Love this yarn for warm weather garments

This is a lovely warm weather yarn that is next to the skin soft. It dried nicely in the dryer. It knit up very quickly with good stitch definition.

Soft and Colorful

NOT Colorfast!! Caution: tie skein multiple times, then rinse in warm vinegar water and then wash (I used Eucalon) and repeat this process until color does not appear in the water....Read complete review

NOT Colorfast!! Caution: tie skein multiple times, then rinse in warm vinegar water and then wash (I used Eucalon) and repeat this process until color does not appear in the water. Hang to dry. If you don't tie the skein multiple times you will end up with a birdnest. If you don't rinse and wash you will end up with color bleeding. Aside from this, it will make a nice, soft blanket that is not as warm as 100% wool (good for grandson in Florida!)

      Comments about Cascade Yarns Sierra:

      I am using this to knit a lofty and warm yet breathable infinity scarf. The material this yarn creates is absolutely perfect and I am sad there are not more colors left to choose from. My only regret is not discovering this yarn sooner.

      Service and delivery comments:

      The service was wonderful and the shipping was speedy as per usual :) I am always pleased with WEBS

      Comments about Cascade Yarns Sierra:

      I made a sweater for myself with this product and love the way it turned out. My 4 and half year old granddaughter, who will not wear anything that is "scratchy" tried the sweater on and asked if I would make her one. As she described it, "it's so soft, Nonna."

        I made myself a lace cardigan. And I made a little friend a size 2 stripy cardigan using three colors. Both turn out very pretty. It ks a shame this yarn is no longer made. It knitted up fast

          Comments about Cascade Yarns Sierra:

          Bought this to knit a cardigan. It is a true worsted, and the blend of cotton/wool is lovely. There was some cabling in the garment I made, and it showed the stitch definition well. Good yardage. The colour did run a little when I wet blocked.

          Service and delivery comments:

          As always, service was exceptional - Webs even went above and beyond when I ran short of yarn and found me two more skeins of the same dye lot!

              The hats and scarves I've made my grandkids get lots of wear and tear and not much care in the wash, but they stand up really well and still look good.
