Cascade Yarns Eco Plus is the same yarn as Ecological Wool, but it is commercially dyed in many vibrant colors. Because of the tremendous yardage, you will be able to finish a beautiful project (sweater or even a blanket) at a great price! Eco + also felts like a dream.

Eco Wool is one of my favorite yarns. It is so versatile. Because it is a 2-ply worsted-spun yarn, it can be knit at several gauges. You can use it for an Aran sweater on a size 8 needle, or go all the way up to a fairly loose, drapey knit on a size 11. It is probably most at home on about a size 10 needle. The yarn has good stitch definition as well as being soft and well-behaved, so it's great for cables. The downside is that because it's not a true bulky-weight yarn, it tends to compact upon knitting. However, it can be doubled to make a firm fabric. The natural shades of Eco Wool are a sensual delight since they have a great clean lanolin smell, and in addition to looking and feeling great, the lanolin makes your hands soft while you work. When knitters talk about being overcome by yarn fumes, this is what we mean. It's addictive! The Eco Plus has all this plus some stunning, mostly heathered, dyed shades. At nearly 500 yards per skein, it's a great value.

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.) Many dark colours bleed profusely. Wash yarn first (I used synthrapol) if used with light colours in same garment. Otherwise, a really nice yarn.

    I am about to knit the Einstein coat so I don't have much to say at this point. It feels very soft and I love the huge yardage of the yarn.

      Comments about 16.49 Eco +:

      This yarn does best when thought of as worsted weight and knitted at a gauge of at least 18st/4 inches in stockinette. I recently knit a long cardigan with it at this gauge. It grew slightly in all directions after soaking. The cardigan has received heavy wear, and tended to droop slightly after repeated wearings. The drooping was fixed with a quick soak, towel pressing out of water, and laying the garment flat to dry. There has been a bit of pilling, but not enough to mar the essentially good-looking sweater. I use this yarn all the time, and find that the tighter the gauge, the better it handles. I also like to combine it with alpaca sock yarn, keeping the gauge at 18 st/4 inches for a heavy sweater that wears very well.
      Incidentally, I ran out of yarn for the cardigan project and had to use a different dye lot. There was absolutely NO detectable difference in the two dye lots.

      A lovely wool yarn that worked up nicely in a man's sweater. It handled my frogging well without shedding or unraveling and didn't notice any pilling. For the price it is a great value.

      Comments about 16.49 Eco +:

      I had knit a blanket a few years ago out of Eco+, and it is a good staple yarn to get a quick knit done. I am not sure how well the yarn holds up over time. The blanket was a gift for my in-laws, and a few years later, the blanket looks a bit worse for wear. I am not sure if it is due to how they care for the blanket (they have no dryer, and not sure if it has been put through the washer), or just the yarn itself. I am about half way through a sweater and hopefully it holds up better. Not the softest yarn, but not overly scratchy either. Really great value.
