    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!)

        A shame that Cascade has discontinued this yarn. Knits and wears well for kids' garments. Lovely colors. Machine wash and dry with no shrinking.

            The yarn knits up beautifully. I am allergic to wool, but this cotton wool blend poses no problem for me. The color was a bit different than it appeared online but is very pretty.

                      Comments about Cascade Yarns Sierra:

                      I love this yarn! It is so soft and has a lighter weight than other cotton yarns. I am using it to crochet baby blankets. Even though the colors I ordered (marigold, plum and spearmint) were NOT what I expected, I actually liked the last two better than what I saw on my computer screen. They are much more bright and vibrant than they appeared online. I thought the marigold would be a mustard yellow but instead it was a bright orange. That was not what I was looking for but thankfully I had only ordered one hank to try it out.

                      Service and delivery comments:

                      I was so pleased with how quickly and efficiently my yarn was delivered. Very good service.

                          I really love this yarn - the wool gives it a bit more body than just plain cotton has. It frogs well and comes in beautiful colors. I'm sorry it's being discontinued. I have bought a bunch for my stash for spring/summer wear (light sweaters, tank tops, baby stuff). I haven't washed it yet but I think it will do fine.
