Knitpicks! Swish for mittens and hats, sock yarn, etc.

Cascade Superwash 220 is hands down my favorite. Have to say I love Cascade yarns - IMHO very consistant quality and I love how the 220 (non superwash) felts.

Do you know who makes variegated worsted weight superwash yarns?

I use KP Swish, but I would like to find some variegated superwash yarns, too!

Artyarns Supermerino (http://www.yarn.com/webs-knitting-crochet-yarns-weight-heavy-worsted/webs-knitting-yarns-artyarns-supermerino/) is variegated worsted weight superwash - beautiful colors, but a bit pricier than KP.

Lornas Laces Shepard yarns are superwash.

Malabrigo also has a superwash worsted now according to Ravelry. I think it's new though so might be harder to get.

Cascade 220 has two superwash variegated yarns called Quatro and Paint. They look beautiful.

I didn't know Quatro was superwash! I love the way Quatro looks when it's knitted! Thank you so much!

I don't think I've ever used a Cascade yarn, but I saw some projects on Ravelry knitted with Quatro and thought it was so pretty. :cheering:

Check to be sure the one you buy IS superwash. Cascade sometimes uses the same name like 220 can be either hand or machine wash depending on the one you buy.
