Snuggle in with your own handmade cozy Arm Knitted Blanket, Chunky Scarf or Cowl using our Jumbo Yarn!
Our 7 lb special of Super Soft Dyed Merino Wool Jumbo Yarn is essentially unspun roving, meaning this yarn is super bulky and ideal for making arm knitted blankets among many other fun projects! Ideal for extreme knitting, a technique using giant needles and thick yarn to create high quality pieces such as blankets, throws, cowls, hats, and more!
Our Jumbo Yarn can be used for arm knitting and finger crochet and can be hand felted or machine washer felted. Items made with this yarn should be hand washed and laid flat to dry. Pre-felting the roving before knitting will reduce pilling in items made.
We send our Jumbo Yarn to you in one continuous length - 7 lbs of fiber.

This roving will ship to you in ONE CONTINUOUS piece, free of vegetable matter, cleaned with carded preparation in roving form, ready to use on your GIANT pair of needles or your arms! You will be amazed at the high quality and extremely soft texture of this Merino. You can choose to slightly felt it (recommended) or use the roving as is.
Merino is one of the most vastly used wools in the industry because of its incredible warmth to weight ratio. Meaning it weighs less and warms more, while having moisture wicking properties and a fine micron count (23) which creates smooth and incredibly soft projects. Perfect for ARM KNITTED BLANKETS!
This was my first time arm knitting I was very pleased with the quality of the wool. My blanket is coming along quite nicely, in fact, I’ve already placed a second order! I fully intend to make additional purchases in the future.
