My problem was not yarn, but interface--making a fine selection of color online was a waste of time. Neither color I bought looked like the photo--I know there is a difference in monitors so I checked out color on two machines. Still, a big discrepancy--"Midnight Heather" looks like a medium blue on screen but is actually very dark like... midnight. (I took a chance I'd get what I was looking at, but should have believed the name.) "Turquoise Pebble" is much greener than turquoise. Settled for rather than hassle a return, but a little annoyed. Not sure I'd buy from the site again. If I had a picture, I'd upload it.

Great Yarn

      Comments about Cascade Yarns 220:

      This is a great work horse of a yarn. I have used a lot of the 220 worsted and it is always consistent. I have used it mostly in felted projects and it felts very nicely.

        I used this on the Dark Mark Illusion scarf for my grandson, and it turned out beautiful! The yarn shows the stitches wonderfully and so far has not "wilted". I would definately use this yarn again!

          Comments about Cascade Yarns 220:

          I found that the white yarn was too stiff, almost like cotton. So I couldn't do more intricate stitches as I had planned. I've used other 220s and never have this experience.

          8013 = Ugliest color I've ever seen!

          Comments about Cascade Yarns 220:

          This is by far the ugliest color I've ever had the misfortune to buy. Fortunately I THINK it can be dyed.

          This yarn isn't what I'd call soft, but it isn't coarse either.

                    Cascade 220 Heathers color 8013 (Walnut Heather) is a greyish brown color that in no way resembles the color on my IPad. My bad! Now I'm stuck with 10 skeins of this stuff because I opened the sealed package.

                    Softness is relative but IMO this yarn isn't soft.

                    Overall I'm not impressed with this yarn.

                    Lovely basic yarn. Great price. I'll order it again! Nice and soft, although I think it might be a little itchy as a scarf.
