Chunky Wool

A favourite amongst knitters, chunky yarn is best used to produce warm and comforting clothing and various other designs that suit heavy weights and large stitching. There is no greater feeling than wrapping oneself up all snug and cosy in a chunky cardie or a sumptuous sweater during the chilly winter evenings. Versatile and unique in a range of soft textiles and rich colours, chunky wool is perfect for a wide range of knitting projects from jumpers and sweaters, to shawls, hats, scarves, gloves and socks, and any other essentials to keep your hands and heart warm throughout the frosty months.

Ideal for novice knitters and those who wish to learn how to knit; chunky yarn is easily manageable and produces stunning results at a surprisingly fast rate. Due to its thickness, some advanced knitters find that they prefer working with chunky wool and find it easier to knit with than lightweight yarns, such as Lace wool. A standard chunky yarn gives 14 stitches to a 10cm square on 7.5mm knitting needles and as the name would suggest, generates chunky fabrics.  The quick and simple patterns available for Chunky yarns are extremely useful for those feeling brave and wanting to try knitting something new. Experimenting with this durable wool provides easy knitting gratification and is incredibly rewarding. Available in an array of magnificent colours and multicolours from soft pastels, to vivid brights and sophisticated neutrals, chunky wool can be used for all of the family.

When used in knitting, chunky yarn traps a considerable amount of air and this means that pretty much any type of chunky yarn is warm, regardless of its fibre content. Where Cashmere chunky is softly elegant and therefore ideal for making luxurious scarves, fluffy Mohair is more commonly known for its strength, and so, is deemed perfect for extravagant throw blankets. At Black Sheep Wools, we offer an extensive variety of the most beautiful chunky yarns, so why not explore and let our wool warm you from the tips of your toes today!
