Cascade - Cascade 220 Superwash
A Great Go-To Yarn 4 out of 5
I chose this wool for knitting a baby cardigan since babies can be somewhat messy little creatures, I thought a superwash wool would be kinder to Mom in terms of laundering it. While knitting it, I found no knots, uneven splices, or irregularities in the dye saturation. It did seem to get a bit fuzzy during the knitting process, which makes me wonder if it's truly safe to run through the washer and dryer. I think the baby's mom plans to hand-wash the sweater, so in that case I think it will definitely hold up. It's not the softest wool out there, but for the cost, the yardage, and the ease of working with it, I'm sure I'll be using this yarn again in the future!

Cascade - Eco Cloud
A Great Go-To Yarn 5 out of 5
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!
