Fatty Bom Baa Apricot
100% Australian Merino Giant Wool Roving
Arm knitting, extreme knitting
23 micron

Super soft giant merino wool
1kg skein

Merino wool doesn’t like being squished so it will take a little while to fluff back into shape. Also airing is important to remove any odour from being packaged for shipping.

So, please carefully unwind all the wool and leave in soft pile to air. I usually leave it overnight. Then carefully run your hand along the yarn to very delicately felt the yarn. Do this at least 6 times. This step is important before using as a yarn for knitting or crocheting. It is advisable to also lightly spray the wool with mist of water and pull through hands again before knitting. I have found this process will further gently felt the wool and make it more resilient. Water felting does change the characteristics of the wool slightly but does ensure a light lofty material to work with and also minimises shedding of fibres.
The degree of felting is up to you. The more felted the wool, the less shedding of fibres but less felting will produce a softer end product. This product is pure wool so there will be some shedding of the fibres. This is a natural process of merino wool and should not be deemed a fault. Shedding will lessen over time as newly dyed Merino wool sheds the most. To further help minimise shedding or piling just run your hand over the blanket or whatever you make (like patting a cat). This will strengthen the wool. You can also carefully snip loose fibres away with a sharp pair of scissors. I suggest you do not pull on the loose fibres as this will damage the wool.

Also please dry clean any item you make as it is too heavy to be hand washed and will pull out of shape. Machine washing will damage the delicate Merino fibres. Dry cleaning also reduces piling or shedding so its a good idea to dry-clean as soon as you can.

Fatty Bom Baa is 100% Australian Merino sheep wool (23microns), which is one of the finest and softest in the world. It doesn’t itch or irritate your skin; on the contrary it feels incredibly soft and gentle to the touch. The wool yarn is hypoallergenic, antibacterial and wicks moisture away from your skin. It regulates your body temperature, keeping you warm and comfortable.

Perfect for arm knit/ crochet projects.

To work out how much wool you will need, just multiple the length by the width in cms of the item you are making and divide by 4000. This will give approx number of 1 kg balls/skeins required. Individual knitting style and tension will impact.

However, I usually get these sizes
Small baby throw: 60cms x 65 cms - 1 ball
Lap throw 80cms x 100 cms-2 balls
Throw 100 cms x 120 cms- 3 balls
Bed throw 120 cms x 150 cms - 4 balls
Blanket/ throw 150cms x 150cms- 6 balls
