What is probably the most characteristic of wool is probably its amazing ability to hold heat. The appearance of the wool depends on which sheep variety it comes from and how it is processed. Wool can be used for crochet, knitting or felting - needles to say, with this kind of yarn there are a plentitude of possibilities.

The many characteristics of the wool yarn

The benefits of using wool for knitting or crochet projects are many. One of them is that it is a natural temperature regulating material that can absorb up to 35% moisture without feeling cold or wet to the skin. Another advantage that many may not associate with wool is that it is actually possible to get wool materials that do not itch - did you know that? Although there are of course some materials that are itchy, we also sell lots of wool types, which actually have a silky feel and thus are extremely soft. So remember to have this in mind before buying your wool yarn. In addition, the wool is also very well suited to the Nordic climate as it holds heat really well. Did not know that wool is also able to cool? The fact that wool may show both warming and cooling properties attests to yarn being a material perfect for being used all year round to the delight of lots of people.

When using wool as its primary yarn material, it is extremely important that you follow the correct washing instructions. Wool is a sensitive material that can easily change its structure and shape if washed incorrectly. If you buy 100% wool yarn, it will typically have an ideal washing temperature at 30/40 degrees, which is usually the most appropriate. In addition, be aware that you dry the wool flat so it does not shrink. If you want to take extra care of your wool yarn, you should make sure that you follow the ideal knitting and crochet tension and use the recommended knitting needles and crochet hooks.

Good for everyday life

With wool yarn there are many possibilities. It can be used by and for children and adults, who may prefer to crochet or knit warm socks to enjoy on a cold winter day. However, there are also many other knitting and crochet options in woolen garments such as scarves, mittens and sweaters.

What our customers say about Wool

valerie woodhouse

Beautiful wool. this wool is a dream to knit with, so silky soft but does not knit up floppy like some soft yarns.It gives good definition to the stitch pattern I am using. I found it did tend to split when I first started but I just pay more attention to my knitting and it's not a problem. would definitely recommend it
