Cascade Ecological Wool?

I'm thinking of making yet another CPH, this time using Cascade Ecological Wool and would love to hear everyone's reactions... Is the yarn too heavy, too different in gauge, etc? I think I could knit the smaller size instructions and it would yield the proper size for me, but I'm not sure.

Thanks in advance for your opinions!

I used the Eco wool for a Retro Redux shrug and it was great! Good feel to it. I found it was like a heavy worsted and that would be great for this pattern. Good deal too, you have to wind it in 2 balls it has so much yardage!
