I used this yarn to crochet a very heavy, warm afghan and I'm very pleased with the finished project. I think it is perfect for home items such as afghans, pillows, stuffed toys, etc., but I don't know if I would like it for garments. It does feel soft in the skein but you can feel the acrylic as it's being worked up. That's fine for home items but not so fine for something next to the skin. Perhaps someone else can testify to its use in clothing.
I used 13 skeins for a throw sized afghan worked up in a woven stitch on a K hook. It's heavy, but I really like it. Out of the 13 skeins, 2 had a single knot - not bad at all. The yarn itself was evenly dense, was not splitty, and had a even color throughout.
To sum it up, I think this an excellent yarn for your home craft items.
Purchased this yarn for a shawlette and hat for my daughter. Soft enough to wear next to the skin and has good stitch definition. I would purchase this yarn again without hesitation. I wish, however, that Cascade would take the 220 out of the name. I assumed it had 220 yarns like their worsted weight, but it only has 136 yarns forcing me to quickly order 2 more skeins and pay a second shipping.
Purchased this in the lima colorway to knit up a vest for my father-in-law. I really like the color for a man. The yarn in yummy soft and is knitting up beautifully. Every easy on the hand. The only problem I'm having (if it's a problem) is that the yarn's chain construction makes cabling difficult. It has forced me to use a cable needle which I hate because it slows me down.
