So Soft! 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
This is a great heavy worsted yarn. It's a little springy but holds it shape well. And did I mention that it's so soft? Great for sweaters and baby things.

Ohhh my 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
At first I was a little taken back by the braided look of the yarn as I had not used any like that. I made a beautiful pair of fingerless mitts. I do not even notice the braiding, and the feel of my mitts, were great. This yarn is so soft, now I know why they call it cloud. If you try this yarn, you will not be sorry.

I agree that the colors are hard to capture--they are very subtle/natural. But, that's not the yarn's fault and the yarn fully deserves a five-star rating, despite whatever issues JBW might have had with photographing the colors accurately :D. I knitted a baby blanket with this and found the colorway (#1808) to be absolutely mesmerizing. The yarn is amazingly soft and beautifully showed off both the lace and cable motifs of the blanket. I will definitely be using this yarn again!

Feels luscious 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
I ordered a skein of this to see what it was like. I bought a skein of #1804 based on the way it appeared in the Patterns for it on Cascade website, and NOT what it looks like on either JB or Cascade's website showing the yarn. It is a nice neutral light brown like it appears in the patterns and I love it! It feels luscious. I haven't knitted with it yet but as soon as I do I will post more. Some one on Ravelry said it was like Lima but I disagree, I don't like lima, it doesn't show the stitches and it is fuzzy; this is not. If it works gauge wise etc; I am thinking of it for the Starsky cardigan. Will report back later.
