Brand Spotlight: Woolfolk


Woolfolk Yarn, named after the founder’s grandmother Katherine Temple Woolfolk, is by far one of our favorite brands that we carry at 3 Wild Sheep. Not only is it wonderful to work with, but it is also made using sustainably produced Ultimate Merino® wool from the Patagonian grasslands. The unique structure of Ultimate Merino® creates a yarn that is luscious and smooth like a cashmere, yet washes and wears like a standard merino.

Their yarn selection ranges from fingering to super bulky, and their color palette boasts deliciously wearable earth tones.

As if the yarn itself wasn’t incredible enough, they also produce some of the best patterns on the market. Their style is both timeless and modern, and fashionable yet comfortable enough for your everyday wardrobe.

 If you’re new to knitting with Woolfolk Yarn, here are a few recommendations to get you started:

 

FAR

We love Far for anything requiring worsted or DK weight yarn like scarves, sweaters or hats. This yarn is so soft and cozy, you’ll want to knit a whole winter wardrobe! Try Color 07 for a beautiful caramel shade, or a more vibrant pop with Color 27. Also, feast your eyes on this deep maroon, Color 12!

Tynd

A fingering weight with a tight twist, Tynd is our go-to for lighter sweaters and wraps, baby cloths and hats. Try blending two colors together for a beautiful marled effect! We're drooling over the softness of Color 31 and Color 34, and Color 26 is the perfect charcoal for your next pattern.

Many of our most recent projects have been created using Woolfolk – we just can’t get enough! If you have any projects you’d like to share that you’ve knitted or crocheted using Woolfolk yarn, we would love to see and share on our social media pages! Please send photos to [email protected].
