Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Bulky
WeCrochet has provided all the lovely Knit Picks yarns for these bag designs. For this bag, we’ll be using Wool of the Andes Bulky. This bulky weight yarn works up quickly, so it’s great for larger patterns. More importantly, the squishy wool felts beautifully!
Since this will be a felted bag, it’s very important to use a good wool for felting. Wool of the Andes Bulky also comes in a superwash variety. It’s a beautiful yarn for all sorts of cozy projects, but be sure not to use it for this one, or your bag won’t felt!
