Overall Deluxe Worsted Superwash Rating: 3.8 out of 5 stars (3.8 based on 4 reviews)

On Par with 220 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
This is a work horse yarn much like Cascade 220. If you like 220, you should like this yarn. Universal also has a nice palate of colors from which to choose. This is an affordable yarn. If you like to felt wool, this yarn felts well. This is a good economical choice for a go to yarn.

Pretty solid yarn 4 out of 5 stars (4 out of 5)
The colors were a bit off, but they're totally fine and I expect a degree of inaccuracy with ordering products online. The wool itself is cushy to work with and amazingly resilientâ€I had to restart an afghan three times, and the yarn held up well to all the rigor.

A Pleasure 4 out of 5 stars (4 out of 5)
I've done a hat double stranded with this wool. Wool has a nice feel and workability. Barring individual monitor color shifting, I found Orangesicle, Nectarine, and Terra Cotta all pretty close to what's presented. As I said in the title, a pleasure to work with. I'm ordering more in various shades.

Not really a red 2 out of 5 stars (2 out of 5)
Color name very misleading. Christmas Red is more of an orange red rather than a true red
