I did my research on the cascade website so this colour came in more like I expected it to look and less like the website picture here. Its a beautiful blue with none of the green flecks seen in the picture and a great yarn to work with. I crocheted a cardigan that called for this yarn specifically and turned out amazing!
I bought four skeins of this wool for a sweater I knitted. Once the whole sweater was complete (using all four skeins). I very carefully and lightly hand felted the sweater (as this was the style I was wanting). To my horror, three of the four skeins felted beautifully and one did not. The final outcome was a completely ruined sweater. I am not sure why three skeins would react as expected under the conditions and one would not felt at all, but it seems to me that the fibre content is not consistent when ordering more than one skein at a time. This is the last time I will ever buy Cascade wool again.
Love the colour of this yarn, and all the superwash yarns are fantastic to work with.
