Product details

We think you will love the cotton and acrylic blend of Cascade Avalon. Machine wash- and dry-able, this worsted weight yarn knits up beautifully on 5mm needles into a range of projects. The cotton content gives it an airy feel ideal for summery garments, and a lovely sheen on the fabulous array of colors.

Soft and knits up beautifully

Karen Chase

 
Avalon has worked up just fine. I’m knitting a baby sweater with it. The acrylic in it helped keep tension even, and I like how it doesn’t have all of the bulk or weight of cotton. It’s pleasant to knit and doesn’t make my hands hurt like 100% cotton. The color is really beautiful and vibrant and the stitch definition is crisp. That said, I don’t love it. After knitting this, I can say I really prefer cotton-wool blends more. Avalon has a bit of a sheen to it due to the acrylic and is a tiny bit splitty. I really love Cascade yarns most of the time. I might repurchase this yarn again, but prefer other yarns over it, such as O-Wool Balance, or Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece.
