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 love knitting with Cascade 220. The colors are gorgeous, and fun to mix and match in sweaters. I've been using it for years, and will continue to do so. It has a wonderful hand, and holds shaping well. Best wool yarn ever.

          Perfect yarn for hats and mittens. Personally I wouldn't use this for scarves just because it's not quite as soft around the face as some other yarns - this does have a wool feel. Current project is a hat with this yarn held double so it's a nice tight knit. Knits well with no splitting, and is warm.

                  I love Cascade 220 - - it is my go-to worsted weight yarn for knit/felt projects, Christmas stockings, two+ color knitting, etc. It is a great quality for the $$ and if you can get it on sale, do yourself the favor and get enough for a sweater for yourself!

                    Comments about Cascade Yarns 220:

                    I have used this yarn in the past for several sweaters and thus had no qualms about recommending it for a sweater I am knitting for someone. However, I have skeins of this yarn in my stash that are far softer and have more loft than does the "Sparrow" shade purchased recently. When wound it seems to be even thinner and stringier and does not give me the gauge I obtained in the past. I will likely make one more purchase at some point to see if this was a "one off" related perhaps to the shade, but I am very disappointed this time.
