We love Loopy Mango ‘Big Loop’ chunky wool but at this stage won't be bringing any stock in for a while. We do still have some smaller balls (a great size for scarf or beanie) here, some great Loopy Mango wooden knitting needles here and also some of the fabulous lighter weight but still chunky wool here.
For all other things Loopy Mango check out the global website here.
Why's it so great? It's unique in the world of chunky yarn - it’s the largest available spun chunky wool at around 1cm thick. It feels just like a giant version of standard wool - it’s softer and lighter than a felted chunky yarn and holds together better than roving (combed, but unspun wool). So many other cheaper options end up being more like a felted wool and that makes them super heavy, or they are more like roving which pills up almost straight away.
For ideas and tips check out the online tutorials here (the best tip for chunky knitting is to keep your tension super loose: good advice for life in general) - and have fun!
Recommended knitting needles:
Your best results will come with using a circular chunky knitting needle (no losing stitches off the back) and we have some beautiful Loopy Mango knitting needles to choose from - Size 36 (2cm diametre) is great for Scarves & Beanies, Size 50 (2.5cm) are recommended for throws and for extra super-sized knitting we have the giant Size 100's (3.5cm): all can be found here .
We also have two giant sized crochet hooks: Size U (2.5cm) and Size Y (3.5cm) available here
How many skeins (balls) do you need:
One ball is approximately 1.134kg/40oz and 115 metres (125 yards) long. One ball is enough to make a 70 x 100cm throw. To make a bigger throw you will need more skeins:
Please note - due to hand made nature of this product variations in colour and thickness are possible. We recommend always purchasing enough yarn in your order to complete a project.
