super chunky yarn for mega knitting hand knitting

Yarn, Yarn, Great Big Yarn

Super-size knitting sticks and mega crochet hooks require BIG yarn, unless of course, you’re making a string shopping bag, and here you’ve found the perfect yarn at the perfect price.

This Chenille yarn is made from 100% polyester fiber, which means it is machine washable.  It is chunky enough to make BIG projects, but not so big that the project drowns the sofa upon which it sits!   Measuring approximately three quarters of an inch diameter, this Chenille Mega Yarn has a very soft ‘handle’ and weighs in at just over 8 ounces for twenty five yards and can happily bounce around in the tumble dryer without felting.

Scale up your art with these beautiful hand-crafted tools …or just hang them on the wall.  It’s all art, after all

All natural fibre, hard-wearing and as comfortable as a bowl of warm custard. How else can you describe these knitted house boots?

Every penny that Fibre Arts Bootcamp receives from any of the products in store goes directly to care for the rescued llamas and alpacas in The Llama Sanctuary. Rescuing and caring for llamas is FAB’s mission and Lynne is never idle when the health and well-being of these wonderful creatures is concerned. Come, dip your feet into little pockets of heaven.
