    (The major detriment is that I'm always tempted to add to my stash, end up buying against my better judgement and not using as quickly as I had intended or on the original project I had intended! I often am intending to make a major item such as a sweater then breaking it up into a scarf because it is quicker to have.) The product received is always as described, usually even the colors shown are as close to reality as it would seem possible. The texture is great, etc., and obviously not an item rejected by poor manufacture, or rejected for other poor quality and thrown into the online market because it can't be seen individually at time of purchase.

    Actual color s nothing like I thought

    The colors show on the page were very deceptive...not even close to what I was expecting...very disappointed.

        Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Discontinued Colors:

        I had been looking for the perfect yarn to do the Ivy League Shawl in an issue of Creative Knitting Magazine that I had for a couple of years. Most Shawls are lace or fingering weight and I wanted something a little heavier. This was perfect. The shawl turn out beautiful. Very happy with my purchase.

        Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Discontinued Colors:

        I purchased ths yarn specifically because it came recommended for the swatches and projects in the Master Handknitting program of the TKGA. After working with it I probably would look for another yarn should I have need of something similar. Some of the colors were softer and worked better than others, possibly an effect of the dyeing process, but I did not like its tendency to split. Price was reasonable and there are a good selection of colors.

                  Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Discontinued Colors:

                  This workhorse yarn is great. You can count on it to do the job, whatever you are making. I am pairing it with Cascade 220 Handpaints and finding that this is just slightly smaller in diameter than the Handpaint strand, but I don't think it will be noticed in the finished piece. It is not remarkably soft, but feels like ordinary wool, which is completely acceptable.

                    Using this discontinued color (why???)to make "Sprig". The pattern will show beautifully - even with this darker color (khaki).
