"Wool of the Andes" by Knit Picks, a 100% Peruvian wool, is available in colors ranging from cloud to coal. A worsted weight, "Wool of the Andes" is hand washable and would work well for felting, as well as tote bags, sweaters, caps, scarves, afghans, baby items and heavier garments.

I really like this yarn, I am using it to show off fancy stiches in a sampler afghan with good stich definition. It is soft and seems of high quality for the fantastic price. My only beef is the three dark bluish-green hues that look almost identical.

This yarn is surprisingly soft for a standard wool (as opposed to a merino), and particularly for something so affordable. It isn't soft to the touch per se, but it doesn't give me the pricklies, and I'm very sensitive. I probably wouldn't wear it directly against the skin, but it would be great for a sweater you wear over a shirt or maybe even a camisole. It's much softer than a pricey tweed by a designer-who-shall-remain-nameless Also, it felts beautifully, even the natural. (Some light-colored wools don't felt well.)

This yarn was easy to work with...but I am disappointed in the color differences I have noticed between the website and what I actually purchased, specifically with the grass and blue bonnet colors. Lesson learned, I will buy a color card for this yarn before my next purchase.
