Simply Wool Worsted

$6.99 100g / Hank


You’d have to shear your own sheep to get any more natural, this 100% Eco wool yarn is good for you and Mother Earth. The product of centuries of shepherding tradition, the balanced twist and dense, plump hand gives this yarn fabulous definition for textured or cabled sweaters and accessories. No dyes or bleach are used to process the yarn; the eight natural shades are created by meticulously sorting the fiber as it comes off the sheep. As colors are naturally occurring, some variation from skein to skein is normal.

I really like this yarn. It is true to worsted weight. I am usually a tight knitter and actually had to go down a needle size to get gauge for my Veronika Cardi. It definitely has a...homespun feel to it. I have picked out a few pieces of hay as I have gone along. It is also a little scratchy, but I think it makes a great sweater yarn due to being very hardy. I plan on buying more for another cardigan.

Can someone who posted a review please tell me if this yarn is "itchy"

Bought just a few skeins not knowing what to expect. This yarn is tight, robust and should do well for garments not intended to be worn near the skin. (I have a fisherman's sweater in mind.)

This is a wonderful yarn, I nearly cancelled my order for it but so glad that I did not. I actually used it to dye with indigo and it came out beautifully. Aside from that it is everything I'm looking for in a yarn, 100% Eco, several great natural colors to choose from. The yardage is great and feel great! I hope that Knitpicks will keep this yarn! I will buy again!

I love it! Just ordered one skein (Winnie) to try it. Making a Bankhead hat. The yarn is very plump and squishy. It's thicker than wool of the andes worsted, so it doesn't lend itself to using those two yarns together. It's lightly tonal and really pretty.I will definitely be ordering more!! Hoping knitpicks will make a sport or fingering weight.
