Cascade 220 Superwash Wool Yarn description:
Silky soft and superwash! Your care worries are over, because the durable feature of this yarn will make your colorful projects “oh-so-practical” for babies, children, teens and adults. The fiber is treated by smoothing the scales to prevent felting rather than coating the barbs, making this a lifetime superwash protection and not a temporary fix that wears off over time. Knits to a DK gauge.
Weavers: This is a perfect non-fulling pattern weft for home furnishings project.
Mail order from Halcyon Yarn is quick and accurate. One thing I especially like about Halcyon's shipping is that they use as little packing material as possible, with little to no plastic (and, of course, none of those annoying styrofoam peanuts!). When I ordered a number of different colored wool yarn cones, they carefully placed the white one in a plastic bag so it would not pick up color from the others. Halcyon workers are thoughtful and knowledgeable about fiber arts -- and always a pleasure to speak with by phone!
