Cascade 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. Made in Peru.

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.

Comments about 23.75 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.

              Comments about 23.75 Eco +:

              I love this yarn. It is a good weight; slightly heavier than normal worsted, but not bulky, more like an Aran wt. The colors are wonderful. It works so easily & shows cable detail very well. It is very warm & water resistant as it is 100% wool, great for caps, scarves, sweaters,leg warmers etc. If you are looking for a soft "Cashmere" sort of wool, this is not your best choice; one of the reasons I like it is that is has a slightly coarse texture...not extreme, just enough. Just a really good all round worsted yarn.

                  This is a reasonably priced wool and really good for felting. That is all I am using it for. I am weaving on my pin loom squares and making objects to felt. It works well for that. I like I get a lot of yardage at a reasonable price. I especially liked the color the yarn I got. It looks hand dyed.
