Yarns We Love: Lion Brand Wool-Ease

Versatile, soft AND affordable! Find out why we’re crushing on Wool-Ease.

When you’re looking for the perfect yarn to knit something washable, durable AND affordable, look no further than Lion Brand Wool-Ease worsted. Wool-Ease has been a staple yarn for knitters for decades. It comes in a versatile range of colors so you can easily find your favorite shade, or mix and match to create colorwork, stripes, contrast ribbing and more!

If you’ve ever accidentally shrunk a wool sweater in the washer, then you know how useful a washable yarn can be. Wool-Ease is not only machine washable, but you can toss it in the dryer, too! We love the flexibility of this 80% Acrylic/20% Wool blend for long-lasting sweaters that are as easy to care for as they are to wear. (And Wool-Ease is perfect for affordable gift knitting!)

Wool-Ease has terrific stitch definition with plump, round strands that create beautiful stitches – whether you’re knitting in stockinette stitch, lace or in texture.  This workhorse yarn is super soft against the skin, making it an ideal candidate for sweaters that you’ll want to wear for many years to come.
