I am making a series of neck warmers as gifts. The pattern calls for sport weight, which I hadn't really used too much prior to this project. I have been delighted with the elegant appearance of the heathers and also the warmth of this yarn. Having usually used worsted weight, the warmth of this weight wool has surprised and delighted me.

I don't normally use sport weight yarns, so I wasn't sure what to expect from this one. But if you like Cascade 220, and just need a lighter weight for a specific project, you'll like this. Like its worsted namesake, it's a good value, a very servicable yarn for items that don't require frequent wahing (unless you just like hand-washing -- I don't). I'd prefer a superwash variant of it for most things I suspect.

I haven't used it in any felted projects to date, but have used other Cascade wool for such things and always been pleased with the results. This yarn would yield a felted fabric not quite so heavy, which might make it even more suitable for some items.

The project I bought this for used 2 strands held together, and the "sturdiness" (for lack of a better word) that gives it its stitch definition made the job of workign with 2 strands much easier than some yarns I've used this way. It also has less of a tendency to come untwisted than other similar yarns I've used. It also seems to be less prone to splitting or shedding than even the worsted Cascade 220.

This is not a "luxury" yarn by any measure, but will give you good results even if you're a relative novice. Overall a very serviceable yarn for knitters of all skill levels.

    Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Sport:

    I have not purchased this yarn before, why, I don't know unless it's just not as exciting as the newer yarns. But once I discovered it I went crazy over it. Made some mittens which turned out perfect. Will buy more in the future. Every color is available, price is right, where has it been all my life? Very happy with it.

        Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Sport:

        I bought this for a felted hat for my wife and didn't realise how WELL it felted up - the first try ended up as a skullcap for a child (a second effort was more successful). Felted, it shrank about 1/3 around and almost 50% in length and made a very soft thick fabric.

          • Bought For Sweater

          Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Sport:

          I purchased this to make a sweater for a guy. It's exactly the right color navy, very very dark. Sad to say, I haven't started so I need to get busy. It feels a little rough-not a lot-I'll know better when I start working with it. I do love the color and weight, it was hard to find a really dark navy. The price was great as the service always is.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Delivery was very quick; it arrived in good condition. I haven't contacted customer service, but in the past they have always been helpful.
