    Absolutely no complaints about this beautiful yarn. Soooo soft to the touch and knit up beautifully on size 10 and size 11 circular Addi Turbos. Used it for a cowl and the 10 needle produced a more dense fabric, while the 11 had more drape, but still plenty of coverage. Could easily see knitting this on size 13s as well for a cowl or scarf. Believe the size 11s are best bet for a sweater or clothing article, even though the label calls for size 10. This is another great aspect of the yarn -- definitely quality and not skimpy in the gauge department like so many other yarns can be. The colors are to die for. I selected the dark olive green and it is rich and very evenly dyed. I will definitely buy this yarn again and again. Can use it for babies and next to the skin items and would recommend "gentle" washing so as not to interfere with its incredibly soft hand for a 100% wool.

    LOVE IT!!

    I am finding this yarn very perplexing. It is super soft for basic wool which I was very excited about. yet now that I am knitting with it I am not as fond. I am a very experienced knitter and yet I cannot get even stitches with this. Maybe it is because I am using wooden needles and should be using metal? Wondering if better slip would prevent the stiches from looking so wonky. I think I am going to have to rip out the sweater that I started a week ago. I bought it in ecru so the stitches show up very clearly. So mad that they look twisty and weird! I think that some of it is because this is not a single ply. who knows. not sure when and if I will buy more of this.... they have lovely colors and I would like to see if I can get around this stitch evenness problem by using addi turbos or something.

          I used Navy and Cream to make a double knit scarf. I used every bit of both. It turned out to be about 52 inches long and 7 or 8 inches wide, I added fringe, but not much, and gave it away, so I don't know if the Navy will run when washed, just don't know.

                  Currently using this to make cowls using 2 skeins. Cast on 157 stitches with US#10.5 needles and join to work in the round. Work in seed stitch - knit one purl one - until almost out of yarn and bind off very loosely or with a larger size needle.

                    I used this yarn to make some newborn pants actually and it was wonderful. I'm fairly new to knitting but it semeed to knit up smaller than a typical bulky yarn, but keeping thatin mind and switchingmy needles I was able to use it to make an adorable set. This yarn was extrememly soft and didn't unravel for me at all.

                      I knitted myself a scarf with this yarn and liked it so much that I bought a second batch and knitted a scarf as a gift for a friend. She loved it!

                      This is a lovely, easy-care bulky yarn. It comes in good colors, it's soft, and it knits up quickly and easily. The stitch definition is very good.

                      Highly recommended.

                        I used Cascade 128 Superwash to quickly knit up some hooded cowls as Christmas presents for my mom and sister. They received them just before the dread "polar vortex" and love them! Super soft, warm, and knits up quickly! Next project: a sweater for their dog!
