Add extra texture and depth to your handknits with Wool of the Andes Tweed Worsted! This tweed combines a classic heathered palette with earthy-colored flecks of Donegal tweed–viscose and acrylic neps that are spun alongside the Peruvian Highland wool. The tweedy Donegal neps add a rustic and traditional appeal to everything from cabled pullovers to outdoorsy hats and mitts. Wonderfully warm for all weather, this sturdy, all-purpose yarn has excellent stitch definition and heirloom durability.  As a worsted weight yarn, it’s a happy medium weight that’s commonly used for everything from garments to home goods, and Wool of the Andes’ heathered color palette with neutral-colored neps looks as cozy as your finished pieces will feel.

Use Wool of the Andes Tweed Worsted to create bouncy cables, gorgeous textures, or beautiful colorwork. As a "sticky" wool–meaning the fibers grip lightly together–Wool of the Andes 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.

Wool of the Andes Tweed Worsted also comes in solids and heathers without neps as Wool of the Andes Worsted, and the two yarns can be mixed and matched to create an even wider selection of options for multicolor projects.
