    I discovered this yarn a year ago. It offers excellent yardage for the price. Stitch definition is crisp and clear. I combined it with a sequin carry along thread to make a shawlette in garter stitch with a crochet border and only used two skeins. This is definitely one of my new "go to" yarns.

    I was so disappointed when this yarn arrived. Ocean Mix, Cascade.
    On your site it appeared to be streaked with Aqua and much more subtle colors. What I got was a garish turquoise that is very sharp with streaks of white running through it. I was so looking forward to getting it and when it came it was a super let down.

    Firs time disappointed with your merchandise, or let me say, your depiction of the merchandise.

                  Used it in a felted hat. Great thing is the way it holds the stitch beautifully. I love my ADDI needles with wool so whenever a stitch slipped off, it held its shape nicely. Knitting was a pleasure due to the ease of handling and the yarn didn't split easily, as is the case with other brands. I Love Cascade 220 yarns! I did need to use lotion to keep it from dragging thru my fingers, But overall A+ Yarn and knitting experience!

                      I made skirt from this yarn. Patterns depends on number of loops, so if knit big items like sweaters you may end up with little mess :) Good for small projects and decorative parts.

                      Cascade paints is just like cascade 220; I wish it was superwash but still has the cascade sturdiness and quality I expected. The color variation is quite pretty and keeps you interested.

                      I used the yarn to make a sweater and I hope that with washing it gets softer. The yarn is very pretty but it's not soft at all.

                            On your site it appeared to be streaked with Aqua and much more subtle colors. What I got was a garish turquoise that is very sharp with streaks of white running through it. I was so looking forward to getting it and when it came it was a super let down.

                                      Cascade is a first-rate product. I appreciate the fact that I have not run across any knots or flaws in any of the dozens of skeins I have used!
