          Comments about Cascade Yarns Fixation Effects & Spray Dyed:

          I was given 2 balls of Fixation to make Chemc Caps for a "Knit for the Cure" event. I became entranced with the yarn and REALLY love making those caps! I enjoy using verigated yarns of all kinds as they keep my projects from becoming boring. What else can I make with Fixation???

              I only use it for making headbands. You have to get used to using it. You cannot stretch while using. I have not used for anything else.

                I make headbands for the young girls who have to stay at the hospital for extended periods and cannot have their hair washed due to treatments or maybe they are having chemo. The girls didn't want a hat or something big but making so many headbands all different sizes became unrealistic for us volunteers and for the nurses to try out on each girl needing one. This yarn is perfect. One small size works for them all.

                    Comments about Cascade Yarns Fixation Effects & Spray Dyed:

                    I do crocheting for several different charity groups. The hospital likes headbands for the young girls and teen girls to help deal with "bad hair day" during a hospital stay. Regular yarn requires several closure options to accommodate different sizes. With the fixation yarn I was able to crochet the headband closed and it stretched to fit all sizes! Hooray! No more buttons, ties or elastic. Now I can get more done in a shorter period of time. The icing on this cake is that the colors are wonderful and the yarn has a nice hand. I'll be purchasing much more!

                    Comments about Cascade Yarns Fixation Effects & Spray Dyed:

                    This is a great stretchy yarn and gives a good firm fit for hats, with lots of stretch to put it on. Their description says "just a bit of stretch" but I think it has more stretch than that suggests.

                    I had to knit slower to be sure that I wasn't stretching the yarn as I went.
