      Comments about Cascade Yarns Eco + Discontinued Colors:

      One of my favorite knitting yarns. It's not a bulky weight--more of a heavy worsted. I usually knit it on a size 6 or 7 needle at about 18 stitches to 4 inches. Moderately soft--not merino soft but softer than Cascade 220 and slightly fuzzy. It is a 2-ply, and fairly loosely plied, so it does occasionally split while knitting and works best on slippery metal needles rather than wood or bamboo. A very lofty yarn, so it's warm without a lot of weight, unless you knit it quite tightly. The colors are great, especially the heathers.

      Excellent worsted workhorse

        Comments about Cascade Yarns Eco + Discontinued Colors:

        I'm knitting a top-down pullover with this yarn, and chose it for its worsted-leaning-towards-bulky weight and the interest of the color. I wanted a yarn that would hang, not drape, and so far it appears that this yarn fits that bill exactly.

        It knits up super-quickly and the weight is very consistent - no thin spots, knots, or other problems.

          This yarn is fabulous. It feels sturdy, great workhorse yarn. Excellent price (even if it's not on sale). Of the 2 skeins I wound, there were NO FLAWS in either skein. No weak spots, no knots. Love the sheer utility of this yarn.

                  Huge skeins so can knit one side of sweater without a join. However so big it is hard to wind it into a ball.
                  I would recomend for sweaters and large items.

                        The eco+ color is excellent! I got the Chocolate Kiss and it is beautiful. The yarn itself is great and I love the tons of yardage in each skein. I knitted a mens extra tall cable sweater and used just 3 skeins! This yarn doesn't stretch out when wearing or washing but still has plenty of bounce when knitting.

                          This yarn never lets me down -- whether the dyed colors or naturals, it's a pleasure to knit, looks great, doesn't pill, holds its shape in garments (knit at a firm gauge) and even with the price increase, it's still a bargain for the yardage.
