I just knitted a sweater jacket for a one year old. Knitted well and looks great. I think it will be great for him this fall and winter. The yarn does tend to unravel on the cut ends while you are working it.
Did not give it 5 stars as I haven't seen it washed and dried.

I liked this yarn, but I didn't love it. I used it to make my husband a scarf and hat, and it grew a bit more than I anticipated (even after washing the gauge swatch). It does, for the most part, shrink back up in the dryer but it also looks used--too much halo--and tired after soaking, drying and blocking. I'm disappointed and unlikely to use it again.

      Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash Aran:

      I first purchased this yarn three summers ago to make a baby blanket for my daughter. I loved it, and purchased more to make blanket for my niece. And when a friend announced her pregnancy, I bought more to make a blanket for her. It's so soft, and machine washable, so it's perfect for a baby blanket.

        Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash Aran:

        I did my first pair of kilt socks with the same brand for a friend, who had selected the yarn himself. It is lovely to work with. It is too heavy for regular socks, but perfect for kilt socks, once called "the oatmeal of the sock world". I actually bought yarn from 2 places because I am playing with a 2-tone pattern, and neither place had both colors. Both arrived the same day and cost the same.

              I am making matching sweaters for two of my grandsons( brothers).
              The weight is perfect for the pattern: a Norwegian Fisherman pattern I have had for 40 years!
              Perfect weight, knitting at 4 sts to the inch on # 9 needles.
              Very happy with this yarn. I will use again for myself and other children's garments.

                  I made a hat for a friend. It worked up quickly, and mistakes were obvious, making them easy to spot and fix. I liked the colors and that it could be machine washed. Always adore merino.I would buy this again many times over.

                      I'm making the Cable Wrap shawl/shrug pattern for my sister. I'm only about halfway through the project, so I don't yet know how it will block or look when worn, but the yarn is lovely to work with and to look at. I have very high hopes for a delighted sister!
