Wool of the Andes Tweed
For the sweater you’ll wear a thousand times or the blanket you’ll use every night, our classic wool yarn is spun and plied carefully to achieve a wonderfully balanced twist. Spun from Peruvian wool, the strong fiber has an excellent balance of structure, loft, and drape that serves a wide variety of uses. Wonderfully warm for all weather, this sturdy, all-purpose yarn has excellent stitch definition and heirloom durability. It is ideal for cabled sweaters, textured stitch afghans, and everyday accessories. While careful hand washing will keep your stitches crisp and sweaters long-lived, Wool of the Andes also felts beautifully with warm water and agitation, creating a fabric even more warm and durable than crocheting alone.
Wool of the Andes Tweed gives you a whole new way to introduce texture to your handmade items. Our tweed combines a classic palette with earthy-colored flecks of Donegal tweed (viscose neps suspended in a very fine acrylic that allows them to be spun alongside the wool fibers). The tweedy Donegal neps add a rustic and traditional appeal to everything from Aran sweaters and cabled outerwear to outdoorsy hats and mitts.
