Superwash is treated to be washable (that's why it says 'wash' in its name) and often has to be dried in the dryer or it'll stretch out. I find regular cascade 220 to be scratchier than most acrylics, but I haven't felt the superwash version.

Using 2 strands of worsted can be a little thick for bulky, but as long as you got gauge and it's not too stiff (which makes it less soft sometimes) then you're fine.
