200g, 300g, 400g
This multicoloured selection of Super Chunky Yarn by Lauren Aston Designs is so much fun. With a box of different coloured and sized balls, you can knit up a scarf or make heaps of pompoms. It’s deliciously soft and ideal for encouraging you to get even more creative with your woolly projects, just see where the mix of colours and quantities takes you!
Each box of balls will include a selection of different colours from our glorious range of 25 shades – we can’t guarantee they’ll all be included but we do promise to give you a fun and fabulous collection of colours that work well together. Each ball will be a different size/amount all adding up in total to either 200g, 300g or 400g (depending on the amount you choose), give or take 5% (as each ball is a different weight it won’t necessarily be bang on.) You might get some much bigger than others which is all part of the fun!
The idea for this box was originally born from me knitting a scarf with all the scraps I had leftover from other projects. It resulted in one of my favourite makes EVER and seemed to go down well on Instagram so I thought we’d make them available to you too! In the end I created a colourful and fun scarf that I absolutely loved making – it was so enjoyable selecting which colours to go in which order, choosing the ones that worked well next to each other and letting the amount of each ball dictate how long the section was. Due to the size of this yarn, the scarf knits up wonderfully quickly so you can whiz through projects in no time!
200g – equates to 1 hank of Super Chunky Yarn. Perfect for plenty of smaller projects such as a snood, a shorter scarf, hats, gloves, socks etc
300g – equates to 1.5 hanks of Super Chunky Yarn. With 300g you could easily make the above or a longer scarf, a Hot Water Bottle Cover.
400g – equates to 2 hanks of Super Chunky Yarn. With 400g you could knit a long scarf (like mine!), a cushion cover or a sleeveless jumper!

Like the rest of our yarn it’s 100% Merino wool which means it’s super soft and is best knit on 10mm-12mm needles. This Super Chunky yarn is used for 9 of the projects in my Knitting Book and nearly all of the patterns available on the site. You could easily make the patterns in multicolour from this box (maybe just knit your ends in so you don’t have to sew them in after!)
We source our yarn from happy sheep. Due to its many magical properties and the fact that Lauren is allergic to a lot of other wool, we only use Merino.
Merino sheep are not native to this country so the wool itself is provided from farms around the world, however we are very careful where we do source our fibre from. Our Merino is from South America and the South African Cape and we don’t buy from farms that mules their sheep.
The best quality wool comes from happy sheep. If a sheep has a poor diet and general poor health its fleece will suffer. Both the quality of life for the sheep and the quality of wool it produces are hugely important to us. We have strong relationships with our suppliers to ensure that we can trust them and their practices. Merinos shearers are all trained well to do it as efficiently and kindly as possible and the sheep are a lot happier once their 5kg fleeces are off!
