Yarn like Cascade 220 but washable?
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!

I really like wools but I hate to hand wash anything!

And I would love to have an excuse to buy more yarn!
