Cascade Heritage 150 Paints is a huge 150 gram skein of a merino superwash and nylon blend. It is perfect for socks and more. It's fun to watch the colors change as you work with it, and Cascade Heritage 150 Paints creates a lovely look. With 492 yards per skein, it's an economical choice as well. Made Peru.
Produces a soft attractive sock that launders well but I tell my customers that air drying is best. I was disappointed in my last order that #9961 Green Hillside colors were not as depicted and lacked the white and blue I expected from the presentation on line. I find it a very unattractive color for a sock. Also would like to know the ply of the yarns. Service is great and I am glad I found your site.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I knit socks for my husband and two son-in-laws each Christmas. So far I've done 2 pair this year using Cascade Heritage Paints 150, colorway Olympic Forest. In the first pair there was some pooling, but the colorway was so well designed and dyed that it was very harmonious. The quality was very good with consistent strength and size. Every time I took my knitting out to work on, my friends commented on the great looking yarn. Pleasure to knit.
I've used this single-strand for socks, as well as double-strand, and also as the accent heel & toe (solids) to a ragg wool sock. Interestingly this yarn on the heel & toe wore better than the (other mfr's) ragg wool yarn. The colors are simply awesome.
