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!

    Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash Sport:

    This yarn was specified in a baby blanket pattern. I like the idea of washable yarn for a baby as it will hold up better than acrylic but we know that Mom will need to wash it in the machine! Since I bought online, I had to wind myself and I didn't get the usual tangles half way through that process. Really easy to handle.

      Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash Sport:

      Cascade yarn is one of my favorites. You always get exactly what you expect-good quality, consistent color, and knits beautifully. I hand wash even though it's super wash. I find most super wash yarns still felt a bit. Hand washing makes it last longer and look better.

          I bought the yarn to knit myself a cable sweater. I'm about halfway done and so far am pretty pleased with the yarn. It does have a tendency to split, but it's not so bad it can't be worked with. I haven't washed it uet, but I plan on hand washing just to be safe. I would buy it again, for the price it's hard to find a yarn with the same qualitym

            This is one of my go-to yarns for babies and children because it is merino and washable. The range of colours is really good making it great for colour work.

                    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.
