In the Highlands of Peru, our premium pure wool yarn is created from the fleece of a crossbreed of Corriedale sheep and local Peruvian Highland sheep and is processed in a state-of-the-art mill. Due to this crossbreed, weather conditions, living at high altitudes and diet, the sheep develop a crimpy and durable wool, which we all love and know as our wonder yarn, Woolstok.
We hope you continue to love this fiber as we expand the palette with six new, nature-inspired shades in both warm and cool tones, bringing the total count to 27 colors. Along with the color release, we are excited to offer three new patterns for purchase - knit in these new colors, and available for download to add to your Woolstok pattern collection.

The breeding in Peru is small in scale compared to Argentina and Australia. A typical breeder in Peru will only own between 30 to 50 sheep.
The shearing season starts during Peru’s spring, which is the end of October - beginning of November, and will last until February, which is almost the end of the summer.
The fibers are sorted by hand based on length, fineness and color, by women who are specialized in the process and have learned the technique mostly from their mothers.
Woolstok is heathered, meaning that the yarn color is achieved by adding two or three bases of shades that are dyed and mixed in machines. Once the colors are mixed, the fiber is combed multiple times to create an even heather and unique color combinations.
This hat is a beautiful blend of cables and stockinette with just the right amount of slouch. Knit with two hanks of Woolstok, this warm and stylish hat is a great weekend project. Purchase the pattern
