Fabulous super chunky felted merino wool with a very soft handle perfect for knitting. Playing with a bowl of this balls of larger than life squishy balls makes us feel like a cross between Alice in Wonderland and the Borrowers.
After a fruitless search for a supplier of super chunky wool for her giant knits, Melanie Porter developed a method to create a hand-spun, felted yarn which creates dramatic giant knits, and yet soft enough for luxurious homewares and clothing. 500g will knit a hat and snood, or long scarf. 1 kg will knit a small rug, 1.5kg a small throw and 2kg will knit a large blanket. We recommend using 25mm needles.
Due to the handmade nature of this product slight variations in colour and thickness in the yarn are possible.
