220 Superwash Quatro
Four plies of 100% superwash wool in different colors entwine together in Cascade 220 Superwash Quatro, making a beautifully rounded strand which would offer lovely stitch definition. This soft, worsted weight yarn is machine washable and tumble-dryable. Made in China

Quatro knits up at a DK or six-ply sock yarn weight, but a bit springier. The mottled flecks play well with the tones.
I found I didn't like the more prominently mottled colors for cables...but I'm working a lace panel stole in the butterscotch color, and am delighted.
But what I have come to adore it for is weaving on a rigid heddle loom. It makes a nice warp yarn--not too grabby, smooth and springy--with the right handling. It makes a lovely weft yarn. I wove a 1A basic simple plain weave scarf in the Brown Bear (not available here) color, with contrasting panels from an ounce of Opal six-ply sock yarn left over from another project. I get so many compliments on it!
A 100 gram ball has 220 yards, which comes out to about 70 three-yard warp ends, enough for a good length scarf and fringes on both ends. It plays well with a weft in Cascade 220, or in bulkier yarns. I worked up the Antigua color as the weft with a solid sock yarn warp--another incredible winner!

I'm using this yarn in the color brown bear and it's knitting up quite nicely. It feels very warm already, which is good because it's a gift that will soon be on its way to my friend in Norway. The stitch definition is beautiful and although I didn't realize it was DK and not worsted until after it was purchased, it still worked out marvelously. Not quite sure why it hasn't sold very well yet, as it's wonderful. If you're knitting woolen accessories an want high quality and vibrant color, go for this yarn.
