Cascade 220 has been changed- it has something to do with the processing, spinning etc and the company won't explain what has happened. The new style skeins have a dyelot number with 5 numbers and a alpha letter (see example below) vs the old style which had 4 numbers. Since November 2014, it almost impossible to find enough old style (the one with 4 numericals in the dyelot number) to make a sweater. Initially I found the yarn felt different - something to do with the spinning/ plying. It feels like a harder yarn in the hand. There is less loft than old Cascade and it is coarser.

12-30-14: I bought at Webs Cascade 220 (regular not superwash) #4010 (Straw) Dyelot 2K3548, which is the new style yarn - dyelot new style. I swatched it flat on #4 needle and carefully recorded the st ct: on #4 needle I got 25 sts over 4," or 6.25 st/in unblocked. I like to downgauge a little knowing that blocking makes it grow and I like a tighter fabric. I made a cardi in Cascade old style that came out at 5.8 st/in and it is perfect. I have worked up the first skein for the new project - about 4" long, so time for a gauge check.

Unblocked, now getting 25 st over 4" or 6.25 st/in. I blocked a corner of the sweater using my usual method of warm water sponged on, blotted and patted down and let dry.

IT SHRUNK!!!! The 25 st area marked off with thin scrap wool, now measures 3-3/4" which is 6.66 st/in. HOW CAN THIS BE??!!! In all my experience with wool yarn, blocking relaxes the wool and makes it expand. I've never seen it shrink. This means over 308 st the chest measurement will be 46" instead of 49."

WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO CASCADE 220?????

        Cascade 220 is my favorite "go to" worsted weight wool. I have made many sweaters and accessories with this yarn, and they have held up for years. The color selection is awesome, too. Few yarns are available in over 150 colors!

          Comments about Cascade Yarns 220:

          For sweaters knitted with worsted weight yarn, this is the best one I have ever used. I knitted a traditional Gansey with many different designs, but what impressed me the most was the definition of the plain knitted areas. I knit mostly in the round and this yarn adapts itself very well to the Russian join. It is practically invisible. No other worsted weight yarn for me but 220 Cascade!

                  I bought this yarn to do swatches for a TKGA program. I bought the yarn in a light color and it was the perfect yarn for stitch definition.

                  It was coarse to touch, but after blocking it softened considerably.

                      A local yarn shop taught me to knit in 2004 and introduced me to superwash wool. I was explaining my desire to make my son (then 8 yrs old) a stocking hat that would be easy care. They suggested I try Cascade superwash wool and I did. I haven't made all of his stocking hats from superwash wool but I have made a couple of lap-afghans and a few scarves. It is easy to work with, durable and easy to care for.
