I've make more slouch hats out of this than I can count. Great stitch definition, great drape, & extremely soft. Plus so many beautiful colors to choose from! The only reason I give it 4 stars out of 5 is that it is incorrectly labeled a 'worsted' weight. It is not even a 'light worsted', it is a full on DK weight so buy accordingly.

This was a horribly disappointing yarn. I used two colors of it to knit a very special project that I wanted to be durable and last for years, only to have the yarn start to disintegrate, pill, shrink and shred when the completed project was washed on gentle/warm with a little Woolite and dried on low heat. It was turned into a partially felted, fuzzy, lumpy mess that was beyond salvaging. I will never use this yarn, or anything else from Cascade, again.

I love the colors, however, after making some baby blankets (good stitch definition) and washing and drying them gently, I was disappointed with the shedding and pilling.

            Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash:

            I used it for a vest that was knit holding the yarn double on large needles. I wanted to make a practical vest and opted for knitting with the yarn held double because the Cascade 220 Superwash was a more practical, washable yarn than most of the thicker yarns I would have had to use had otherwise.

                I wanted to graduate from acryliic yarn to wool for Grandchikdren. This yarn is a big disappointment. The garments made with it are unwearable after one or two washings.
