Wool of the Andes Bulky Yarn

$4.49 - $4.99 100g / hank

Wool of the Andes Bulky is a classic wool yarn spun and plied carefully to achieve a wonderfully balanced twist. A sturdy yet soft yarn that we love using to quickly knit up simple, comfortable sweaters. Dramatic stitch patterns and large cables are appealingly displayed with this yarn. Recommended for felting - felted projects are finished quickly and have a satisfying heft to them.

“Knit Picks- great yarn; great prices. I used Wool of the Andes for my Enchanted Forest Fingerless gloves and it is strong, the colors are vibrant, and the cost was low. I used 3 skeins for two gloves, and it cost me $2.19 per skein plus shipping- under $10!”, February 2009

Definitely a bulky yarn.I got my gauge right off, and no splitting at all.Knits up quick and beautiful. Will use this yarn again

Color is lovely and yarn works up really well. I would say it definitely is a bulky yarn, but it's not overly difficult to work with and still has good definition and drape. Love it!

I love this yarn. It knits up fast and its wool. The colors are beautiful and I find its nice against the skin. I've made sweaters and mitts from it and have never been disappointed. I use needle sizes 8 through 10 with it. I think you always check gauge with any pattern and change your needle size as appropriate for your project especially if you love the yarn! : ) I don't think you can go wrong for a warm sweater with this product. It's lovely.

The yarn itself is fine. It has a nice texture and the skein I bought (Wallaby) was the same colour as the picture. But, the thing is, this yarn is most definitely NOT bulky. It works better with size 7 or 8 needles, not 10 or 11. But besides that, it's lovely. (though I probably will have to return it, due to the fact it won't really work with my pattern)
