Highland Wool is a classic, lovely wool yarn spun from 100% very high quality wool and is the perfect choice if you don’t want to compromise.
The wool comes from the Peruvian highlands, which is one of the most remote parts of the world. A special cross between Merino and Corridale sheep thrive tremendously in the tough landscape - and the special climate and thin air makes it possible to produce a completely wonderful and unique type of wool.
Highland Wool is a light, soft wool yarn that easily absorbs moisture, keeping you nice and warm. The combination of the strong fibers and the exquisite softness lends itself to most projects. And the wool is durable enough to last for many years, even with frequent use.
Highland wool would look extra good in structural or jacquard knitting and is easy to work evenly. The yarn has a fine structure which is only enhanced by the beautiful color spectrum that both includes solid and mottled colors.

When my order arrived, my first impression was that it was stiff and I wasn't sure if it would make a nice sweater. It felt stiff as I knitted it, too. But when I blocked it, it became really soft to the touch yet still retained good structure. I really like it against my skin. For reference, it's not as soft as the now discontinued Evergreen yarn (fingering weight organic merino wool), but very smooth compared to Mayflower Easycare Classic (DK weight superwash merino) and Cascade 220 (worsted weight Peruvian Highland Wool).
I've purchased 3 colors so far: Artichoke Melange, Stone, and Ash Tree Bark. All 3 colors are darker and less yellow in person than they are in the product photo. It's just as well that there isn't a wider color selection, because my stash is already too full.
Just got my first order of Highland Wool that I got on discount with Bingo. (This is a lot of fun and great discounts each week) I could not wait to start a project with the Highland Wool. It is so soft and not scratchy at all. I am currently making a hat with Diablo Wild Print lace yarn added. So pretty and soft. I will definitely buy this yarn again.
This is my first purchase from Hobbi. Thankyou for the BlackFriday deal! I am making a felted beret from Night Sky and will post a picture when done. The felting (double strand) came out beautifully and now I am ordering another color to try a single strand beret. This is soft and easy to knit yarn.
Really pretty depth of colour, wonderful texture and feels quite sturdy. I've only started a swatch with it but I am already excited about the quality of the yarn. Also the company was very good about getting replacement yarn to me quickly when my original package had been damaged!
This was my first purchase from hobbii and I am very pleased with the yarn. The color, the texture, the softness and the quality are all amazing! Even my friend who is a long time knitter and yarn connoisseur says this is an excellent yarn. Thank you hobbii.com!!
