Freestyle yarn is soft, worsted weight, 100% new wool yarn. It knits up quickly and evenly, so Freestyle is a great choice for newer knitters and anyone who enjoys faster-paced projects. Although it's a soft, thick, high quality wool, Freestyle is also durable, light-weight and even machine washable. Very practical stuff, ideal for countless traditional aran and nordic designs calling for worsted weight wool. Ready to knit in 50g balls, with no winding necessary.
