Eco Wool is one of my favorite yarns. It is so versatile. Because it is a 2-ply worsted-spun yarn, it can be knit at several gauges. You can use it for an Aran sweater on a size 8 needle, or go all the way up to a fairly loose, drapey knit on a size 11. It is probably most at home on about a size 10 needle. The yarn has good stitch definition as well as being soft and well-behaved, so it's great for cables. The downside is that because it's not a true bulky-weight yarn, it tends to compact upon knitting. However, it can be doubled to make a firm fabric. The natural shades of Eco Wool are a sensual delight since they have a great clean lanolin smell, and in addition to looking and feeling great, the lanolin makes your hands soft while you work. When knitters talk about being overcome by yarn fumes, this is what we mean. It's addictive! The Eco Plus has all this plus some stunning, mostly heathered, dyed shades. At nearly 500 yards per skein, it's a great value.

When knit at recommended gauge, seriously stretches when washed so be wary. Wash aggressively block your swatch and knit to it. Then block finished garment to size. (Knit to fit does NOT work with this yarn.) Many dark colours bleed profusely. Wash yarn first (I used synthrapol) if used with light colours in same garment. Otherwise, a really nice yarn.

          Comments about Cascade Yarns Eco +:

          I've never had a reaction to wool until I bought 4 skeins of this to make a throw. Ugh. It's coarse and was abrasive to my hands just in the winding. The knitted fabric isn't particularly rough but after a couple of days of handling this yarn, I was itchy, hands were raw and my eyelids were puffy. (I was stunning. Lol.) I knit with and wear wool regularly so there must be something about this particular wool that I'm sensitive to. I would like to see more details about it beyond it being "Peruvian" e.g. what type of sheep so I know what to avoid in the future. I'm now stuck with 4 huge skeins of this which isn't returnable b/c it was on sale.

              Knitting my third hood and more planned with this terrific yarn. Huge skein so only one needed per piece - great colors to choose from and so easy to knit with! Great weight so is perfect for any cold weather accessories.

              I love this yarn. It's scratchy and it pills... but it is rustic and it knits quickly on a huge variety of needle sizes (4mms to 8mms comfortably.) You can't beat the yardage for the price.

                      I am finishing a swing coat in liberty heather. It is just like I envisioned it would be. Soft, but holding its shape well, gives depth to stitches, and since they are HUGE skeins, there are very few splices, and they are easy to do. Can't wait to wear it. This is the only yarn I have used that is similar to worsted yarn I bought in Donegal Ireland. It was spun from their original type wool from local sheep. Just a little "edgy", maybe not next to your neck but beautiful stitch definition, wears like iron, and holds its shape. Now, they need to make a tweed yarn, the Ultimate.
