We really enjoy working with this company. They give us early announcements of new lines, so we can have everything ready to go when the gorgeous new colors and fibers arrive. We sometimes drive our poor Webmistress to distraction trying to keep up with new arrivals.
They understand all of us, we knitters, crocheters, felters and artists. They have been listening to our requests for years and years. They know we need dependable quality, strength and of course, a whole bunch of colors.
Cascade knitting yarn also comes in silk, cotton and Cascade 220 superwash yarns, and many other wonderful yarns to tempt everyone from the newest to the most experienced knitter.
When you are new to these crafts, all the bits and pieces are confusing. We recommend you learn your way around with dependable, economical strands such as the 220 yarn.
