Lion Brand Alpine Wool Yarn
Alpine Wool offers a slightly different option for felters with a 100% wool chunky-weight roving yarn. Unlike normal 3 or 4-play yarns, roving yarn is only loosely twisted, which makes it an easy choice for felting projects. As a chunky yarn, this yarn is also heavier and works well for projects that need a thicker yarn. Most craft stores carry this brand, and the yarn might be considered a bargain brand, along with Lion Brands Fishermans Wool yarn. Unfortunately, the brand is only available in a limited number of colors, and two colors--oatmeal and barleydo not have enough wool to make a good felting yarn. The yarn comes in 3 oz. skeins, but each skein has only 93 yards, so be sure to get enough for the entire project.
