This amazingly soft and Hypoallergenic Merino Wool is perfect for many giant knit projects - it can be used on giant needles or for arm-knitting.
Merino wool is a beautiful and luxurious wool. It's a soft, tactile natural fibre from Merino Sheep with many amazing properies such as being hypoallergenic, temperature regulating and fire resistant. It is a wonderful yarn to work with.
When knitting with Merino wool you do need to be gentle with it and careful with your tension as it can pull apart (if that happens just place the two ends together and roll it together to help bond them) please note that it is not a fault with the wool if it pulls apart, when used correctly it rarely happens.
1kg of wool, when knitted up equates to around 0.5 Square Metres when using the Giant Knitting Needles from my storefront. If you order 2kg or more, where possible it will arrive as 1 ball and will knit approximately 1 Square Metre, 3kg will knit up to around 1.5 square meters and so on.
Over 30 colours available: Natural white, Oyster, soft peach, pewter brown, mink blush, damson, bright pink, candyfloss, lilac, amethyst, aubergine, shadow, midnight, school blue, demin, baby blue, charcoal, granite, mid grey, light grey, teal, turquoise, mint, coral, ruby red, scarlet red, lime green, mustard yellow, laburnum, olive green, and forest green.
Lead times differ as I can't keep all the colours in stock all the time but I try to get all orders out within 2 weeks. I have another listing for the range of colours I keep stocked if you're in a rush and please feel free to get in touch with me to check what's currently in stock if you don't want to wait.
If you still can't find the one you're after just contact me via the 'Ask Seller a Questions' button and I'm sure I can get hold of it for you.
Giant Knitting Needles and instructions are available on another listing as part of the 'Knit Your Own Blanket Kit'. The needles are perfect for this wool and the instructions include a pattern with stitch ideas and information on how to process the wool - which I highly recommend doing to increase the quality and life span of your knitted goodies.
100% Merino Wool
(Giant knitting needles - are made from Pine Wood)
Each ball is hand wound, if you order more than 1 kg I try to keep it as a continuous length but it cannot be guaranteed.
