I love all of the Cascades Ecological wool colours. The beige is as pictured and knits up beautifully. It isn't super soft but soft enough to be comfortable. It makes a lovely warm sweater and I used it to make a sampler squares blanket. The beige and dark brown colours seem to be slightly thinner than the other colours but it shouldn't be enough to make a difference if you're planning to mix colours. Also the Latte and Tarnish colours are almost identical so don't mix the two if you're looking for contrasting or complimentary colours.
Absolutely love this wool, super nice to knit with and made a perfect alternative to a more expensive wool that was recommended for the Sunday Sweater. The skein is enormous and a pain in the rear to ball up, but totally worth it.
Purchased this to make the Fireside Pullover as it was the recommended yarn. It was a dream to work with and even nicer to wear! Lots of squish and warmth! It works up and wears beautifully. The only reason I gave it a 4/5 is because the skeins are massive and difficult to work with at that size BUT it’s a fair trade off for the value and quality.
Great value for money. Wonderful soft natural yarn. A pleasure to work with .Warm and cosy on the skin.
