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:

So far I've used this to make fingerless mitts and a generous swatch for a couple of sweaters I'm planning. I loved how it turned out and I can't wait to make the actual sweaters. It does tend to split a little bit, but usually when I'm not really paying attention to what I'm doing, but this will make a good sweater to use in the climate we live in.

      This was my first time knitting with 220 Sport by Cascade. Lovely yarn to knit with and very soft for a wool. I knit an Ombre Slouchy Hat with this yarn and it turned out very nicely. I combined it with 220 Sport in the Mallard color.

      I was making a pumpkin hat and needed a bright cheery orange color for my 18 months old grandaughter and the yarn split and didn't feel as soft as I wanted it, but the color was just right.

          Nice yarn. Nothing special but it's serving its purpose well. I am making a sweater shawl out of it. Lovely deep color, easy to work with. A little loose on the twist, but that's ok, you just need to watch not to split. Wish I could have afforded the SQ of washable in the same yarn, but alas.

          Great service from WEBS as always. Fast shipping via a trackable method, no problems. Great prices and selection. Website is easy to use, service is great. Thanks.
