    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.

    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:

    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.

              Comments about Cascade Yarns Ecological Wool:

              This yarn has an honesty and integrity to it.
              Most definitely not the softest yarn, in fact it is quite course (which I love), but without a doubt one of the most versatile yarns on the market (in my opinion).

              Cascade Eco Wool is my favourite yarn, I love everything about it, from the appearance to the smell.
              Rustic in appearance and wholesome in its touch.

                    the yarn wasn't a gift to me, but it is a birthday gift to my daughter-in-law this month. I finished the scarf with the 3 shades of this wool yesterday.

                        I am knitting a very complicated cabled sweater for my husband. This yarn has excellent stitch definition, giving the cables a sculptural appearance. It is a courser yarn which I am using for an outer wear sweater. I like it very much and will begin a sweater of my own with it.
