    Love the colors!

    It,s very soft! Colors are beautiful. It is too fine. I would like a heavier yarn.

        I am using this yarn for a ribbed sweater pattern. I wasn't sure how the variegated coloring would look in the 4 stockinette st X 2 garter st rib. I am very pleased with the results.

              Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Quatro:

              I use this for mittens mostly, and I love the red and purple colorways. Each ply is different shade of the main color (hence the name "Quatro"). Some combinations work better than others. When there's a stark contrast among the four shades, I think it is less effective. All in all, another great Cascade product. Sadly, it's been discontinued and Webs doesn't have too much left (perhaps because I bought it all). Get it while you can.

              I knitted a yarn bowl out of this yarn. It felted quickly and produced a smooth finish to the bowl.

                Bought this to create some felted animals for an art show in August. Hand-felting is a pain, but it works, and the Quattro is gorgeous when it's felted because of the way the colors are plied. Great yarn!

                  Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Quatro:

                  I made a pair of fingerless gloves with a very nice cabled pattern. The cables really shine through with this yarn and they look great when worn. It's lighter than your usual worsted, but didn't cause any issues with my project. Will use again!

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Living in AK, I'm used to shipping being more costly but usually the speed remains the same - slow. I received my shipment within days, which is astounding. Originally from Western MA, my family's packages don't even make it here that fast!

                    I purchased the marled green combination and found this yarn to be itchy. Could it have something to do with the dyes? I've heard this can affect the yarn feel. That being said it can still be used over clothes but not directly next to skin.

                      The child's sweater I made with this yarn turned out soft, lightweight, and holds its shape well. The stockinette portion has a little texture and the few cables are well defined. I would definitely consider this yarn again for the next sweater.

                          This is my first felting project--a knitting bag. The yarn has been wonderful to work with--smooth and even. The bag is looking great... I ALMOST hate felting it, but I will go on with my original plan.
