Cascade 220 Sport is one of my favorite wool yarns. A two ply construction provides enough body for a sophisticated fabric at a variety of gauges, and it is just perfect for color-work projects big or small. This week we will have a huge selection of this terrific yarn in stock, and as it's also a perfect transitional weight, consider a late winter/early spring project in one or more(!) of the dozens of colors we stock.
We have featured several classes and workshops over the past year using the amazing palette of colors in both simple and complex Fair Isle and Latvian patterns. I recommend this yarn very highly. We are currently teaching a sweater class using this yarn for Kate Davies' beautiful, structured cardigan the 'Deco.' The sweaters are coming along beautifully without exception.
