My problem was not yarn, but interface--making a fine selection of color online was a waste of time. Neither color I bought looked like the photo--I know there is a difference in monitors so I checked out color on two machines. Still, a big discrepancy--"Midnight Heather" looks like a medium blue on screen but is actually very dark like... midnight. (I took a chance I'd get what I was looking at, but should have believed the name.) "Turquoise Pebble" is much greener than turquoise. Settled for rather than hassle a return, but a little annoyed. Not sure I'd buy from the site again. If I had a picture, I'd upload it.

    Comments about Cascade Yarns 220:

    This is my go-to for any felting project. When I need crayon box colors for a fun project, no one comes close to the choices available in Cascade 220. It's a great value - I never feel like I bought an inferior product - no snags, no unevenness.

    Comments about Cascade Yarns 220:

    This is a less expensive and very versatile yarn, you can make hats, scarves, toys and gloves with it and it knits up beautifully. I do not make sweaters and socks so I cannot vouch for them in that aspect. If you are felting the yarn felts nicely in the machine. Its my go-to yarn for most everday things that do not need to machine washable. I love it.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Delivery took a bit, but i suspect that was due to the sale going on, and since I ordered a large amount last year during the cascade sale as well it was expected for the delivery to take about 4 weeks. But it was an awesome sale and worth the wait.

        I enjoy using Cascade 220 for sweaters, socks and vests. It knits up nicely and there are a great variety of colors ( I particularly like the heathers). It doesn't pill badly and washes easily.

          I purchased a knitting book that highlighted felted purses to make. I picked a pattern out of the book and Cascade 220 Worsted Wool was recommend as the yarn to use. Fantastic yarn and great advice for making purses. I tried to cut expenses by purchasing a less expensive wool and I paid dearly!!!! Don't scrimp on the wool you use when making felted anything. Cascade 220 is the best!!!!

              Nice to knit with, not the softest yarn but average. I'm knitting a sweater, so far looks great.
              The color (lichen) is more beautifull than the picture, all the undertones make this yarn more interesting.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Great customers service. I'm in Israel and the package arrived just one week after purchase, that's fast!

                  This is the first time I am using cascade 220. I am making a sweater . The yarn is very nice to work with, the garment feels very nice & soft. I am hoping it will hand wash well, and hold up without pilling.
                  Not quite done, sleeves and finishing work to be completed.
                  Delivery time was good, color as I expected from ad, nice sale price as well.

                  I'm using this product for a crocheted sweater. It has fabulous stitch definition for the pattern. The yarn is not terribly soft, but not exactly coarse...to be expected with a 100% wool. It works up wonderfully and beautifully. Would definitely recommend to others...
