Work it in Wool-Ease: 7 Designs to Knit and Crochet

wool ease

Wool-Ease® is one of those go-to yarns that you can reach for again and again over the years. Weighing in at a CYC #4 (i.e medium or worsted weight) makes it perhaps the most versatile size yarn. Add in the benefit of easy care (machine wash and dry) and you have a yarn suitable for accessories and garments for the entire family.

The fiber detail is slightly different across the different style of Wool-Ease®, as you can see below.
Solids, Heather, and Twist: 80% Acrylic, 20% Wool
Sprinkles, Wheat, Mushroom, and Rainbow Mist: 86% Acrylic, 10% Wool, 4% Other
Glitter/Multi: 78% Acrylic, 19% Wool, 3% Other
Frosts: 70% Acrylic, 20% Wool, 10% Polyamide
