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 true Ecological Wool:

            I bought this yarn to make a rugged sweater for my son-in-law. It is kind of scratchy but not enough to bother most men. It also holds up well to ripping out and reknitting. I was trying to make up the pattern as I went along and did a lot of reworking and this yarn worked valiantly to avoid unraveling and knotting. Great value overall!

              I made a beautiful cable sweater, it does loosen up when blocked so I used a smaller needle and went a size smaller to get a perfect fit.

                  Comments about true Ecological Wool:

                  I've used the Eco+ and Ecological Wool for several scarves/cowls, and am now using it (held double) to knit throw blankets. The yarn feels a little scratchy at first, but softens up to a LOVELY feel once blocked. I love blocking this yarn! The tension/stiffness really loosens and whatever you have made turns to gold.

                  Sometimes you'll find some plant/vegetable matter stranded into the plies, but for such huge skeins, I have never found a single knot! This yarn is a solid go-to, always. Great quality, great price.

                        I used the Cascade Eco Wool and Noro Kureyon to knit the !!POP!! pattern - baby blanket size. It looks marvelous and feels so soft. It will be a big hit with the new parents.
