What kind of yarn do you need for a hand knit blanket?

Why is chunky yarn so expensive?

The bulkier your yarn the more expensive they get. If you use chunky yarns, you may need more skeins. This is because most chunky and bulky yarns have short yardage per skein. But if you knit projects like blankets and scarves, you may use more affordable yarns.

How many pounds of yarn do I need for a chunky blanket?

For example, they may be able to identify that 4 pounds of wool can yield a 30” x 50” blanket, and the ball contains 28 yards per pound. Crunch those numbers, and know that you’ll have about 340 feet of chunky yarn in a single ball to yield a 30” x 50” blanket.

How many balls of wool do I need for a blanket?

For this you need two or three skeins of cotton or another, finer wool. In our collection we recommend the Bee Blanket, which is knitted with three skeins of our Pima cotton, or the blanket Dragonfly Blanket with only two balls of Pima cotton.
