I've make more slouch hats out of this than I can count. Great stitch definition, great drape, & extremely soft. Plus so many beautiful colors to choose from! The only reason I give it 4 stars out of 5 is that it is incorrectly labeled a 'worsted' weight. It is not even a 'light worsted', it is a full on DK weight so buy accordingly.

This was a horribly disappointing yarn. I used two colors of it to knit a very special project that I wanted to be durable and last for years, only to have the yarn start to disintegrate, pill, shrink and shred when the completed project was washed on gentle/warm with a little Woolite and dried on low heat. It was turned into a partially felted, fuzzy, lumpy mess that was beyond salvaging. I will never use this yarn, or anything else from Cascade, again.

    Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash:

    I knit a school colors hat for young man going off to college. I used royal purple, daffodil yellow and charcoal grey. The yarn knitted up well, no breaks in the yarn skeins I used. The daffodil yellow was more muted than I expected. The product was soft and appreciated by the recipient and his mom.

          A friend recommended the Cascade yarn when I wanted to knit a Milk Run Shawl. I know simple knitting being self taught as a teenager. This yarn was wonderful to work with. Mistakes can be removed and corrected easily. It feels great in your hand. Knits very fast as there is hardly any separation of fibers. This is going to be my "go-to" yarn.

              I ordered this wool to make a Fairisle style sweater for my grandson. I have not done such a pattern before. I had to unravel it after about 40 rows. The yarn is very forgiving. I like how well it knits up--both in same color ribbing and in the pattern. Looks really good.
              I am delighted that it is machine washable!

                This is the first time I have knit with Cascade 220 Superwash. I love way it knits up. It is very soft, just perfect for a seven-year-old boy's sweater. My one comment is I think the weight of the yarn is a bit light to be considered worsted. To me, it's more of a DK weight.

                    I used the Superwash for a baby afghan for a newly married couple that were expecting their first baby. They live in Minot ND where the winters can be brutally cold. I wanted something warm and the Superwash is great! Delivery of the yarn was quick and I will definitely use this company again! Cathy
