Cascade 220 Yarn
A widely-used felting yarn, this yarn is made of 100% Peruvian Highland wool and is sometimes compared to Plymouth Galway Worsted yarn. Some people find the yarn difficult to felt and recommend it for projects when the felter wants the stitches to remain visible, but others find that it felts normally. The yarn is also a little more difficult to use, since it comes in hanks that should be re-wound, and its important to avoid any of the superwash versions of this yarn. At the same time, the yarn has one of the largest color selections available with over 150 colors and a sturdy mid-weight feel. Like the name suggests, Cascade 220 comes in 220-yard skeins and usually comes at a reasonable price for good-quality wool.
