Winter is coming and Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick® is the perfect yarn for colder weather. It’s a super bulky version of Wool-Ease® and it has the feel, warmth and softness of wool, with the easy care of acrylic – it’s also perfect for those who are normally allergic to real wool!

This is a great yarn to use when you’re learning how to knit: it works up quickly and easily for projects like sweaters, jackets, vests, slippers, hats, and, of course, scarves.

Two of our most popular projects use this yarn: our Hunger Games-inspired cowl, the District 12 Cowl Wrap, and one of our most popular sweaters, the Striped Boyfriend Cardigan!

AND For the entire month of November, Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick® is 20% off the original price!

Find some inspiration in the collection below and for more free patterns, search Patternfinder – it’s time to get knitting and crocheting!
