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:

    I use this yarn when it first came out to knit a "Comfy Raglan" on US 11 needles In the natural shade and it has become a favorite go-to sweater in colder months. I recently purchase two skeins of the Antique shade in a lovely gray-brown which I have slated for a "Lone Wolf" lace pullover on US 9's or the "Ramona Cardigan" by Liz Smith. The yarn is soft and somewhat rustic but sophisticated as well. Highly recommend this incredibly valued yarn in 500 yard hanks!

      I have made two sweaters and a hat with this yarn and they feel and look beautiful. I would recommend this yarn to anyone. I do wish Webs would get more different colors in this yarn. I have found some other colors on other websites and have purchased them but would prefer to buy from Webs!

              I crocheted two 'Long Live the Queen' throws and just loved how they turned out. The yarn is very soft and gives the throws an 'old world' look that is just gorgeous.

              Service and delivery comments:

              My yarn can never get here fast enough! But the delivery was timely.

                  Comments about Cascade Yarns Ecological Wool:

                  Ecological Wool has become my go-to yarn for making sweaters for my boy. He's now 13. It holds up to being worn to play outside. He loves sweaters made with this yarn so much that he attempted to do his own laundry when the last sweater was dirty. Of course, the sweater felted. So.... I can also say that it felts beautifully.

                  Comments about Cascade Yarns Ecological Wool:

                  I made my boyfriend a replica of the Dude's sweater from The Big Lebowski. He loves it and I enjoyed knitting it. The yarn is so soft and snuggly, he's going to love it all winter. Plus, I have enough left over to knit myself something fun. I can't get enough of the texture. The one and only complaint I have is that it's expensive but it is well worth it. I spent a lot of money to make something from the heart instead of spending double to buy one ready made. We live it..

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Customer service was extremely helpful and prompt. I called to change my order and received a quick confirmation. I emailed a couple days later and got a very fast response. The yarn arrived on time (except what was back ordered that couldn't be helped) and in good condition and I absolutely will order again.
