Anyone know of any yarn that is like Cascade 220 but washable? I LOVE Cascade 220, but I'm making a hat for my brother who doesn't do hand-washing.

Cascade 220 is a heavy worsted...wasn't sure if anything from knitpicks would work.

Thankeee!

:knitting:

Thanks folks! I'm such a moron! :aww: I meant Cascade 109...(the bulkier weight)

I'll check out their site.

brown sheep has their 'lambs pride superwash bulky', dream in color 'fatty', lion brand 'wool-ease chunky', patons 'beehive shetland' and 'shetland chunky' ...

Wishing that knitpicks would come out with something similar :( - well, guess it's time to break out the credit card for some on-line shoppin!
