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:

The yarn did not disappoint! Very nice weight for bulky yarn projects, knits up evenly and blocks nicely. I am so pleased with this yarn for this particular sweater project that I've just ordered more of the same in another color.

          I love this wool. It's great for stitch definition, and knits up soft enough for a baby sweater! Amazing value, gorgeous natural colors, very high quality. You can't go wrong with it!

            I used this for a toddler coat. It is soft and warm and not unduly heavy in weight although it has some considerable volume, It washed up easily for blocking and air dried true to size.

            This is a nice wool that will work up into a great finished product. I am making the Quilt and Cable Blanket (free pattern from Cascade) and I am very pleased with the cable definition and the overall look.
            The yarn is the tiniest bit splitty, but it's only really an issue on the cable rows.

                    I love this yarn so much. It's lovely and soft and minimally processed.It knits up quickly- projects fly off the needles. Also great yardage, a value for the price, especially when it's on sale.
