    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 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.

                  Nice undyed natural wool. Bought this for my Mom to knit me a Fisherman's sweater. Soft double spun wool with a pleasant light grey color.

                    I am about 3/4 finished making a cape of the Eco wool for a trip to a damp cool climate. It will be perfect for warmth and to repel the mist in the air. The color I chose is gray and it will be easy to accessorize. It should take anyone through a fall in a cold climate.
