Wool Clasica

Oh Wool Clasica, you are so beautiful. We have a skein of each color here in this basket and sososo much more in the shop.

This yarn comes from a cooperative of artists in Uruguay that has been empowering women by providing them with a source of income since 1968. You can read more about the story and the yarn here. I love supporting this company, and I love their yarns.

This blanket, in particular, has always stayed with me. Completed in 2011, it is still the reigning champion of favorites for this yarn on Ravelry. It seems there is no pattern, but it's just strips sewn together. So good.  
Wool Clasica is great for blankets, scarves, hats, sweaters, felting, colorwork...all of the things, really. Its rustic texture and rich colors really add interest to the yarn, and the knitted fabric is thick and squishy. We have so much in the shop right now! Come on in and see this beautiful yarn for yourself.
