Used double to knit a cabled blanket. Great stitch definition. Love the long length! Great value. Easy to see errors and fix.

Even when I ran out of yarn and bought 3 more skeins, with different dye lots (in natural colour), there is no difference in colour after washing.

Softens with washing.

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.) Otherwise, a really nice yarn.

    Comments about Cascade Yarns Ecological Wool:

    A blanket I wanted to make used this wool, I panicked when I saw the price, but then I saw the yardage, what a surprise. It turned out to be gorgeous to knit with, lofted beautifully and is yummy to feel. Very easy to block. I am thrilled with the purchase.

    Looking forward to having leftovers for another project.

    Get 14 stitches p/4" nice weight for cabled and textured afghans and sweaters. Love natural color choices. Although a bit scratchy well worth the price and durability. In time will be soft. No complaints about working w/this yarn.

          I really love how this knits up so quickly - retains his shape - I have made 1 cardigan for myself already (which I received many compliments on) and am in the process of knitting a second sweater, Would recommend this over and over again.

              Size 9 kneedles and the yarn just flows. Sometimes it snags only because I'm going to fast. It's lite weight, and warm. I have made a blanket a cardigan sweater and an amazing 3-way wrap. Love this yarn for it's weight.

                Great versatile yarn. No knots. Good yardge. Only complaint would be (if you want to call it that) is that the colors are slightly different betweeen dyes lots. Easily avoided by buying enough yarn!

                  Comments about Cascade Yarns Ecological Wool:

                  I knitted a Through the Woods hood. Turned out beautifully. Loved knitting with it. It's wound so tightly in the skein, you don't get a good sense of its fabulous qualities until you knit with it. Caution: swatch AND block your swatch. It blooms and expands when blocked.
