Wool of the Andes Sport Yarn

$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.

The yarn feels great for the price!! I purchased the colors caution and semolina. The colors were more dull than I expected, though beautiful. I am exchanging colrs.

I absolutely LOVEWool of the Andes Sport! It is the perfect yarn for doing beautifully stranded work! I bought it as an alternate for Rowan Felted Tweed and I think that this is just as soft, durable, workable and wonderful, at less than half the cost! This way I can make two fair isle sweaters, plus a couple hats, for about the same price as just one.

I like the sport weight for a lighter, less bulky sweater, but also use a double strand for mittens, both regular mittens and felted. I have been making a lot more articles since I discovered KnitPicks, because the price is so reasonable. I only wish I had the same color selection in the sport weight that is available in the worsted weight.

I can't believe how nice this yarn is for the price! This was my first order from Knitpicks and I'm extremely satisfied. I ordered 3- 50 gram balls (one in each of three colors). By alternating background colors and designs, I made two sets of child mittens and two matching hats, all for about $12 including shipping! Very nice to work with and I found it quite soft, but not limp. Thank you!

Over the past 2 years, I have ordered over $600 of this yarn. Obviously, I like it very much. I use it mostly for felting and I find it is perfect. My only problem has been getting it quickly enough, but a small price to pay for something I enjoy this uch.

I love the colors available and plan to use three matching for one child's sweater.

I was really disappointed with this yarn -- from the reviews, I was expecting it to be fairly soft, but the balls I ordered are scratchy -- too scratchy to be comfortable for the cuff of a glove. I'm honestly not sure what I'm going to do to use it up. Wouldn't buy again, I'm afraid.

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.
