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. It is an excellent yarn for felting. The hand-dyed colors have short repeats so the color changes frequently, producing a marbled effect when knitted. Wool of the Andes Bulky is soft and will not pill like Merino, perfect for slippers, hats, sturdy bags and purses, and warm sweaters and jackets for outdoor wear.
