Newbie mistake? Peruvian instead of Merino

I just read the label of the skeins I bought - it says it’s Peruvian. The pattern called for Merino. Have I made a mistake or will the Peruvian felt okay?

I don’t think so. Merino is a breed of sheep. It’s a softer fleece than other breeds. From what I’ve seen shopping online there are a lot of Merino sheep in Peru. I just bought Peruvian Merino sock yarn from Knitpicks, so I think what you have very well may be merino, just imported from Peru.

As long as it’s wool, it will felt.

As long as it’s not superwash wool it will felt. :wink:

Uh that’s right.

:teehee: :hug:
