Cascade Ecological Wool & Eco+
Cascade Eco is a great staple yarn. It knits up beautifully on 6mm/US10 needles (although you can use up to 8mm/US11 for a cardigan like Iced by Carol Feller see photos below). It's very affordable and comes in extra-large, 250g skeins, making it extremely popular for blankets, sweaters and felted slippers. One skein in enough to make a scarf/infinity scarf. On the softness scale, it's somewhere around an 8/10 - not as soft as a Merino, Alpaca or Cashmere, but pretty good as far as wool goes.
