Clever Crafter’s Guide to Wool

Clever Crafter's Guide to Wool on Katie Crafts;

Whether you are a crochet or knit beginner or a yarn aficionado, it’s always fun to learn new things about the most important supply in your stash. One of the best kinds of yarns to use (in my opinion) is wool, so here are some stats and facts about where wool around the world comes from, as well as some tips on the different types!

This very helpful infographic about wool comes to us courtesy of Tom Melby, owner and director of animal shearing equipment company Clippers Ireland. Thank you so much for sharing!

I’m currently working on two additions to my crocheted amigurumi fruit bowl: a smiley orange and a happy pear. Stay tuned for both those patterns!

What is your favorite kind of yarn to use?

  1. Wow. I seriously just learned a TON about wool! I can’t wait to see your finished amigurumi fruit bowl and all that will be in it. I already know it will be awesome. I don’t knit or crochet, but my daughter does some knitting. I don’t know what kind of yarn she used before, but I know it was super soft. Now I’m wondering….

  2. Very interesting! I like knitting scarfs and did not know how many sheep I needed for a scarf 🙂

  3. Cute way to learn! ^.^
