Having difficulty finding some sport weight, machine washable yarn for sock making on my circular sock knitting machine, I gave this yarn a try. Wow, really nice, soft socks that knitted up with no problems whatsoever. I do not know how well they will wear or if they might pill, but after a couple washes, they seem just fine.

At the same time, I evaluated some Kroy Pattons yarn that was 75% wool, 25% nylon. The Kroy was a lighter, sport weight and the socks were not as soft, though they probably will wear better. I much prefer the Cascade 220 yarn.

I am knitting a cabled sweater and find the yarn very splitty - it is impossible to cable without a needle. When you slip a stitch off the needle it promptly tries to unravel and splits when you try to pick it up. I also have a lot of trouble with splitting the yarn with normal knitting/purling. The color isn't even close to what is shown on the web page - I ordered the 900 Charcoal which is shown as more of a medium gray. The yarn I received is labeled as 900 but the color is closer to the 815 Black. Luckily my son in law likes the color so I didn't have to return it. The yarn is very soft and has nice stitch definition, the fabric looks and feels lovely!

            I'm a relatively new knitter and enjoyed working with this yarn. The yarn was available in the bold colors that I needed and was as soft as some of the more expensive sport yarns I had looked at. I knitted a striped hat using a #2 circular needle as I wanted a tight knit with small stiches. Worked well.

                I searched for a couple of weeks for a wool blend (not polyester) in a soft brown color that would be appropriate for a baby blanket. This was the only product that fit those requirements and I am so happy with the wool.

                    Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash Sport:

                    I made a child's sweater out of this, and soaked the pieces for blocking. They stretched like superwash then, which I expected. But when I put the sweater in the washer on delicate and then in the dryer in normal, I ended up with a fuzzy, dense, pill-y sweater about three inches shorter than when it went in. One more wash and it will have felted perfectly... Not what I expected from the care label!

                    Also, the colour 811 (Como blue) is far closer to teal than it looked like on several monitors, but that's comparatively minor.
