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 Cascade Yarns 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.

                  Taught beginning knitters to make hats; the yarn was great, didn't split, worked up fairly quickly. I have also used Eco for blankets, mittens. it is one of my favorite heavy worsted yarns.

                    Comments about Cascade Yarns Eco +:

                    Have always had great results with Cascade yarns. I find them to be the ultimate work-horse in my knitting projects. I purchased the regular Eco (natural, undyed) yarn from Webs on a sale several years ago. Finally got around to making an afghan for a dear friend for a special b-day and finished it in Nov-15. It came out great and so very soft after washing/blocking. Wonderful stitch definition (used seed stitch and i-cord edging), sturdy, warm and knits-up fast. Everything you want in an afghan. Loved it so much making one for myself. Chose Eco+, which offers a larger variety of colors ... I chose Lichen, which is a beautiful green.

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    I initially ordered 4 skeins but after starting I decided it was best to get another to ensure I have enough. I was worried about getting the proper dye lot as the skeins came in bags of 4. Called to place order and had the option for them to only send if it was a match. I wanted the 5th skein either way (figured if there was any change in color I would use that skein for the I-cord edging where it would blend in). Well, Webs came through for me and sent a matching skein (color and dye lot). In both cases, delivery was prompt and I even got a volume discount on the initial order. I have a wonderful project on the needles for the winter! By the way, my computer screen shows the accurate color but if you have any question/concerns don't hesitate to call Webs Cust. Serv. they are so VERY helpful!
