New Yarn: Good Wool
Welcome the newest addition to our yarn collection, Good Wool, as in, “Wow, that’s a really good wool!”… As in, a classic, stitch-defining, durable, heirloom-worthy, really good yarn!
Good Wool comes from the Andean highlands in Peru, a place with pure air, rich fiber traditions, and lots of sheep! This region’s culture and beauty spark our imaginations, and we love that Good Wool takes us there with every stitch.
This yarn is 100% Andean highland wool and comes in five undyed colors: Heirloom White, Winter Grass, Driftwood Gray, Walking Stick, and Hickory Nut. In colors grown by the sheep themselves, Good Wool is beautiful but also environmentally gentle with no harsh dyes and little water waste.
Good Wool is also a real pleasure to knit. A light worsted weight, it is buoyant and hardy, toasty and soft. It has a genuine natural beauty that is obvious in how it looks and feels, and right now, it’s on our needles for sweaters, scarves, wraps, mittens, hats, and blankets… pretty much everything!
And each skein is a very affordable 383 yards so you can knit a scarf with just a couple of skeins and a sweater for not a whole lot more… So good!
Our first project in Good Wool perfectly reflects the simple beauty of this yarn. Our Lovely Ribbed Scarf, in the color Walking Stick, is a true classic! Get the free pattern, plus two or three skeins of Good Wool and cast on!
