Cascade 220 has been changed- it has something to do with the processing, spinning etc and the company won't explain what has happened. The new style skeins have a dyelot number with 5 numbers and a alpha letter (see example below) vs the old style which had 4 numbers. Since November 2014, it almost impossible to find enough old style (the one with 4 numericals in the dyelot number) to make a sweater. Initially I found the yarn felt different - something to do with the spinning/ plying. It feels like a harder yarn in the hand. There is less loft than old Cascade and it is coarser.

12-30-14: I bought at Webs Cascade 220 (regular not superwash) #4010 (Straw) Dyelot 2K3548, which is the new style yarn - dyelot new style. I swatched it flat on #4 needle and carefully recorded the st ct: on #4 needle I got 25 sts over 4," or 6.25 st/in unblocked. I like to downgauge a little knowing that blocking makes it grow and I like a tighter fabric. I made a cardi in Cascade old style that came out at 5.8 st/in and it is perfect. I have worked up the first skein for the new project - about 4" long, so time for a gauge check.

Unblocked, now getting 25 st over 4" or 6.25 st/in. I blocked a corner of the sweater using my usual method of warm water sponged on, blotted and patted down and let dry.

IT SHRUNK!!!! The 25 st area marked off with thin scrap wool, now measures 3-3/4" which is 6.66 st/in. HOW CAN THIS BE??!!! In all my experience with wool yarn, blocking relaxes the wool and makes it expand. I've never seen it shrink. This means over 308 st the chest measurement will be 46" instead of 49."

WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO CASCADE 220?????

The perfect yarn!

Comments about Cascade Yarns 220:

If you need this weight of yarn, then buy the Cascade 220! I have knitted up MANY skeins of this yarn and have yet to find a knot. You end up with a sturdy, warm and beautiful item. My knitting style lends itself to frequent splits but not with this yarn! The colors are rich and saturated. I made a log cabin blanket for my daughter that lives in Boston and she loves loves all the colors and stays very warm!

          I love Cascade yarns in both worsted and DK weights, and superwash or regular. They are soft, easy to work with, come in a wide range of beautiful colors, and are reasonably priced. I'm always happy with the quality of the finished product.

            I swear by Cascade 220 for all my felted bag projects. The stitches stay well defined through the felting process. This yarn is soft on the hands when knitting and the available colors are just beautiful - including shades within the color spectrum.

                  Comments about Cascade Yarns 220:

                  This is a good consistent yarn for fair isle work. Lots of colors are available in the same weight! It's not as rough or coarse as some of the other wools I've seen recommended for color work, but to me, that's a good thing. It knits up fast and has a good consistent texture throughout the work when you are finished. Stitches don't "disappear" with tension mistakes as much/readily as with smaller yarns.
