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 have knitted with Cascade 220 yarn in various weights for MANY years... both Superwash and "regular" wool, and have always been pleased with the results. That is no longer true!!! I am currently knitting a scarf/shawl with Cascade 220 Superwash Sport and I have never had a yarn shed and "fuzz" like this yarn is doing. My project looks like it's 20 years old and has been worn and washed too many times... and it isn't even off the needles yet. It looks so bad that I may never wear it, after untold hours of knitting. I see that the new Cascade dyelots now come from China instead of Peru, so maybe that is why this is the worst yarn I have knit with in 50+ years of knitting. I won't waste my time and money on this yarn again!

      Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash Sport:

      I used the yarn for a fair isle pullover. It has a soft hand and great drape. Periodically the yarn will split, so I had to be careful not to knit too fast. It seems to float on the needles, so it was easy to work with.

        Tends to split easily. So that makes it hard when I drop a stitch.

            I am using this for a stranded color work sweater. The weight is perfect because there is not a lot of bulk despite all the carried yarn. The sweater will be extremely soft, and the colors are very vivid.

              The color was beautiful and bright,and stayed that way after washed and dried.

              I found the strands slick and easily unraveled, which made it quick to knit BUT frustrating when you had to fix a mistake. Stitches seemed to come apart and disappear away from your fingers.

                I used my Cascade superwash 220 sport to knit a lacey sweater. It knit beautifully and I love the sweater. It wears well and washes well. This is a great yarn to use for all of your projects.
