i've recently branched out into knitting and fancy yarns, and i'm working on my first sweater.  i'm using a cascade 220 heather, which i am completely in love with, but i have a fear of it felting.  i know how to wash 100% wool things properly, and i would always wash it by hand, but still, it would make me feel better if it was superwash.  is there anything i can do to the yarn to make it less likely to felt?
