Since so many of you turn to Wool-Ease Thick & Quick as your tried and true yarn for afghans and warm fall/winter accessories such as hats and scarves – we’ve updated the line to add a few new self-striping colors.  The new colors of Wool-Ease Thick & Quick were designed to create solid blocks of color, then striping blocks of color as you work, so that you won’t have to change yarns to create the effect.

The new colors of Wool-Ease Thick & Quick stripes in Hoosiers, Hoyas, Crimson, Tigers, Huskies, and Spartans make it easy for you to create fun, fast-finish projects to show off your team spirit and school colors.  Browse the color selections below and see if there’s a shade for your favorite team!

    why doesn’t anyone seem to make sport yarn in both Royal blue and bright orange – Fllorida Gator colors? I promised my granddaughter a scarf and can’t find the right colors in the same yarn.

      Hi SLB, don’t forget to click through to the other yarn we recommended, Hometown USA: http://www.lionbrand.com/yarns/hometownUSA.html
      Not only does it have a color called Gators in those shades, it also has blue and orange as solids. Enjoy!

        thanks. that’s a help although I was really looking for something in a light weight sport yarn. These are a little overwhelming for someone who’s very slender.

      If you use Hometown just make it with less stitches and long, they are always fun. If the pattern calls for 2 repeats just put in one or make the border thinner. That’s what i have done in the past.

        Are you suggesting using larger needles or hooks than the pattern calls for?
