Silky soft Cascade Forest Hills is a silk and merino wool blend yarn with a lovely, slight sheen. Forest Hills is a fingering weight yarn that comes in gorgeous solid colors - and generous yardage in each ball (785!) - will be plenty for a lacy shawl or wrap. This yarn is an easy choice - the hard part will be which color to choose! Made in China

This is a gorgeous yarn, great texture, easy to work with, and you get a lot of yardage for the money. I made a tunisian crochet shawl and really couldn't be happier with the end product. You need to be a little careful if you have to rip anything back as it's a little fuzzy, but overall it was very easy to work with. I took off one star for the irregularities, but overall I'd be happy to use this yarn again. The ivory color is about perfect, incidentally, not too white, not too yellow.

    Comments about 20.00 Forest Hills:

    I was pleasantly surprised at this yarn. I bought it for the color and great yardage. It knit up well and did not split. The silk lends a beautiful sheen and it is incredibly soft with a nice drape. I would say that it is a very light weight of fingering and seemed to really be closer to a heavy lace weight.

            Comments about 20.00 Forest Hills:

            I bought this specifically for shawls, and it has not disappointed me. I did a test piece, with 5,7 & 9 loop nupps. The nupps were consistently perfect and very easy to execute. I just finished a shawl with an Estonian lace border. This yarn blocks nicely, and the nupps stay in place. The colors are lovely, vibrant. My one criticism is that occasionally there was a fuzzy clump on the strand. But I was able to remove them easily and continue.

                I purchased 1 to use for a test knit of a lace shawl The yarn was perfect and the test knit turned out beautiful. I found nothing wrong with this yarn and would easily use it in the future. I wore the shawl to visit hubby's 99 year old Ausnt Cuba and I decided to let it live with her. So I must make myself another one.

                  I'm using this for a lace cardigan, and I love the fabric I'm getting, and the stitch definition. It is a "sticky" yarn, so it knots itself if you aren't careful, but I will definitely use it again. Especially since it is such a great price!

                  i started making an estonian style lace shawl with nupps ... i tried to make the nupps so many times, but the yarn would not tighten up and hold the nupp. also, in the first 6" of knitting i found 2 occurrences where the yarn thickened to twice the width.
