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, sweaters and sweaters.

What our customers say about Wool

Sandra Keith

It's called Simple Wool because it's nothing fancy. It is just nice, squishy wool that knits up beautifully into all manner of clothing. I used mine for hats because I have so much family living in cold states and the winter has been so harsh that I thought more hats were in order. I will be getting more of this yarn in other colors. That's how happy I've been with it.

Sandra Keith

This bulky, squishy wool is a dream to knit with. I made hats with it and will make more as soon as I order other colors of this product. The yarn didn't split or roll or untwist. It was a joy to use.


This is as soft as a cloud! I’m using it for a baby sweater and have no qualms about my baby wearing wool because it’s THAT soft! I can’t wait to order more.


Beautiful colors and great quality. It's a simple wool with no snags or knots, makes it very easy to work with. Very satisfied with this purchase. :)

Joyce Shelley

I love the feel of this merino wool. It is soft and doesn’t split as I crochet. I can’t wait for my grandson to wear his new sweater. Thank you!

Vera Shivy

robyn atkinson

lovely soft wool, and great vibrant colours. Love it and will look stunning on my grandson


Super soft and lightweight wool. Absolutely will order more of this!


Such great wool to work with and is so cozy!

Sue Partridge

Beautiful! I'm usually highly allergic to any yarn that contains pure wool so have avoided knitting it for ever, but I coukdn't resist the colours in this. I was amazed! It is so soft, so fine, so warm and better than all those put together, it doesn't irritate. I love all the yarns I've purchased on hobbii but I'll be coming back to Dreams!!
