Super Chunky Merino and Merino/Silk Roving Yarns 200g hanks

£14.00 GBP

These super chunky yarns (often called Super-bulky in the U.S.A.) are manufactured here in Yorkshire - just down the road from Joe's Toes. This beautifully soft knitting yarn is also known as pencil roving yarn. We just wish you could feel it through your screen!

We have three qualities: 100% merino wool in solid colours, fabulous merino twisted colours and super-luxurious merino-silk blends. 

All are perfect for making our adult size slippers whether you knit or crochet. One hank is more than enough for the biggest crossover slippers. Also fantastic for felting and other crafts.

This yarn comes in very generous 200g hanks - that's just over 7 ounces. When knitting Joe's Toes crossover pattern we use relatively tight tension on 5.5mm needles. For garments and blankets we recommend 9-10mm needles.
