Watch the instructional videos below to learn how to start and finish your arm knit blanket using 7 lbs of Merino Wool Roving.
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 64 (Bradford) count Merino. You can choose to slightly felt it (recommended) or use the roving as is.
Merino is one of the most vastly used wool 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 finer micron count (21.5) which creates a smooth and incredibly soft wool. Perfect for ARM KNITTED BLANKETS!

Notice the minimal Pilling and Shedding? We used Non Super wash Merino Wool so that we could slightly felt the roving to resist pilling over time. Some pilling will occur. Pilling can be expected more frequently in the Super wash Version.
I really enjoyed spinning this roving. My fiance bought this for me as a gift and I love It! It takes dye very well and it is a dream to spin. I will definitely buy it again!
I bought this wool for spinning, not for making a giant knit stitch blanket. The wool came in a very tightly wound skein. I was a little bit concerned that it might have felted so much that I wouldn't be able to spin it without a lot of preparation. However I needn't have worried. I unwound the skein and put it loosely in a large bag and it fluffed up nicely.. I have spun two spools of singles so far, and it's drafting well. I did pre-draft it before I spun it by tugging the roving along the length of it before I began, but I do that with all roving and top. Overall it is a good bargain for some lovely wool and I look forward to lots of happy hours spinning and knitting!!
This is a project I am going to try, I am just beginning to learn about knitting. Your instructions seem easy to follow, very clear, concise, and stated slow enough to follow. n excellent tutorial. Thanks!
The 7 pounds of merino wool I bought to make a arm knit blanket is great to work with. I would by this wool again!
I absolutely love the 7lb package of Merino Roving. While I am using it for another project, I am seriously considering another purchase to actually make a blanket.
