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 many possibilities.
The Many Characteristics of 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.
Many Possibilities with Wool Yarn
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 and sweaters.

Great colors! Haven't started my project, but I expect it would be nice for my fair isle knitting. I have searched your online shop for some solid -color wool yarn to match this yarn but I didnot find any. Maybe you guys can give me some suggestions?
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.
I love this wool! I am making a woman's (3X) shrug but instead of the 3 mm crochet hook recommended here I am using a 5 mm hook. It is a bit harder to work the stitches but the effect is stunning.
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!
Beautifully soft wool! And great value for Merino! I look forward to start my project! 👍🏻😀
Love your organic wool! I received them in Boston in less than a week! Thank you
Gorgeous wool, can’t wait to knit with it!
Beautiful wool! In chose Crips Autumn and very happy with the color. I have yet to begin my project but I wait with baited breath to use the yarn. I am also amazed at the delivery! I am in the US and received it in about 2 weeks (which is very impressive compared to the month I thought I was going to have to wait). I adore the packaging as well. It came undamaged! With a small candy inside. Half the fun was just opening the package! I highly suggest this yarn and company!
