Is KnitPicks yarn good?
This yarn is one of the most inexpensive 100% wool yarns I have found. I’ve used Wool of the Andes for years because it felts so nicely. Knit Picks makes some other really nice and fairly inexpensive yarns. I made a pair of socks years ago out of their sock yarn and they are still in good shape.
