Super Chunky Yarn
Super chunky wool is, in every respect, simply superb. Absolutely perfect for learning how to knit with due to its size, this yarn is a must when it comes to buying wool as a beginner. Super chunky garments grow at an impressively quick rate and luckily, any mistakes that you may make whilst knitting with this yarn are relatively easy to spot. Currently being considered as an extremely fashionable textile of choice, super chunky yarn is in popular demand around the world.
Ranging from autumnal shades to vivid brights, super chunky yarn is available with contrasting and toning slubs skilfully twisted into its lavish fibres. A super chunky yarn which combines both wool and acrylic will benefit immensely from the properties of both materials. As acrylic is a polymer which is very resilient, and odour and mildew resistant, this makes it a good insulator. Wool, on the other hand, contains lanolin, which is gloriously gentle against the skin and has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. Garments knitted with wool and acrylic are consequently brilliant as they do not need to be laundered as often. Meanwhile, the combination of alpaca and acrylic makes for a luxuriously resilient blend. Alpaca has hypoallergenic properties, which makes it an ideal yarn for knitting soft baby clothes and beautiful blankets. An example of such wonderfully produced wool would be the Rico Creative Twist Super Chunky. Cleverly combining soft with chunky undoubtedly gives knitters the best of both worlds.
Designed to be used with 10-15mm needles, super chunky wool produces comfy clothing that suits heavy weight patterns, particularly inspired by that desired homely feel one craves when out and about in winter weather.
