              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.

              Pearly Glow

              By Ling Ling

              from Atlantic Beach, FL

              Verified Buyer

              Pros

              • Great For Garter Stitch
              • Love Natural Colors
              • Pearly Blended Colors
              • Soft With Slight Halo

              Cons

              • Easy To Split Stitches
              • Strands Sometime Uneven
              • Yarn Is Softly Twisted

              Best Uses

              • Hats
              • Sweaters And Vests

              Comments about Cascade Yarns Eco Highland Duo:

              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.

              Super Soft--Lovely Hand

              By Maggie's Mom

              from Woodbridge, NJ

              Comments about Cascade Yarns Eco Highland Duo:

              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.

              Service and delivery comments:

              I love Webs--maybe too much. But be aware that it's no Amazon--your yarn will not be shipped the next day or even two...but overall, it's speedy and the price and selection can't be beat. I am a WEBS (yarn.com) addict! :-))

              • Soft
              • Undyed
              • Warm

              Cons

                Best Uses

                • Hats
                • Scarves
                • Sweaters

                Comments about Cascade Yarns Eco Highland Duo:

                I used this yarn to knit a hat for my outdoorsy daughter. The yarn is soft and warm, slightly fuzzy, and just plain nice to work with. I will definitely use this yarn again.
                Because it's undyed, there are natural variations in the fibers that result in a lovely, slight self-striping effect.
