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'm currently working on my second crocheted blanket using this yarn. It's very soft and warm. I love it, but there are a few things I would recommend. The yarn splits and unravels easily, so it is better for projects with larger size crochet hooks that can better snag the yarn without splitting it into strands (J hook is working much better than the G hook did).
The other precaution I would give is to color test each yarn before using strong detergent or stain remover on it. I know it's obvious, but I was doing color work with 7 yarns and tested the 3 of them I had leftover yarn for which held up fine under, as did 3 others when I used it, but it completely bleached out the light blue.

    I knitted a child's sweater with this. The child didn't find it itchy at all. It knits up nicely and washes well too.

    knitting a baby blanket and it feels nice
    the first three skeins were hard to get started into a ball, but by the fourth one, I figured it out so that it went much more smoothly

        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.
