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.

    Comments about Cascade Yarns 128 Superwash:

    I really love this yarn for chunky knit hats and scarves. It knits up fast and is super soft! I love the texture it gives to the knits, being a two ply.

    This is my go-to for all winter chunky knits.

    I do wish that they would have brighter, fun colors as the colors they offer seem to be a little on the neutral side.

      Can't say enough good things about this yarn. I have knit scarves and a hat with this yarn. I am currently in the process of knitting a cabled shrug called 'Chateau' by Melissa Schaschwary. The cables come out soft and plumpy in this yarn.

        It works up into a lovely soft texture.
        I'm making an afghan. Feels great and looks good. I have afghans that are over 20 years old and I expect this to be around for a long time.

            This yarn is soft and beautiful and easy to work with. My only complaint is that the colors are significantly darker than shown on the web site by several shades.

                The service was fantastic. I requested a specific dye lot to match a color I found on sale and they found it!

                  This wool makes a wonderful baby blanket, and because the dye is the same, it and be combined with Superwash 220. I make baby sweaters out of 220 and then matching blankets out of 128 and they match perfectly.
