Overall Cascade 220 Superwash Rating: 4.7 out of 5 (4.7 based on 171 reviews)

Hunter Orange 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
I needed to make a bright, warm, easily cleaned balaclava for my husband to wear while using the tractor to clear snow from our 1/4-mile-long driveway during this endless winter. The color is a hunter orange and the weight is slightly less than worsted but a uniform twist, easy to knit, warm and washable. It worked so well that I made one for myself, too.

A favorite 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
This is a great staple yarn. I'm a crocheter of blankets, and use this all the time. Very soft, smooth, consistent. Love the colors.

really a sport/baby weight yarn 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
This is a lovely yarn to work with, but the weight description isn't accurate. It is more reliably described as #2--sport/baby weight yarn.

Beautifully soft and washable too! 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
I bought several skeins in pink for chemo caps - what a good choice! Soft, warm and washable - the perfect combination for someone going thru the challenges of chemotherapy!

I was surprised by how stretchy the yarn is, and it is a light worsted/DK weight.
