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.

                  My first online order. Saw the yarn in a knit shop but they didn't have enough so found it on Webs and bought. Service excellent. Realized I didn't have enough and called. Person I talked to rounded up more yarn same dye lot and I received it in a couple of days. I am knitting a sweater to fit someone out of state. Took all measurements there. I didn't want to spend loads of money on this experiment. Thanks.

                    I am using Cascade 220 Sport in a Craftsy class called, "The Fair Isle Vest, Stranded & Steeked," with instructor Mary Jane Mucklestone. This yarn is so much softer than what the class kit provides, and you can save money here with this yarn. Webs has better color choices too. The yarn is hand wash, dry flat. I made about (5) swatches with different colorway combinations so I can eventually choose different colorways for the Vest(s) that I plan to make.

                      Like all cascade yarn the sport weight and colors offered are wonderful. Never a tie to be found. This my first time using sport weight and it is looking grand on my Fair isle sweater. Delivery is always prompt.

                        I'm using this to knit a rectangular lace wrap. The stitch definition is wonderful, and I can't wait until I'm finished and can block it to see the lace stretch out a bit and show the great pattern.
