Cascade 220 Superwash is a staple in our projects bags for knitting and crocheting! This light worsted/DK yarn is crafted from 100% Superwash Peruvian Highland Wool, meaning it's machine washable, making it great for all ages and skill levels. Seriously, nothing is better than finishing a project and being able to toss it in the wash! This easy-care yarn is perfect for all sorts of projects, from kids' accessories to cardigans, gloves, hats and even a tote bag, the potential projects are endless! It's offered in an incredible color palette featuring both solid and heathered colorways, too.
Do you know why it's called 220 Superwash? It gets its name from the generous 220 yards it has to play with as well as being the superwash sister of the original Cascade 220! This, paired with a delightful range of shades, makes this the perfect yarn to use for most all projects!
