(The major detriment is that I'm always tempted to add to my stash, end up buying against my better judgement and not using as quickly as I had intended or on the original project I had intended! I often am intending to make a major item such as a sweater then breaking it up into a scarf because it is quicker to have.) The product received is always as described, usually even the colors shown are as close to reality as it would seem possible. The texture is great, etc., and obviously not an item rejected by poor manufacture, or rejected for other poor quality and thrown into the online market because it can't be seen individually at time of purchase.

Actual color s nothing like I thought

The colors show on the page were very deceptive...not even close to what I was expecting...very disappointed.

        I knit for charity in the Detroit area. Mostly the homeless who live on the streets. They are so very appreciative of our groups' knitting up warm hats, gloves & scarves for winter use.

              I've used this product for a pullover sweater and was impressed at how it softened when washed but the cables still popped.

                Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Discontinued Colors:

                I am knitting a cabled sweater from Knitter's magazine. The yarn is an off white and pink blend and the cables pop nicely. I always buy one skein more then I think I will need when buying discontinued colors.

                  Bought it on sale as the color is discontinued. Color is lovely and so is yarn. Good yardage, so far no knots or slubs in the 2 skeins I've wound. Would consider using this one again.
