Peruvian is a classic 4-ply yarn made of 100 % wool. The wool for Peruvian comes from Peruvian highland sheep, a crossbreed between corriedale and merino. The sheep graze on the Peruvian highlands, which contributes to the wool being extra fluffy and beautifully matt looking.
Peruvian is worsted spun, which makes the strand round and very even. This gives a beautiful stitch definition and therefore Peruvian is extremely suitable for cables, texture patterns and stranded knitting.
Peruvian is suitable for all kinds of projects – knitting or crochet for both children and adults, and the work can be felted. The fine assortment of colours only helps to give creativity free rein. Try Peruvian with our other yarn qualities as well. The combination of Peruvian and Tilia has become a classic over time.
Mulesing is not used on Peruvian highland sheeps.Weight: Aran
