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!

    Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash Sport:

    I used this yarn to make my new baby several blankets and sweaters. They knit beautifully and the gauge and size is true to its label. Even though it splits every now and then and only some colors, it is easy to knit with great definition. There is a wide range of colors that make it easy to combine and get the right colors for everyone.

        I am using this yarn to knit a sweater. I like the fact that it is washable and also it was on sale. The color is gorgeous and the project is coming along very nicely. The yarn is easy to work with not splitty at all. I would recommend this yarn to a friend.

          Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash Sport:

          This used to be one of my favorite yarns but the last 2 times I've used it, it pills like crazy. Did something change? I already saw a bit of fuzziness building as I was knitting, and after the first wearing (cardigan) there's pills all over. Looks like an old sweater. Unfortunately I have to cross this yarn off my "recommend" list. Might be ok for scarves where there isn't a lot of friction.

            With the prospect of a new great nephew, I bought the book 'Sixty More Quick Baby Knits" and picked out many to knit. I was pleased with the color choices and texture of this yarn. The projects came out as expected and appear to wear well. Superwash merino is a great item for new moms. I regret that the pattern sizes are mostly only up to 18 months. I would highly recommend this yarn and getting it from Webs is an added bonus.

              I'm currently using this product (which I purchased in soft pink) for an eternity scarf for a teenaged niece. It has wonderful heft and drapes well. This yarn in so soft - my friends in my knitting group couldn't believe it was wool! This site provides excellent customer service and extremely quick delivery. Couldn't be happier with this purchase!!!

                Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash Sport:

                Yarn splits easier than expected. It is fuzzier and perhaps warmer than most superwashes. Now for the BIG drawback. This is not colorfast. I expect a superwash to be washable. My sweater has red white and blue spiderman faces on it. My white eyes are a bit pink after blocking. I'm afraid to really wash it. The water immediately turned very pink. Not sure how to deal with this.
