Chunky Yarn

Super Chunky Yarn MERINO MINI - Merino Silk Blend

Limited luxurious collection of a chunky yarn Silk&Merino Mini! It is bulky hand spun lightly felted merino yarn with the addition of a silk. The combination of extra-fine merino wool with a silk makes an excellent effect of softness and shine. 

Perfect for chunky knitting, such as  next-to-skin chunky knitted clothes and super chunky blankets. Ideal for knitting snoods, scarves, sweaters, cardigans, hats, blankets and many more things. The yarn is very easy and pleasant  to knit with. Perfect for children!

IMPORTANT:
1. Our big yarn is lightly felted to fix its form. It allows it to be more practical, avoid pilling and breaking. But still it remains very soft and very pleasant. It is easier to knit with it.
2. We don not sell unspun wool roving as a chunky yarn. Our yarn is 100% hand spun. 
3. For this yarn we use only 18 microns merino wool from Italy. It is the best and premium merino quality in a market.
