The Wool Ease Thick and Quick yarn is a go-to yarn for whatever project you would like to make. I’ve used it for scarves, blankets, and most recently for my Learn to Crochet Series. But, it is also great for gloves, hats, anything where you want warmth and coziness in your projects.
It’s a super bulky yarn so a lot of projects that are out there and use this yarn tends to be winter projects. But, it doesn’t have to be. I’m curious as to what else can be done with this yarn.

Wool Ease Thick and Quick has approximately 70 colorways. It comes in solid, prints/stripes, and metallic colors. Plenty of options to choose from for your projects. You could use a solid color for your project and a print/stripe color for the same project… it’ll have a different look! That is awesome if you’re making holiday gifts!
The bonus bundle has 30 colorways available in solids and prints/stripes.

Hook Size/Needle Size
If you are crocheting, it is recommended to use the N/9mm crochet hook. You would need 6.6 single crochet stitches by 8 rows to make a 4” x 4” (10cm x 10cm) gauge. If you are knitting, it is recommended to use the U.S. 13/9mm knitting needles. You would need 9 stitches by 12 rows to make a 4” x 4” (10cm x 10cm) gauge.
Most of the colorways are 80% acrylic and 20% wool. But, other colorways will have other types of fibers mixed in its composition. So, look closely at the label if you are particular of the fibers that you use for your projects for one reason or another.
These yarns are machine washable and dryable. But, it’s recommended that you do not use bleach or that you use an iron to straighten out any creases as it can damage the fibers.
