Yarn Similar to Cascade Superwash?
I haven't knitted a thing all summer and this morning when I put the kids' scarves on them (day 2!), DS informed me that the next time I made him a scarf, he wanted it to be blue!

Never mind that his coat is red and black! (He's five years old.)

His old coat was yellow and so is his scarf.

Well, I used Cascade 220 Superwash for both his and his sister's scarves, but the LYS I bought it from went out of business.

My new LYS does not show up on the Cascade store locator. Other stores show up, and maybe I should check one of those out, but the one I like is conveniently located next door to my favorite Mexican restaurant.

Is there a yarn that is a good equivalent to Cascade 220 Superwash?

I probably could research it myself, but I thought it might be easier to pick the brains of friendly and experienced knitters.

Is there a KnitPicks equivalent? I'd rather buy from the LYS, but I'm open to suggestions.
