Super Chunky Yarn

Super chunky garments are very fashionable at the moment; this is one reason knitters choose super chunky knitting yarn over other varieties. Sirdar Big Softie Super Chunky yarn comes in 50g balls and is 51% wool and 49% acrylic. Thanks to the size of the wool, it is very easy to knit with and garments can be created quickly for upcoming occasions.

The Sirdar Company has a long history of excellence. The spinning company was founded in 1880 by siblings Tom and Henry Harrap. At that time, the yarns were made with 100% wool. When Lord Kitchner, who is famous for the ‘Your Country Needs You’ poster, became Sirdar of Egypt, the patriotic Harrap brothers decided to give the title of Sirdar, meaning leader, to their knitting yarn. The original company was located in Ossett but a decade later, it relocated to Alverthorpe in Wakefield, where it continues to flourish.

A super chunky knitting yarn which combines wool and acrylic will benefit from the properties of both materials. Acrylic is a polymer which is very resilient. It is also odour and mildew resistant. Both wool and acrylic are good insulators and wool contains lanolin, which is gentle on skin and has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. This means that garments knitted with wool and acrylic need to be laundered less often. Sirdar Squiggle Super Chunky yarn comes in balls with a great variety of mixed co-ordinating colours which result in fun fashionable knits.

Rico Creative Twist Super Chunky yarn combines the luxury of alpaca with the resilience of acrylic. Alpaca has hypoallergenic properties, which makes it an ideal yarn for knitting soft baby clothes. Combining soft with chunky gives the knitter the best of both worlds.

When it comes to choosing a super chunky knitting yarn, Black Sheep Wools has an extensive collection, giving you, as a knitter, the best choice of material and size.
