Cascade 220 Wool Yarn makes the best warm jackets, hats, scarves, everything for warmth. Everyones' favorite 100% Peruvian Wool, the most trusted yarn.
Cascade 220 is neither treated with a solution to remove the scales, or coated to keep them closed. Because of this, 220 wool, has retained its thermal properties. This yarn will keep you warm, yet still allow your skin to breath. Even wet, Cascade 220 will keep you warm, unlike superwash wools. But with that trade off you do need to hand wash this yarn. Machine washing with agitation, temperature changes and ph imbalances will cause the thermal scales to open and close, ending with a felted project. 220 yarn felts extremely well, and because of that it is one of the most sought after felting yarns. But I love it for jackets, vests, hats and cardigans!

I don't like using blue yarn. Mostly because a lot of blues have grey in them, and I don't like muddy blues. I want a true BLUE. I did not want to try Stratosphere, because it looks a lot like the Cascade blue yarn I always get--Blue Velvet?? It's the color of Cookie Monster, which is great most of the time. But I wanted something with a little oomph. It's exactly what I hoped I was getting. I love it!
