I used this yarn to make a crochet basketweave afghan because the yarn specified in the pattern was discontinued. Webs had all the info about both yarns and made it easy for me to make a decision. I think it was a great substitute, it really allows you to appreciate the texture. While working, the piece naturally grew and got heavy, it stretched a little, but nothing a light blocking couldn't fix.

I have worked with Peruvian Highland wool many times before but this was a disappointment, it was thinner than expected and not at all soft to the touch. I made a cowl but it wasn't nice against the skin so I didn't bother making anything else with it.

    I purchased this yarn to make a sweater. I have not used this yarn yet but I have used cascade 128 superwash and I love it! I am sure this yarn will be wonderful also. And I especially love this yarn because I purchased it on sale.

      Comments about Cascade Yarns 128 Solid:

      I really like the way this yarn knits up and have purchased it more than once. My only complaint is that the last sweater I made with this yarn stretched after hand washing and laying flat to dry.

      Comments about Cascade Yarns 128 Solid:

      I used this yarn to make a tiered jacket for my granddaughter. It is so soft and lovely to work with, and knit up quickly due to its gauge. However, it stretches a great deal, and is not a sturdy yarn so I suggest using it for things that you want to be softer and more drapey. It's on the bulky side, not at all splitty and the colors are evenly dyed. It is very soft and a great price. Worth a try, for sure, and glad I did. Another Cascade yarn to add to my stash :)

        I chose this as a bulky base to which I added a mohair and a boucle to achieve a THICK triple yarn for a coat .

              I used this yarn for a sweater. The color faded a lot after i washed it...needless to say I would never buy this yarn again. I wish I had quit knitting with it as it bled unto needles and my hands. Why wasn't the dye set??

                    I have used this yarn for both scarves and sweaters, and I love the stuff! It's good quality, comes in lots of nice colors, knits up quickly, has very few knots, and is a pleasure to work with. I know I'll be using more of it in the future.
