I like Plymouth Encore.  It is an acrylic/wool blend.  Also most major brands, like Lambs Pride, make a super wash version.
good luck!

Mission Falls wool is very nice superwash.  It was discontinued, but another mill has picked it up, so it should be in production again soon.

Have you tried www.knitpicks.com?  There yarn is pretty inexpensive and I believe they have superwash wool.

Cascade makes an inexpensive superwash.  It comes in great colors.  Ultimately, you'll end up buying what is convenient for you, right?  Do you plan to buy online, or go into a store to see and touch the yarn.  If you're in a store, they can advise about the yarn, and even special order for you.

thanks for the help everyone . right now i mostly buy off the internet because i can get the same stuff for less money and my lys don't have the best stock of good priced washable yarn.
i just need to keep finding more so when i need some i have alot of options! Wink

Ditto on the Cascade recommendation. I've never used it, only fondled it in the store, but it feels pretty nice. Brown Sheep (the makers of Lamb's Pride) make a superwash that I've seen in worsted weight, and it comes in many colors. Not so much the soft, though.

knitpicks doesn't have any 100% superwash wool right now. They have some superwash wool mixed with nylon for sock yarn though.

I think Cascade 220 superwash is your best bet. Have you tried buying it on ebay?

A wonderful (not cheap) superwash wool is Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted. SUPER soft.

Here's another suggestion--I was just at elann.com and noticed they have several superwash wool yarns on sale. Check them out.
