Woolfolk yarns combine the highest quality wool with ethical, sustainable practices. The fiber we use, Ultimate Merino®, doesn’t happen by chance, but by the innovative efforts of farmers to produce the very best wool fiber while being land stewards of the Patagonian Grasslands. Woolfolk brings this exquisitely soft and lustrous fiber in handknitting yarns that preserves the unique attributes of this luxurious wool.

The presence of coarse fibers in wool create “prickle” — the main obstacle to wearing and working with wool. Most wool products have a high percentage of over 30 microns - the diameter measure of a strand of fiber. Ultimate Merino® has a micron count of 17.5, and combines the hand of cashmere with the wear of merino. The long cylindrical fibers, with a surface that is smoother due to elongated, flat scales, reflect light and absorb dye better than elliptical fibers, resulting in lustrous yarns with deep and lasting hues.
“Ultimate Merino’s unique cylindrical structure and long flat scales allow the lustrous fiber to accept dyes with exceptional permanence and depth of color.”
The finest fibers deserve the best milling practices, and we work closely with our mills to develop yarns using innovative technology that highlights their attributes. Our family of yarns has grown with our company and range from delicate fingering weight to superbulky.
Far is a worsted weight, utilizing a unique chainette construction that gives structure and body to the fine Ultimate Merino fibers.
Tov and Tov DK both have 12 strands of tightly plied fibers for incredible stitch definition; Tov is a true Aran weight, and the Tov DK is the sister of Tov with the same characters but in a lighter weight.
Luft is a bulky, lightweight miracle; a chainette tube of the finest Pima cotton is filled with the Ultimate Merino fleece for a season-spanning, durable yarn that is a pleasure to work with and to wear.
Hygge is our superbulky yarn; a blend of superbaby alpaca, mulberry silk, and the Ultimate Merino fiber that is constructed with an almost felted finish.
Our newest yarn, Flette, utilizes modern technology to create a textured yarn that is 100% Ultimate Merino that is a delight to knit with, unlike boucles of the past.
Our pattern collections are wearable, clean and minimal; our focus is on design that is both timeless and modern. The quietly sophisticated color palette is inspired by the same sense of purpose; the curated range is on point with runway fashion while staying true to clean design.
Kristin Ford learned to knit from her grandmother, Katherine Temple Woolfolk, at age five and has never stopped. Her sense of design stems from her Danish heritage and career as an architect; Woolfolk is the articulation of these sensibilities.
