This yarn works up nicely on 4.5 to5 mm as a worsted. The colour is a bit more brown than as shown ( photos are not exact) . I’m making hats with hearts with this wine Heather and the cream. Washable, and very warm. Great quality, no slubs or knots , and nice firm twist. Would be great for cable work. A great price, and a nice yarn to work with.
This is a very nice quality yarn, and the red wine heather a beautiful colour. Very nice to work with, gentle on the hands. 100 % washable wool. Will make lovely sweaters, hats, and scarves for the winters we have here.:
I was curious about the superwash feature. I purchased a colour that I thought would be nice and after it arrived in the mail, I commenced knitting and found that the colour was easy to work with and the yarn was as Yarn Canada said, a worsted weight and a fine mixed colour of deep burgundy and reds. I haven't tried washing the sweater yet because it is not finished; but I am looking forward to laundering just to see if the shrinkage is minimal. That is what Cascade advertises and is a long time in the making.
