Cascade Eco Duo, Baby Alpaca and Merino Yarn description:
This alpaca merino blend yarn is soft, soft, soft! Natural colors and subtle graduated shading in a roving style twist make Eco Duo from Cascade a dream yarn for hats, scarves, cowls, and sweaters.
Weaving Tip: Its soft twist will make it tricky to use in anything but weft, but with a finer warp and tabby it could become a favorite for subdued, natural colored fabrics for scarves and vests. Try Jaggerspun 2/8 Worsted (Item 22).
Wash lukewarm and lay flat to dry
