Merino wool is amazing to work with, it dyes really well so is available in a huge range of colours, it’s a luxuriously soft wool that is beautiful on the skin, and it’s a warm, natural fiber that retains heat whilst still remaining breathable (hence I can still knit in Summer without overheating!) It comes with a higher price tag than some other wools but is completely worth it.
You can get up to 10kg of wool to create a giant blanket, simply select the amount you’d like (using the below calculations) ‘Add to cart’ then select the colour you’d like before checking out.
HOW MANY KG?
As a number of factors can effect the size of a finished piece of knitting please note that all the following calculations are approximate and are only intended as a guide. The following calculations are based on knitting with the Giant Knitting Needles also available on the site – 1kg of this wool will knit up to around 0.5 square metres, therefore –
- 1kg = approx 50cm x 50cm blanket
- 2kg = approx 100cm x 100cm blanket
- 3kg = approx 150cm x 100cm blanket
- 4kg = approx 150cm x 130cm blanket
- 5kg = approx 160cm x 155cm blanket etc etc
If you order more than one kg of wool, whenever possible they will come all together as one big ball but is not guaranteed.
