Cascade 220 - Dark Grey Medium Grey Tweed (9402) - 100g - Product Description
Cascade 220 is the most popular yarn on Ravelry, and with good reason! Available in over 200 different shades, Cascade 220 is a beautifully soft 100% Peruvian Highland Wool yarn, supplied in 100g hanks that run 220 yards (200m), and at a very affordable price.
Cascade 220 is easy to work with, knits up evenly, blocks well, and is warm without being too bulky. A fantastic multi-purpose yarn, used for garments, toys and accessories, and popular with both knitters and crocheters. Cascade 220 is also a very popular yarn for felting – a quick search of the tens of thousands of projects on Ravelry will demonstrate the true versatility of this yarn!
Cascade 220 is hand wash only, but if you’re looking for yarn that’s machine washable and easy to care for, Cascade have the answer in the form of the Cascade 220 Superwash yarn!
As one of the largest stockists of Cascade yarn in the UK, we stock every single colour and shade of Cascade 220 that Cascade produce. The chances are that if there's a shade of Cascade 220 that we don't have, it is because Cascade have stopped making it, or are awaiting a new delivery! Supplied in 100g hanks, Cascade 220 knits to a gauge of 18 stitches over 20 rows on 4.5 or 5mm needles, and there are approximately 200m / 220yds in every 100g hank.
Cascade themselves offer a range of free patterns on their website, and Ravelry is awash with free patterns designed for Cascade 220.
Please note: This yarn is supplied in a hank. You need to wind hanks into a ball before you can use them. If you try to use with the yarn in hank form, you’ll quickly end up with a tangled mess.
