Jumbo Merino

Giant Yarn

£50.00£360.00

Colour *

Gorgeously soft unspun Merino wool in it’s largest form, this giant Merino wool yarn is perfect for all sorts of chunky knitting projects.

Delivery within the UK is free for all orders over £60 and costs £4 for orders under £60. Speedy delivery & in-store collection available too!

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.

COLOURS AVAILABLE

Natural White, Oyster, Buttermilk, Soft Peach, Mink Blush, Pewter Brown, Candyfloss, Rose, Bright Pink, Crimson, Scarlet, Ruby Red, Cinnamon, Pumpkin, Coral, Lilac, Amethyst, Damson, Aubergine, Shadow, Midnight, School Blue, Denim, Turquoise, Aquamarine, Teal, Baby Blue, Light Grey, Mid Grey, Granite, Charcoal, Mint, Lime Green, Laburnum, Mustard, Olive, Forest, Jungle, Moss.

**Delivery time will depend on whether I have the colour in stock at the time or not. If I don’t then please allow around 2 weeks and if so then you should receive your wool within 1 week. Please feel free to get in touch to see which colours I have in stock at the time.
