Here you will find all the colourways in my shop that have an Aran yarn base in stock. Soft and durable, Aran wool is a popular choice. Knit yourself a warmer winter. Traditionally used for knitting jumpers and cardigans, they are great to use for afghans and oversized winter accessories like scarves and mittens. A wonderfully versatile base that’s great for beginners and enjoyed by experienced crafters alike, it knits up quickly too.
Often call worsted or 10 ply, Aran is actually a different weight. Slightly thicker than the US worsted weight, Aran wool can often be used as a substitute. To be sure you should check your tension and knit a test swatch. I recommend using 4.5 – 5.5mm needles and hooks, but as always you should check your pattern.
