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 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.

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 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 (21.5) which creates smooth and incredibly soft projects. 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.
Hand knitted a beautiful blanket from the Marino roving for a gift. Wonderful to work with.
This merino roving is perfect for arm knitting! This is the second bag I’ve ordered. Making blankets for Christmas gifts. The wool is soft, comes in one long piece, and my blankets are approximately 36 x 48. I also split the roving so I get 2 blankets out of one 7 pound bag.
This roving is beautiful and will make fabulous arm knitted blankets. It is soft and strong, felts easily. I loved it so much I ordered another 7 lbs!
