An all-time bestseller, Wool of the Andes Worsted is our iconic workhorse wool! Made from 100% Peruvian Highland wool, it’s the perfect yarn for projects that will get used daily, like your favorite sweater, hat, or blanket. Peruvian Highland wool is a strong fiber that has an excellent balance of structure, loft, and drape. 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’ 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 is an ideal choice for both stranded colorwork and intarsia because stitches "stick" in place 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 Worsted also comes in Wool of the Andes Tweed Worsted, which can be mixed and matched with solids and heathers. It’s also available in Wool of the Andes Superwash Worsted for easy care projects.

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!
