How much jumbo yarn do you need to knit


How much jumbo weight yarn do you need for a chunky knit 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.
