Item details

This beautiful and luxurious skein is made with 100% un-spun merino wool, 23 microns. With a wonderfully soft and bouncy texture, the yarn is perfect for an iconic statement blanket, chunky scarf, rug or whatever your imagination can dream up. Your wool will come in one bundle if more than one amount is ordered. If you have any special requests, just send us a message and we'll be happy to help :)

We currently have some selected items on SALE! (We do love a sale!). You can find all of our items currently available here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/mycosyLondon?ref=seller-platform-mcnav§ion_id=22882639

*Just in case you maybe wondering, the lovely colour in the listing is 'Seal' :)


This chunky yarn is perfect for extreme giant knitting as well as arm knitting that luxurious homemade item you keep forever. It really is a joy to work with resulting in beautiful soft items every time.

1 stitch = 3 inches long

2 stitches = 10cm

1 kilo = 40 meters

If you’re looking to use the yarn for a lovely cosy blanket or accessory, we recommend using 40mm needles (which will soon be available from our shop) or even arm knitting for the following dimensions:

Chunky cowl – 0.5kg (1.1lb)
Super chunky scarf – 1kg (2.2lb)
Blanket 30 x 50 inches — 2 kg (4.4 lb)
Blanket 48 x 48 inches — 3 kg (6.6 lb)
Blanket 58 x 58 inches — 4 kg (8.8 lb)
Blanket 64 x 80 inches — 6 kg (13.2 lb)

As the yarn is un-spun, the natural movement of the yarn may mean measurements may change slightly. With such luxurious yarn, it’s important to treat it with care to preserve it’s quality and lifespan. Some shedding may occur.


We're sorry if your colour of choice isn't available, unfortunately, Etsy only allows a certain amount of colours to chose from. Please choose 'Other' in the drop down menu, using the notes section at check out to let us know which colour you would like. Alternatively, just send us a message and we'll be more than happy to help :)


Prized for their beautifully soft coats, Merino sheep tend to live in harsh environments. Battling with tough conditions our friends have wonderful coats to protect them. Not only can keep warm when wet but their wool can regulate body temperature and is breathable to wick away moisture (keeping cool and dry in the summer) and lightweight and warm in the winter.

Thinking about making a baby blanket or suffer from allergies? Merino wool yarn is perfect as it has antibacterial properties and is hypoallergenic. Dust and dirt are attracted to static which wool doesn't attract. Those who suffer from allergies to house-mites or dust are big fans of the natural fibres.


We’re passionate about the quality of our wool and our fluffy friends so you’ll be happy to know that all of our yarn comes from non-mulesed sheep. Sourced from either South Africa (Cape) or South America depending on availability. Merino sheep coats never stop growing and its a necessity for them to be sheered in the summer. We make sure that this is done in the kindest way possible :)


Not sure on which colour to pick? Why not order some samples. We recommend this option to make sure you're completely happy with the colour before you invest in your bundles. You can find and order your colours here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/465568782/colour-samples-chunky-merino-wool-yarn?ref=shop_home_active_1


We recommend only using a professional dry cleaners only to look after your beautiful wool. As the wool is un-spun, the natural movement of the yarn may mean measurements may change slightly.

I bought this item as a christmas gift for my sister, it arrived beautifully packaged with the really lovely note and well within the expected time frame. The colour and feel of the wool is stunning - seriously considering getting myself some! Everyone had to have a hug of the MASSIVE ball of wool that appeared as she unpacked! Definitely calculate carefully how much you need though. The instructions for this are really clear so its super easy but you don't want to guesstimate it as the wool is super chunky and it would be a shame to come up short!

Article jamais reçu, perdu par la poste, le vendeur n'a pas fait jouer son assurance pour se faire dédommager par le transporteur, j'ai payé et je n'ai jamais rien reçu malgré un litige ouvert sur etsy et une patience de plusieurs mois. Pas sérieux, pas honnête.
