Having difficulty finding some sport weight, machine washable yarn for sock making on my circular sock knitting machine, I gave this yarn a try. Wow, really nice, soft socks that knitted up with no problems whatsoever. I do not know how well they will wear or if they might pill, but after a couple washes, they seem just fine.

At the same time, I evaluated some Kroy Pattons yarn that was 75% wool, 25% nylon. The Kroy was a lighter, sport weight and the socks were not as soft, though they probably will wear better. I much prefer the Cascade 220 yarn.

I am knitting a cabled sweater and find the yarn very splitty - it is impossible to cable without a needle. When you slip a stitch off the needle it promptly tries to unravel and splits when you try to pick it up. I also have a lot of trouble with splitting the yarn with normal knitting/purling. The color isn't even close to what is shown on the web page - I ordered the 900 Charcoal which is shown as more of a medium gray. The yarn I received is labeled as 900 but the color is closer to the 815 Black. Luckily my son in law likes the color so I didn't have to return it. The yarn is very soft and has nice stitch definition, the fabric looks and feels lovely!

        I've made toddler sweaters and adult sweaters out of this yarn. It is soft, not scratchy and it's great towork with. It doesn't split. It shows up stitches well.

          I have made several baby blankets with the Cascade 220 Sport yarn. The blankets have always turned out so well--the yarn is easy to knit with, has lovely colors to choose from, and is so soft. Best of all, it's washable! It is my go-to yarn for all my baby (Grandbaby :) projects!

            This yarn is just dreamy, smooth and shiny and great color saturation. But with four plies, my cables were a bit tricky, because the four plies were difficult to manage. Granted I cable without a needle and have to pick up live stitches.

              This was listed in the pattern for the baby sweater I was making. It was a perfect choice. It's washable. Then it was SO soft. The only thing I could wish is that it came in hand dyed or variegated type colors. For what it is, it's great.
