    I have recently knitted two wonderful little shawls/wraps using this yarn: the first with a blue-green colorway and the second in a red combination. The yarn comes in terrific colors that knit up with nice random swaths of color. It's a fun yarn, knits easily, is machine washable, and of the quality I expect from the Cascade 220 line.
    I highly recommend it.

    I bought this yarn because of the awesome colors. Strangely enough, the colors were not as intense after knitting as they were in the hank. I knitted a sweater that was predominantly stockinette and due to the inconsistency in the thickness of the yarn I was not pleased with the final results. The yarn is washable and soft, really nice to work with, expensive too. So, I've spent a large sum of money and time on a project that I'm less than happy with. I will not buy this yarn again.

    Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash Paints:

    I knitted the Milk Run Shawl in the Cascade 220 yarn. It was so soft and easy to knit and work with. A pleasure to handle. Then I purchase the hand painted Cascade 220 to make another, same pattern shawl. The hand painted yarn is not as soft, more difficult to knit as it isn't as pliable, and feels stiff in my hand. I love the colors but not the texture of this yarn.

        Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash Paints:

        I always enjoy knitting with the Cascade 220 yarns. This particular style (superwash paints) is a pleasure to work with. The color combinations are very nice, it's a good weight for many types of knitted items, the skeins are a generous size, and the yarn is machine washable.

                      Great for almost anything that needs to be washable. Colors are beautiful - I orders the blue-green yarn (not sure what the name is), and it is very pretty.
