardigan and this yarn knits easily and consistent to gauge. it is really soft it could be worn next to the skin. stitch definition is very good.

                          The yarn is super soft. Washes great. Is very warm. It does felt a bit. Also there are random short pieces of differently colored yarn stuck to the yarn. They pull right off and there's only about 3-4 per skein. I bought 8 from 2 different places and every skein had those random pieces. No knots in any of the skeins though!
