Wool of the Andes Bulky Yarn
For the sweater you’ll wear a thousand times or the blanket you’ll use every night, our classic wool yarn is spun and plied carefully to achieve a wonderfully balanced twist. Spun from Peruvian wool, the strong fiber has an excellent balance of structure, loft, and drape that serves a wide variety of uses. Wonderfully warm for all weather, this sturdy, all-purpose yarn has excellent stitch definition and heirloom durability. It is ideal for cabled sweaters, textured stitch afghans, and every day accessories. While careful hand washing will keep your stitches crisp and sweaters long-lived, Wool of the Andes also felts beautifully with warm water and agitation, creating a fabric even more warm and durable than knitting alone.
Wool of the Andes Bulky is a heavy weight yarn that knits up quickly into thick and cushy projects. Bulky weight sweaters in this classic wool will keep you warm in almost any weather, while bulky accessories can be finished that much quicker. From richly textured weekend hats to the most delightfully chunky cables, this is the perfect yarn for that last minute project.
Wool of the Andes is also available in Sport and Worsted weights; the machine washable convenience of Superwash in Worsted and Superwash in Bulky; and the classic style of rustic Tweed.
