Item details

Giant knitting yarn roving blanket yarn perfect for knitting on giant needles or arm knitting ‘hygge’ style home furnishings or accessories. Yarn diameter approximately 1". 'Cormoran', named after the famous giant of St Michael’s Mount, prepared by hand from super soft 100% pure Merino wool combed top from non-mulesed British Falkland Island Merino sheep raised using organic farming methods. Cormoran is fully prepared and ready for you to knit.

This beautiful yarn can be used for knitting on giant needles or for arm knitting to make beautiful statement pieces for the home such as rugs, blankets, throws, pillows and cushions or knitted accessories such as scarves, cowls and wraps.

ONE STITCH: 1.7″ wide and 2″ long on 35mm needles. (US 70 )
Length: 117 Yards / 107 m per 1kg

Ample grasslands, low-stocking densities, and nearly nonexistent disease pressure has made organic methods the default approach of Falkland’s ranchers. In the Falklands, there is no need for sheep dipping, where the animals are literally bathed in potent parasiticides, nor is it necessary to carry out the controversial practice of mulesing to avoid the fly (and maggot) infestations which are a huge problem in warmer climates. Animal welfare groups are actively campaigning against mulesing and neither practice is permitted under organic standards.

Giant knitting and extreme knitting are great fun and the yarns knit up quickly into soft and cosy statement pieces. The following is a rough guide but please feel free to contact me for more precise guidance:

Cowl = 1 x 500gm
Cushion / Pillow 18″ square = 1 x 1kg balls
Cushion / Pillow 24″ square = 1 x 1.5kg balls
Throw = 3 x 360 gm balls
Throw 60″ x 36″ = 2 x 1.5kg balls
Blanket 48″ x 80″ = 4 x 1.5kg balls

Examples of blankets can be found in our Extreme Knit Blankets and Throws or our
