Cascade’s “Ecological Wool” is the ideal yarn choice for those of us who appreciate high-quality wool at an affordable price and are concerned about the environment. Beautifully crafted in Peru of 100% undyed Peruvian Highland wool, “Eco Wool” yarn, as it is often called, is minimally processed, naturally processed and earth friendly. Wound in generous 250-gram hanks (That’s over half a pound of yarn!), “Eco Wool” is a heavy worsted yarn beauty that gives you 478 yards in every hank. That means fewer tie-ins and less finishing work too for every pullover, hat, scarf, jacket, cardigan, shawl and bag project you knit or crochet in this wonderfully soft yarn. “Ecological Wool” also felts fabulously and works well in a variety of felting projects.
