I've make more slouch hats out of this than I can count. Great stitch definition, great drape, & extremely soft. Plus so many beautiful colors to choose from! The only reason I give it 4 stars out of 5 is that it is incorrectly labeled a 'worsted' weight. It is not even a 'light worsted', it is a full on DK weight so buy accordingly.

This was a horribly disappointing yarn. I used two colors of it to knit a very special project that I wanted to be durable and last for years, only to have the yarn start to disintegrate, pill, shrink and shred when the completed project was washed on gentle/warm with a little Woolite and dried on low heat. It was turned into a partially felted, fuzzy, lumpy mess that was beyond salvaging. I will never use this yarn, or anything else from Cascade, again.

      I love this yarn. Hand dyed yarns are fun to begin with. This yarn is beautiful, easy to knit with and the colors are sometimes unusual, but great. I a,mjust finishing the Cowl I. The new Noro book and I love it.

      I use it for making sweaters, but I'm sure scarfs or shawls or blankets for baby beds would also work up beautifully.

          Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash:

          I am using this for a baby blanket, but i sort of hate it--I thought I was getting a nice bright, sunny yellow, and it came as a dull gold. I was too anxious to get started to return it (so, my fault), and I know it's hard to represent colors, and particularly yellows--I tried to take a picture of the yarn and the color did not show almost at all! But I really was disappointed.
          This seems like good yarn if you can be sure of the color.

                Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash:

                I love this for sweaters. I have a whole drawer of partial skeins that I use to add colourwork to sweaters. I buy a main colour and generally have everything else I need for animals, florals, snowflakes, etc.

                It has great stitch definition and merino wool is just a joy to knit!

                Unfortunately, I cannot always use it for the grandkids: some of mine do not wear animal products, and the ones who do have busy parents who occasionally put it through a hot dryer by accident which changes its size considerably.

                    I love this yarn! I use it for all my baby blanket projects because it washes up and maintains its shape so well. My Dad also loves the blanket I made for him with the yarn. He says it's toasty warm without being heavy.

                      I bought this wool to make a sweater for my grandson. It needed to be soft and easy to knit. Also, he is very particular about color, and 220 Superwash has wonderful colors. The yarn is smooth, soft, and easy to knit. Also, I want to make a Granny Square Afghan, and this yarn is just the best for its quality and softness.
