    Cascade Yarns Soft Spun

    Note: As with many single ply yarns, be cautious when seaming with Soft Spun as the yarn can come apart when pulled too tightly.

      I knit and felt hats and occasionally need a little inspiration to get me started. Just opening up the box of this yarn was like a shot in the arm. The colors beg to be mixed. I usually use a single or double strand of Cascade 220 and the hats are great, but the single strand is a little light and the doulbe is a little heavy duty, but with a single Cascade Soft Spun they come out "just right." I just love the soft color palette.

      This is an update to a review I posted earlier. I've been working with this yarn for a few weeks now, haven't even finished off the first skein and have already encountered serious unraveling, pilling, and splitting. I doubt any garment will hold up long enough to be worn even once, and will be returning the remaining skeins.

      Comments about Cascade Yarns Soft Spun:

      I'm using this yarn to make a lap blanket. It is soft and light. Because it is mostly unspun I don't know that it would hold up well in an item that gets lots of abuse (socks, mittens, hard-use sweater). I also don't know yet if it pills much.

        Comments about Cascade Yarns Soft Spun:

        only one thing that did not make this yarn perfect was that because it is single ply it can tear while knitting - didn't happen much though. I knew before I purchased the yarn, however.

          Comments about Cascade Yarns Soft Spun:

          I use this yarn for heavy felted mittens and slipper/boots. Because it's single ply it felts very well. Because it's single ply if you have a lot of weaving in of ends, they can get a little thin - have to be careful with it.

          Comments about Cascade Yarns Soft Spun:

          I'm a beginner and am making a sweater and can't wait to finish it. Even though it's been unraveled a dozen times already, it is holding up well. There is some pilling throughout skein but it doesn't seem to be a problem w/finished product. Just don't pull too hard as it is easy to break.

            I used this yarn in the color Russette to make a waterfall scarf. As soon as I opened the package the color of the yarn was so breathtaking and the yarn was soft. I couldn't wait to use it. The finished project is amazing and I get so many complements on my scarf. I give this yarn a 5 star; I found nothing wrong with this yarn.

            I was so happy to find the exact yarn match at your store. I had bought this yarn, but not enough, in the States and could not find any more. Not only did you have the exact yarn, but your prices were better!! This yarn looks beautiful in the pattern I am knitting.

              This yarn is lovely, soft, and not scratchy. It knits up very well and I'm very pleased with it. I purchased the cobalt heather and the color is just beautiful...vibrant and a bit heathery, which I love.
