Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash Aran

Cascade's beloved 220 Superwash in an Aran weight. It's the same washable 100% superwash merino wool, only heavier. Since it's machine wash & dry, it's perfect for washable projects that require a heavier weight, such as afghans, blankets, sweaters for kids and mittens! Made in China

      Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash Aran:

      I liked this yarn, but I didn't love it. I used it to make my husband a scarf and hat, and it grew a bit more than I anticipated (even after washing the gauge swatch). It does, for the most part, shrink back up in the dryer but it also looks used--too much halo--and tired after soaking, drying and blocking. I'm disappointed and unlikely to use it again.

        Great yarn!

        I use this for gloves, socks, and scarfs.
        It's soft, knits quick, evenly dyed.

            I use this yarn to make all kinds of accessories for my etsy shop. It's soft and squishy and knits up nicely. It cables beautifully. It is one of my favorites to work with.

              Lovely, soft, heavy washable worsted; great for afghans, throws, leggings, sweaters, scarves.I wish it came in more, and more vibriant colors.

              Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash Aran:

              This yarn is nice and soft, extrememly consistent, and was a joy to work with. I used it to make my first sweater- very nice stitch definition and warm too. However, I've only worn the sweater 2 or 3 times so far and parts of it are already getting a little fuzzy- but I guess some amount of fuzz is to be expected from any yarn.

                This is another great yarn from the Cascade 220 family. I am using it to design a mosaic trim vest which will become my new favorite layering piece this winter!

                  I just knitted a sweater jacket for a one year old. Knitted well and looks great. I think it will be great for him this fall and winter. The yarn does tend to unravel on the cut ends while you are working it.
                  Did not give it 5 stars as I haven't seen it washed and dried.
