Chunky is one of Malabrigo's classics made from Merino Worsted, fattened up, and triple plied to create this squishy treat of a yarn! Chunky’s nice smooth texture and semi-solid colors make it perfect for bulky cables and bold textures - or choose a variegated colorway and let the colors do the work!
Use for quick knits, accessories, outerwear, housewares, toys, cables, textured stitches.
Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball. This yarn is slightly felted before it is balled which has wonderful benefits for the consumer! This yarn is less likely to pill, break or shed so that you get years of use out of every project.
