Wool yarn is often the first type of yarn that people think of when it comes to knitting or crocheting. Wool is a warm fiber that is great for sweaters, jackets, hats and scarves. The range of wool yarns available is wide—from hearty Icelandic wool to soft merino wool. 

Superwash wool is a great option for baby projects and afghans since you can wash these yarns in a machine without felting your project. With so many options, including blends with other fibers, wool yarn is a great option for many projects.
