These are the 100% wool options - or at least they have 75% wool and then another natural fiber mixed in (like yak, or linen, etc) . Some of them are machine washable (superwash) and I've noted that where applicable. If you prefer to search other ways for yarn, you can look by gauge or by distributor/designer too by clicking here
