Wool of the Andes Bulky Yarn

$7.29 100g / hank

Wool of the Andes Bulky is a classic wool yarn spun and plied carefully to achieve a wonderfully balanced twist. A sturdy yet soft yarn that we love using to quickly knit up simple, comfortable sweaters. Dramatic stitch patterns and large cables are appealingly displayed with this yarn. Recommended for felting - felted projects are finished quickly and have a satisfying heft to them.

“Knit Picks- great yarn; great prices. I used Wool of the Andes for my Enchanted Forest Fingerless gloves and it is strong, the colors are vibrant, and the cost was low. I used 3 skeins for two gloves, and it cost me $2.19 per skein plus shipping- under $10!” www.zoescheffy.blogspot.com, February 2009

I love this yarn. It is easy to work with, has beautiful, consistent colors, and makes a nice, warm blanket. I made a mermaid pouch for my sister for her birthday, and it has been a year since - there is minimal pilling and still has great integrity. A very durable yarn. I am hesitant to work with anything else.

This yarn is horrible. It feel like redheart yarn. It’s scratchy and not pleasant.

Not a bulky weight, maybe a heavy worsted. Price has more than doubled since the 16 skeins I bought in May. Way to expensive for a low quality yarn!

I bought the porcini to make a sweater and this is the softest wool ever. I love the chunky look to it and how fast the sweater is knitting up. I am definitely going to use this again, I think it would make a gorgeous blanket. For Hanna and anyone else having trouble unwinding the hank, I found it helpful to put it around my neck, or someone else's, and then unwrap and wind it into a ball

Had some problems with imperfections in yarn but overall, not too many for the amount I purchased.
