Jumbo Yarn


Colour *

The perfect middle weight yarn, knit on 25mm needles creating an amazing chunky texture.

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!

The new Jumbo Yarn is a lovely middle ground for chunky without being gigantic. Ideal for both soft furnishings and accessories, it grows really quickly and the Jumbo 25mm Knitting Needles (also available on the site) are easy to use once you get going – Like the Giant Knitting Needles (40mm) they can feel a little clumsy to begin with due to the larger size but you soon get used to the feel of them and then you’ll be away, whipping up scarves, cushions and santa hats in no time!

I used this Jumbo yarn for 5 makes from my Super Chunky Knits book, it’s really great for a wide range of projects and it’s great size means it’s chunky, speedy and a good wearable gauge.

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.

Comes in balls of 500g (approximately)
