Good yardage for the price, but is not colorfast. 2 out of 5 (2 out of 5)
Positives_Good yardage for the price and easy to knit with it! One negative_Some of the Cascade 220 yarns I have worked with, especially 7828 Neon Yellow, are NOT colorfast, and have the potential to bleed. This problem was not noticeable with a practice swatch in cold water, however, when I hand blocked my recently finished Neon Yellow and White baby blanket Churchmouse Garter Blocks Baby Blanket pattern using cold water, the knitted fabric suffered from yellow dye bleeding onto some of the white squares :-
