Use it for:
Sweaters, accessories, you name it! Woolstok is our favorite sweater yarn. We find it pills less with a tighter gauge, so take that into consideration when planning your projects.
We think Woolstok is particularly well suited for knitting Icelandic sweaters as well--big skeins of lovely neutrals, and rainbow colors for beautiful cuffs and yokes! The 50g skeins are perfect for colorwork yokes which often don't require a full 100g skein.
