Overall Cascade 220 Fingering Rating: 4.4 out of 5 stars (4.4 based on 34 reviews)

Hanks for a Great Yarn! 4 out of 5 stars (4 out of 5)
To begin, that wasn't a typo in my subject line. I am in the process of experimenting with various felting techniques and one of my current projects is a colorful, felted, patchwork duvet cover. After experimenting with different weights of felt-able wool, I found that fingering weight perfectly suited my needs. Unfortunately, the advent of Superwash wools has made it more difficult to find wool that felts, particularly in fingering weight. Cascade 220 has perfectly suited my duvet cover's needs. I like the texture and the large color selection, and I love that it does not tangle as readily as other felting wools. If only it came in either skein or donut my personal favorite form, I would give it a resounding five stars. Though I own a great electric ball winder and an older hand winder, I doubt I will ever be a fan of hanks, particularly considering that hanks, though cheaper and less time consuming to produce, are rarely less costly, and I end up using valuable time unwinding.

It's okay 4 out of 5 stars (4 out of 5)
I know this is a popular yarn and the price is good. I prefer Madelinetosh but there's nothing wrong with this one, just not as much fun to work with.

Perfect 100% wool for dyeing!! 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I like to dye my own yarn, and this particular yarn is perfect for hats, gloves, scarves...in fact, any project where smaller amounts of colour would be used.

Very nice! 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
The colors I purchased were perfect jewel tones. I like the extra yardage for the price. And it has a little more twist than some other fingering yarns leading to less split stitches.

Great product 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
Nice fingering weight yarn. Tends to be on the scratchy side, but great for stuffed animals.

Nice 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I like this yarn very much. The grape jelly color is perfect for the project I am working on. It is hard to match colors on line especially all the purples. This is knitting into a very nice shawl.

I bought charcoal and the colour was lighter than I expected, but still a rich grey.
