Cascade 220 Aran 100% Superwash Merino Wool - Aran 817
This 100% Superwash ( and very soft ) wool is perfect for comfy pullovers (think soft sweatshirt style), hoodies and ideal as well for baby blankets. The colors are bright and pure, and projects knit or crochet up quickly.
Cascade 220 Aran yarn is an exceptionally soft and affordable superwash wool. This is considered a heavy worsted weight and is knit up a US8 or US9 needle with 4-4.5 sts per inch. 220 Aran offers the wool squish with a surprising drape. 220 Superwash® Aran is a fantastic addition to the 220 Superwash® line. This aran weight yarn is thicker than Cascade's traditional 220 Superwash® but not quite as thick as 128 Superwash making it a perfect in between weight.
Try this soft, impeccably plied yarn in big fisherman sweater projects, cowls, hats, mittens or any project that needs a durable 100% wool.
