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!

                Great basic yarn. I'm using it for a lacework shrug, but I've used it for baby items and accessories. Works up softly, great stitch definition, combination of blockable and machine washable is hard to find.
