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.

      Size 9 kneedles and the yarn just flows. Sometimes it snags only because I'm going to fast. It's lite weight, and warm. I have made a blanket a cardigan sweater and an amazing 3-way wrap. Love this yarn for it's weight.

        Great versatile yarn. No knots. Good yardge. Only complaint would be (if you want to call it that) is that the colors are slightly different betweeen dyes lots. Easily avoided by buying enough yarn!

          Comments about Cascade Yarns Ecological Wool:

          I knitted a Through the Woods hood. Turned out beautifully. Loved knitting with it. It's wound so tightly in the skein, you don't get a good sense of its fabulous qualities until you knit with it. Caution: swatch AND block your swatch. It blooms and expands when blocked.

          Comments about Cascade Yarns Ecological Wool:

          I just finished a cabled cardigan knit in one piece and realized blocking it would be a challenge. I wanted to block it with the front side up to keep the front edges straight, but worried about flattening the cables on the back.

          The cables on the back looked completely flat when wet, but fluffed up with perfect stitch definition when dry.

          I was very impressed with the quality of this yarn. There wasn't a single knot in either skein and the yarn thickness was consistent throughout. It's the most comfortable wool I've ever used.

              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.
