I just knitted a sweater jacket for a one year old. Knitted well and looks great. I think it will be great for him this fall and winter. The yarn does tend to unravel on the cut ends while you are working it.
Did not give it 5 stars as I haven't seen it washed and dried.

I liked this yarn, but I didn't love it. I used it to make my husband a scarf and hat, and it grew a bit more than I anticipated (even after washing the gauge swatch). It does, for the most part, shrink back up in the dryer but it also looks used--too much halo--and tired after soaking, drying and blocking. I'm disappointed and unlikely to use it again.

    Your website indicated you had 11 red skeins. I ordered 11. You were only able to send 7. Then you never sent the remainder of my order.

      Comments about Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash Aran:

      I am making matching sweaters for two of my grandsons( brothers).
      The weight is perfect for the pattern: a Norwegian Fisherman pattern I have had for 40 years!
      Perfect weight, knitting at 4 sts to the inch on # 9 needles.
      Very happy with this yarn. I will use again for myself and other children's garments.

          I made a hat for a friend. It worked up quickly, and mistakes were obvious, making them easy to spot and fix. I liked the colors and that it could be machine washed. Always adore merino.I would buy this again many times over.

              I'm making the Cable Wrap shawl/shrug pattern for my sister. I'm only about halfway through the project, so I don't yet know how it will block or look when worn, but the yarn is lovely to work with and to look at. I have very high hopes for a delighted sister!

                I used this yarn to make an afghan sampler. Some blocks were lacy, some cables, various patterns. The stitch definition is Wonder! This will make a lovely wedding present.

                  I used for a shawl and fingerless mittens. The shawl stretched a great deal during blocking, so I did not block the mittens.

                  Incredibly soft. I did find a couple of areas that did not have the proper twist and was concerned that the garment may come apart there. Corrected after I knit; should have done before knitting...

                    I am now making my third afghan with this yarn. I love the stitch definition and ease of working with it. I am used to hand dyed yarn, but this cannot be beat for evenness of color.
