this hobby is getting out of hand
WHAT IS THAT EVEN, WHAT ARE YOU KNITTING???????
i need to know what kind of wool that is and what type of needles because i have a mighty need to make myself a huge ass blanket
Size 120 Needles (50$+) and 100% Merino Super Chunky/Giant yarn (around 40$ per 40 yard skein). I made a 26”x56” throw with fringe which used four skeins in 7/8 hrs so 160$ + Needles + Shipping.
wow thank you so much for the info! It looks so good!
Another way to get ‘yarn’ like that is to shop for wool roving (there are lots of online fiber shops) that is intended for spinning! I have a feeling it would be a lot cheaper and you’d have some options for exactly what kind of fiber you want (for example, Leicester wools are going to be cheaper than Merino, and if you have a wool allergy, you can buy roving from non-animal sources, like bamboo or milk protein). Just be mindful that spinning fiber comes in different ‘formats’, so ‘pencil roving’ is probably going to be too thin to act as super-chunky yarn, and you probably don’t want to buy batts for this purpose, and some kinds of roving may require you to split them a bit until they’re as thick as you want. Also be aware that shopping from fiber shops can sometimes lead to taking up spinning as a hobby.
