            Comments about Cascade Yarns Fixation Effects & Spray Dyed:

            I am so happy to see some new mixed color of the original Fixation yarn. I made a baby hat for a friend's baby and it striped well. So cute too. Has the same great features of original Fixation in that it washes and dries nicely. Hats made with Fixation yarn will last baby/child/adult a very long time. It stretches easily and that's what I love about it.

                I was given 2 balls of Fixation to make Chemc Caps for a "Knit for the Cure" event. I became entranced with the yarn and REALLY love making those caps! I enjoy using verigated yarns of all kinds as they keep my projects from becoming boring. What else can I make with Fixation???

                    I only use it for making headbands. You have to get used to using it. You cannot stretch while using. I have not used for anything else.

                      Comments about Cascade Yarns Fixation Effects & Spray Dyed:

                      I make headbands for the young girls who have to stay at the hospital for extended periods and cannot have their hair washed due to treatments or maybe they are having chemo. The girls didn't want a hat or something big but making so many headbands all different sizes became unrealistic for us volunteers and for the nurses to try out on each girl needing one. This yarn is perfect. One small size works for them all.
