I ordered this in the natural darkest brown color, and it is a little lighter in person. However, it is so, so soft. The yarn has had no weird joins, and is super strong and very stretchy.

My only caveat is that is is a "thinner" worsted. The thickness does alter slightly, but not enough to negatively affect stitch definition. There is a light haze around the hat I am making--very light and pleasing. I could pet this hat all day. I love the natural color and feel, and unlike other dyed yarns, this does not hurt my eyes while knitting (dyes seem to make my eyes hurt), nor does it have any stinky dyed smell.

I was using this to knit my father a hat--in a "plain" manly color, but when I try it on for sizing, I am in love with the natural warm color myself. I think I might get more of this super lovely, warm, soft yarn to make myself a shawl. It's cozy, and one imagines feeling very warm and romantic and old-fashioned in such a garment.

The yarn was soft and the colors were beautiful and natural. The issue I had was that of the 4 skeins I had, none of the were split less than 6 times. Two of the skeins must have been made from the ends of a ton of different skeins. Some of the lengths were no more than 12 inches long. Makes it very hard to use the skeins in project without it becoming a pain to use. Not very happy with it at all.

          Silky soft

              Best Uses

                Comments about Cascade Yarns Eco Highland Duo:

                I second everyone's comments on angora-like softness, haloed stitch definition, and yummy natural colors. The yarn has no twist (is slubby) with slightly thick and thin stretches which made me use a smaller than recommended needle size so that my finished fabric didn't end up with thin spots. I have ordered this two different times and will order again. Every person without exception who has gotten one of these scarves has put it to their face and said something akin to "oh my ....gosh".

                          I love that it is not dyed. The light colour was a little more hard to work with than the dark, it also comes apart every now and then.

                          This yarn is lovely. Easy to knit with, shows defintion. I'm knitting a sweater with it. It might not work for close fitting styles as it doesn't have enough body. Make sure you swatch because it will grow but I haven't knitted with a yarn that didn't to some degree. I wish I had the time and the patience to knit a blanket with it.

                          I made a vest to match a suede cloth skirt. The pearly halo effect of the yarn made a perfect match. The 3 solid colors I tried didn't come close to matching. It's bulky but light weight which is great for Florida. Elegant effect in garter stitch. I love the natural colors of the merino wool and baby alpaca together.
