    I knit lots of baby shoes & I have liked this yarn for those projects. It has a good weight and great stitch definition. The main reason I feel I keep coming back to it it the endless color options.

    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.

      I enjoy using Cascade 220 for sweaters, socks and vests. It knits up nicely and there are a great variety of colors ( I particularly like the heathers). It doesn't pill badly and washes easily.

        Comments about Cascade Yarns 220:

        I purchased a knitting book that highlighted felted purses to make. I picked a pattern out of the book and Cascade 220 Worsted Wool was recommend as the yarn to use. Fantastic yarn and great advice for making purses. I tried to cut expenses by purchasing a less expensive wool and I paid dearly!!!! Don't scrimp on the wool you use when making felted anything. Cascade 220 is the best!!!!

            Nice to knit with, not the softest yarn but average. I'm knitting a sweater, so far looks great.
            The color (lichen) is more beautifull than the picture, all the undertones make this yarn more interesting.

                This is the first time I am using cascade 220. I am making a sweater . The yarn is very nice to work with, the garment feels very nice & soft. I am hoping it will hand wash well, and hold up without pilling.
                Not quite done, sleeves and finishing work to be completed.
                Delivery time was good, color as I expected from ad, nice sale price as well.

                I'm using this product for a crocheted sweater. It has fabulous stitch definition for the pattern. The yarn is not terribly soft, but not exactly coarse...to be expected with a 100% wool. It works up wonderfully and beautifully. Would definitely recommend to others...

                        This is a great "all purpose" yarn, shows texture well, very warm for those cold Wisconsin winter months.
                        Love, love, love Cascade 220!!!
                        Great color selection!! Will be knitting many, many more sweaters with this yarn now that my son is old enough to appreciate hand knit garments!
