Wool Yarn in all weights at Fabulous Yarn
Many people, when they think "wool", think of the classic English style your mom knit with, along with merino, but wool also includes cashmere, angora and mohair as well as several other oddities like qiviut. Because wool is naturally crimped, it is bulkier than other fibers. This also helps it hold air which makes it a natural insulator, great for staying warm and protectinu from from fire (yes firemen and soldiers wear wool). Native people have used wool in clothing for millenia, with the earliest use of wool clothing found about 5000 years ago, and wool becoming a major economic industry during the Middle Ages.
The wool yarns at Fab are among the finest and most innovative in the world, preferred by knitters who steer away from synthetic fibers. Here at Fab we are always looking for great new yarns that we can offer you at a great value. Of course some of these custom made fibers are in very limited supply—we make a point of working with customers to make sure they can find the right amount to make their project, in some cases with special orders or even special custom colors and blends. We also carry washable wool and organic wool.
While most common wool originates in Australia and China, our specialty wool yarn comes from other parts of the world, such as Malabrigo, who raise their own sheep in Uruguay, or Rowan, the British classic, here at Fab with their undyed boucle and recycled yarns. We even have a local organic wool yarn from Tivoli's Awesome Farms!
