I used this yarn to knit a fall tunic for my 9-year old. The yarn was not quite as soft as I expected, but is not scratchy. The color, however, is really beautiful and what I specially like about it is that it doesn't knit up striped, but rather with hues, which is pretty.

Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Paints:

I knit the Northstar Hat in shades of blue. The different shades of blue were consistently short throughout, which enhanced the hat's coloration. The Cascade 220 Paints yarn is soft, warm, and has great stitch definition. It's very attractive!

            It's all in the name: 220 (yards, that is) which means I can knit a hat and matching mittens or a generous scarf. Many yarns are priced similarly to Cascade 220 but check that label: half the ysrds!
