    Love this yarn for warm weather garments

    This is a lovely warm weather yarn that is next to the skin soft. It dried nicely in the dryer. It knit up very quickly with good stitch definition.

    Soft and Colorful

    NOT Colorfast!! Caution: tie skein multiple times, then rinse in warm vinegar water and then wash (I used Eucalon) and repeat this process until color does not appear in the water....Read complete review

    NOT Colorfast!! Caution: tie skein multiple times, then rinse in warm vinegar water and then wash (I used Eucalon) and repeat this process until color does not appear in the water. Hang to dry. If you don't tie the skein multiple times you will end up with a birdnest. If you don't rinse and wash you will end up with color bleeding. Aside from this, it will make a nice, soft blanket that is not as warm as 100% wool (good for grandson in Florida!)

      Comments about Cascade Yarns Sierra:

      Bought this to knit a cardigan. It is a true worsted, and the blend of cotton/wool is lovely. There was some cabling in the garment I made, and it showed the stitch definition well. Good yardage. The colour did run a little when I wet blocked.

      Service and delivery comments:

      As always, service was exceptional - Webs even went above and beyond when I ran short of yarn and found me two more skeins of the same dye lot!

          The hats and scarves I've made my grandkids get lots of wear and tear and not much care in the wash, but they stand up really well and still look good.

            This is a great yarn in beautiful colors, I love how it crochet's and knits. It makes wonderful market bags, and will by trying to make a top out of it.

                A shame that Cascade has discontinued this yarn. Knits and wears well for kids' garments. Lovely colors. Machine wash and dry with no shrinking.

                    The yarn knits up beautifully. I am allergic to wool, but this cotton wool blend poses no problem for me. The color was a bit different than it appeared online but is very pretty.
