NEW YARN: Cascade Eco Duo!

Cascade Eco Duo is a new petting yarn that just arrived and it's going to make you sweat, then drool, then fantasize, then obsess, and then finally cave and snuggle.  It is seriously, emphatically soft. nomysteryleft on Ravelry says "It’s like Malabrigo on steroids… super SOFT steroids!!!" Caveat emptor.  

So here are the stats: it is 70% undyed baby alpaca and 30% undyed merino wool, made in Peru. Skeins are 100g and offer up 180m of ecstatic, bacchanalian pleasure. The ball band suggests knitting on 6mm needles, 18 sts = 4".  It comes in 8 natural colour varieties, ranging from blends of natural, beige, brown, grey, and black. You'll probably be seeing lots of the colours this fall, as Camel is making a comeback

Here are some of my favorite project made with Cascade Eco Duo on Ravelry (see it in action!):

And here are some projects I think it would look great in!
This is the Slouchy Hat/Beret we made with 1 skein of Cascade Eco Duo. The pattern is FREE, just follow our link!
