Having difficulty finding some sport weight, machine washable yarn for sock making on my circular sock knitting machine, I gave this yarn a try. Wow, really nice, soft socks that knitted up with no problems whatsoever. I do not know how well they will wear or if they might pill, but after a couple washes, they seem just fine.

At the same time, I evaluated some Kroy Pattons yarn that was 75% wool, 25% nylon. The Kroy was a lighter, sport weight and the socks were not as soft, though they probably will wear better. I much prefer the Cascade 220 yarn.

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!

    I would never use this yarn again. It has begun to pill and the man's cabled sweater I am knitting is not even finished yet.

          I'm a relatively new knitter and enjoyed working with this yarn. The yarn was available in the bold colors that I needed and was as soft as some of the more expensive sport yarns I had looked at. I knitted a striped hat using a #2 circular needle as I wanted a tight knit with small stiches. Worked well.

              I searched for a couple of weeks for a wool blend (not polyester) in a soft brown color that would be appropriate for a baby blanket. This was the only product that fit those requirements and I am so happy with the wool.

                  Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash Sport:

                  I made a child's sweater out of this, and soaked the pieces for blocking. They stretched like superwash then, which I expected. But when I put the sweater in the washer on delicate and then in the dryer in normal, I ended up with a fuzzy, dense, pill-y sweater about three inches shorter than when it went in. One more wash and it will have felted perfectly... Not what I expected from the care label!

                  Also, the colour 811 (Como blue) is far closer to teal than it looked like on several monitors, but that's comparatively minor.

                        I've made toddler sweaters and adult sweaters out of this yarn. It is soft, not scratchy and it's great towork with. It doesn't split. It shows up stitches well.
