Knit Picks Wool of the Andes


Wool of the Andes Worsted is Knit Picks’ 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.

Use Wool of the Andes to create bouncy cables, gorgeous textures, or beautiful colorwork. As a “sticky” wool – meaning the fibers grip lightly togethe – Wool of the Andes is an ideal choice for both stranded color  work 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.
