Pastaza Add to My Favorites
"Pastaza" is a wonderfully soft wool blend, chunky yarn from Cascade. Its composition of 50% Llama and 50% Peruvian highland wool works well for winter outfits like sweaters, jackets, coats and accessories. Also "Pastaza" is an ideal choice for felting projects.

I love this yarn!!! It is so soft during knitting making it so pleasurable to sit and stitch with. I am dreaming up lots of things to knit with it so I can keep it running through my fingers!

I also love this yarn. I have felted 2 bags with it and it felts fabulously. A bit fuzzier look when felted, but beautiful.

I actually bought this by accident (was mingled with 220 on a shelf); I'd wanted to make a tan, felted hat. Felted, it's so thick and soft; fuzzy lusciousness.

I too love this yarn. Another Cascade winner. It is a dream to work with and the colors are beautiful.

While it is nice to work with, I find it unbearably itchy against my skin. Great for gifts to people who are not sensitive to wool!
