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 Sport is a classic lightweight wool, adding more options to your wool palette. Finer gauge projects extend your knitting year into the shoulder seasons, making hats, mitts, and accessories or sweaters and garments that are perfect for the transitional weather of Spring and Fall. With the unsurpassed stitch definition of wool, this lighter weight is also excellent for accessible Fair Isle projects and other stranded colorwork.

Wool of the Andes is also available in Worsted and Bulky weights; the machine washable convenience of Superwash in Worsted and Superwash in Bulky; and the classic style of rustic Tweed.
