Our Chunky Yarn Guide | Woolly Mahoosive Yarn Inspiration | What Can You Make With Chunky Yarn
If you are new to chunky yarns, this is the chunky yarn guide for you. You may be familiar with standard yarn weights: Worsted, DK (Double Knit), Aran and Chunky, you may have even come across Super Chunky. Well, we are getting warmer with the latter of super chunky yarns! Our chunky yarns are off the scale!
The sorts of super chunky yarns that are more readily available through well known retailers tend to need a 10-12mm kitting needles or crochet hook. And that is where our scale of chunky yarns begins, at 10-12mm.
Below we explain our chunky yarns in order of chunkiness of yarn, from smallest to biggest and, most importantly (we think), give you some much needed chunky yarn inspiration so that you can see just what you can make with super chunky yarn!
Our littlest of our chunky yarns, our chunky merino is 100% pure, very soft and incredibly easy to knit or crochet. A great chunky yarn for beginners as you can really see the stitches very easily and your project will be a quick one because of the chunkiness of this yarn.
