Cascade Yarns® was founded in the late 1980's. Wanting an affordable location, Bob Dunbabin chose a vacant storefront, in Pioneer Square, Seattle, for the office and warehouse for Cascade Yarns®. The space was modest, squeezed between a mission for the homeless and the main north-south rail line. To Bob, the modest but logistically well located space suited the company's needs. Bob believed that knitters cared more about the quality of the yarn, than the prestige of the office location. Bob would use the savings from the location to provide a better yarn at a better price. The real estate market in Seattle changed and Cascade Yarns® has moved 4 times, but the dedication to quality and value in the yarn remains.

Yarn: Ecological Wool® is 100% Natural Peruvian Wool that's undyed so the colors are just as they come from the sheep. Soft and wearable, this wool is perfect to either knit up some warm and cozy garments or for felting accessories. The yarn comes in solids or marled colors and big, generous skeins.
