Love it! Beautiful, soft, great st definition, wonderful hand, very economical prices, great quality control. The only thing needed to make it perfect - make it machine washable. Made two sweater jackets with it and loved working with it and finished items!

I liked it very much. I knit up easily and felt good on my hands too. I didn't have any troubles with it at all.

I love Wool of the Andes. It was the first 💯% wool yarn I ever bought new, and right now I have enough in my stash ( a very large plastic bin full) to make about six sweaters. I have knit hats and cardigans for myself and hubby, as well as a few other things, and he declares his cardigan is the warmest one he owns.
I really like the color choices, and although it's not quivit or baby alpaca, it's a good quality of wool, in my opinion.

Loveit! I always wear it over at least a long sleeve tee shirt in the winter. I use it for hooking on canvas, too.

Love this yarn. Made a Raglan Shawl with it last summer. Washed it with Euclan, blocked it and it's been perfect to wear. Not a single pill anywhere. Price is very reasonable too. I used Firecracker Heather for the shawl.

I made my husband a pullover and he loves it. It was okay to work with. The stitch definition is very nice. I would buy it again.

Wool of the Andes is fine yarn! You'll love the way it works up. Cynthia

They do make a super wash WoTA. I haven't used it but I do use the non-super wash and really like it. It spit splices wonderfully so less ends to weave in. I find it soft after a wash in Soak or Euclan. To me it is a little bit lighter than worsted more like a heavy dk - but the price makes up for having to use more yarn.

I really liked working with this wool. I made my first hat with it. It is easy to work with.

Love this yarn. Use it all the time. I've felted mittens with it. Turned out fabulous.
