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

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.

This is wonderful yarn. I was looking for a nice bulky rich red to make Carol Feller's "Tembo" sweater, and this was *perfect*! It made a beautiful sweater coat, quick, no pilling, no splitting - just great. And for a sweater coat made in a large size, it's not heavy. The coat is warm, beautiful, and a joy to wear. Can't wait to use it again!
