I just knitted a sweater jacket for a one year old. Knitted well and looks great. I think it will be great for him this fall and winter. The yarn does tend to unravel on the cut ends while you are working it.
Did not give it 5 stars as I haven't seen it washed and dried.

I liked this yarn, but I didn't love it. I used it to make my husband a scarf and hat, and it grew a bit more than I anticipated (even after washing the gauge swatch). It does, for the most part, shrink back up in the dryer but it also looks used--too much halo--and tired after soaking, drying and blocking. I'm disappointed and unlikely to use it again.

      I'm making a baby blanket with cables. The color is even and the weight is perfect to make the cables pop. I would use this product again.

              This was a reasonable priced aran weight yarn in super-wash merino. I was a better choice than a number of other yarns I researched. The Webs discount brought the total cost to quite rational.

                Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash Aran:

                Made 2 hats for charity out of the 2 skeins I bought. Yarn is nice and soft, true Aran weight, yardage is good. However in 2/2 skeins there were defects-- knots (more than one) and slubs. The hat pattern (required) makes a reversible hat, so I had to be creative about rejoining the yarn ends (you cannot splice superwash yarn).
                Will think twice about repurchasing this one.
