Wool of the Andes Sport Yarn

$1.75 - $2.69 50g / ball


Our popular Wool of the Andes yarn is now available in sport weight, making it perfect for affordable projects at a finer gauge. A sturdy yet soft yarn with excellent stitch definition and heirloom durability. Peruvian sheep are a cross between Corriedale (for the sturdiness) and Merino (for the softness), producing a strong fiber with an excellent softness quotient for a wide variety of uses. Felts beautifully.

I am about to order this yarn for the fourth time. Made wonderful sweaters for the men in my life. It is a joy to work with, not a heavy yarn ,yet warm. The price is outstanding. I cannot say enough. Great yarn.

I bought this yarn on 3 separate occasions this year to make Christmas stockings for some friends grandchildren. I did a smallish order first as I was skeptical of the quality. After the first order, I placed 2 more orders. You can't beat it for the price and quality! For this particular project (making at least 15 stockings), I needed a ton of colors-I am impressed by the color range. I am sure I will be back for more!

I just finished some mittens with the dove heather and they are so comfy. The fiber is soft, but strong. Every time I wear them people tell me how much they love the color( even when they have mentioned it ten times already). I also have the sage brush which is beautiful as well.
