How much big yarn do you need for a chunky knitting projects?

How much jumbo yarn do you need to knit


How much chunky knit yarn do you need to knit a blanket?
One kg skein of a jumbo wool yarn makes approximately 75×75 cm (ca. 30×30 inches) square in 2-3 hours. Use 25 mm needles or more, knit loosely to get the perfect result.

How many jumbo wool yarn is needed for blanket_size chart

Tender hand wash is possible for small items (beanie, scarf, cowl). Cool water, no agitation, lay flat to dry.

Specialized dry cleaning is recommended for big pieces (sweater, blanket).

Washing machine is also possible (using cold water only, delicate/wool cycle, without agitation, air dry only). But note that washing in a machine will make yarn thinner, harder to touch, some softness will be lost.
