Skinny Andean Wool

If you love the happy colours made from KAOS Yarns but want a thicker yarn to work with - you are in luck! Skinny Andean wool will satisfy your colour urges but work up quicker than the KAOS Soft Organic Merino, or Organic Brushed Alpaca. It is a DK weight yarn with a soft, one-ply spin.

Spun from fibres from the natural crossbreed Merinos and Corriedale sheep that graze in the Andes 2500-5000 m above sea level. This yarn is made in Peru at a family owned and Fair Trade certified mill, ensuring good conditions for animals, people and the environment. 

This 100% Peruvian Wool maintains good stitch structure and definition no matter if you are wanting a loose or tight stitch. Exploring this yarn's texture possibilities will be a treat! We could see it work up into cozy sweaters or vests, hats or scarves, mittens or balaclavas, and on and on...

If you like fuzziness, try using this yarn stranded with the complementary Organic Alpaca to get an Aran to Bulky gauge.
