Lighten up your knits with your favorite 100% Peruvian Highland wool by casting on with Wool of the Andes Sport! Peruvian Highland wool is a strong fiber that has an excellent balance of structure, loft, and drape, and Wool of the Andes Sport is our finest-gauge yarn available in the Wool of the Andes family. Finer-gauge, lighter projects extend your knitting year, making hats, mitts, and accessories or sweaters and garments that are perfect for milder weather, but Wool of the Andes Sport can also be used to make extra-cozy but not-too-bulky brioche accessories, double-knit hats, and stranded colorwork sweaters for the chilliest of days. Wool of the Andes’ extensive color palette is just as versatile as the yarn itself, with dozens of solids and heathers to choose from.

Use Wool of the Andes to create bouncy cables, gorgeous textures, or beautiful colorwork. As a "sticky" wool–meaning the fibers grip lightly together–Wool of the Andes Sport is an ideal choice for both stranded colorwork and intarsia because stitches "stick" in place and won’t shift or loosen as you work, and the wide selection of saturated colors provides a wonderful palette for projects. 50g balls make it easy to add a wide variety of colors to your handknits without waste, and for larger single-color projects, this sticky wool will splice together with ease when using the felted join. In addition to being great for projects where your stitches are on display, Wool of the Andes also felts beautifully with warm water and agitation, creating a dense, durable fabric with structure for felted slippers, bags, and beyond. 

Looking for other weights? The same great wool is available in Wool of the Andes Sport, Wool and the Andes Bulky, and Wool of the Andes Superwash Bulky. If you’re a spinner, you can create your own custom weight of yarn using Wool of the Andes Roving!
