$8.80  From $4.80

Select Color:

Woolpower is a much loved quality here in the shop and with  Woolpower Big , you’ll get an extra thick alternative of the same wonderful quality.

Woolpower Big consists of 100% pure wool and is unbelievable snuggly. In order to keep it’s natural look, the yarn is loosely twined meaning thickness may vary a little. However in return, the yarn will be soft and easy to work with despite the thickness.

It will be fast on big needles and we recommend 8 mm, but experiment. Even though the yarn is burly, you’ll easily get a really beautiful and slightly rustic look in your projects.

Sweaters, light jackets, cardigans, accessories, crocheted or knitted: Will all be lovely and warm in  Woolpower Big .

Woolpower Big can be felted and is greatly suited to use for all forms of felt such as; slippers, blankets, pot-holders and other interior items. Needless to say, this can all be done with this bulkier version, and the colors between the two thicknesses match. 

The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (no. 1976-294). Find more information about the certification on the https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/.

I am totally on TEAM WOOLPOWER- if you had a team. I would make giant pompoms from WoolPower and I would lead all the knitters of the world in a cheer :-). I have tried a bunch of colors, this time deep mauve. The quality is awesome, the deepness of the color is just beautiful and it is spun so lightly that when knit into a hat, you can barely feel it on, and yet it is nice and warm and cozy. Also you get enough yardage you can save the ball and have enough to knit a striped hat with other leftover Woolpower.

I really enjoyed using this wool to make my husband a Range Cowl. The wool didn't split, feels substantial and sheepy, but isn't terrible as far as the "itch" factor. Not a ton of guard hairs/itchiness that would be off-putting. It felt really good on the hands as I knit.
I used a total of 7 skeins to make the col and mu husband was really happy with his cowl.
I will use this again on another outerwear project.

I got a few skeins of this to start learning nalbinding. It's going great. It felts easily, so joining yarn ends is quick and easy. It does come untwisted a bit while working, but that's pretty normal, especially with 1-ply yarn. I'm actually extremely pleased with how well it holds itself together; I'm fairly new to 1-ply and was expecting more trouble. It's also VERY soft.
Overall, very satisfied.

I got this wool in my lucky bag with wool. It is very soft and colour (lipstick) is bright. Currently I am knitting very nice slippers for my daughter and to work with this yarn is real pleasure. I hope it will come back in stock.

This isn't as chunky as I thought it would be, but that's my mistake and the yarn is great! I've started the Loopy blanket recommended for this yarn and it works up really well. I got colors 13 and 19 and they're so vibrant!
