200g, 300g, 400g
Our Box of Balls does exactly what it says on the tin! This multicoloured selection of Super Chunky Yarn is so much fun. With a box of different coloured and sized balls, you can knit up a multicoloured scarf, socks, or sweater or make heaps of pompoms!
Our Merino wool is deliciously soft and ideal for encouraging you to get even more creative with your 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 the box of balls 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! 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!
BOX OF BALLS SIZE
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!
12mm Knitting needles (‘short’ 25cm)
Scarf Pattern – the pattern has instructions for one colour but you could simply introduce the colours as you get to them.
Sock Pattern – the pattern has instructions for various sock options but you can simply use the colours in random stripes (as pictured)
Pompom Makers – choose from four different sizes or go for a bundle. Perfect for so many different projects including some fun suggestions here.
Aquamarine, Black, Bright Pink, Bubble, Candy Floss, Cinnamon, Damson, Duck Egg, Emerald, Forest, Granite, Heather, Light Grey, Lilac, Mid Grey, Mink Blush, Mint, Mulberry, Mustard, Natural White, Navy, Pewter Brown, Ruby Red, Scarlet and Soft Peach
Please note that not all colours will be included in your box! We’ll put in a lovely selection of as many as we have though!
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 Merino yarn from happy sheep.
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 of 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. Merino 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!
