First project with arm knitting chunky blanket.

This was my first time using this yarn and arm knitting. It was wonderful! The wool is so soft, I'm afraid to felt it. Is felting necessary? The blanket is beautiful and now my kids each want one.

Product Details

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. 

We send our Jumbo Yarn to you in one continuous length - 7 lbs of fiber. 
21.5 Micron Merino Wool Roving
7 lbs is approx 170 yards.
Wraps Per Inch = 1
Stitches per Inch = 3
Recommended Needle Size = 30-40 mm
Length = 54.6 yards per meter

What you can make:
2-3 lbs of Jumbo Yarn will make a Chunky Scarf
4-5 lbs of Jumbo Yarn will make  30 x 50 Inches ( Cowls, Pet Beds, etc)
6-7 lbs of Jumbo Yarn will make 48 x 48 Inches (Blanket, Throw, Rug, etc)

Your results may vary depending on Gauge and Tension.

17 Best Ideas about Arm Knit Blankets




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 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.
