Bulky Yarns--How We Love Thee!

Burly Spun from Brown Sheep Company 

 Fall Yarn at its Best!

What's So Exciting about BurlySpun?

  • Burly Spun is thick, it's fast to knit or crochet!
  • Some knitters find bulkier yarn easier to work with than lighter weight yarns.
  • Projects worked with bulky yarn require less yardage than the same project worked in a lighter yarn.
  • Burly Spun yarn traps a lot of air, so it works up warm and cozy!
  • One Skein makes a gorgeous cowl...or scarf, or hat...

So, what is Bulky yarn? What is Super-Bulky yarn?

Bulky yarn is any yarn that's larger than worsted or medium weight yarn. This includes bulky and super bulky yarn.  Bulky Yarn (weight classification 5) is generally yarn that worked on US size 9 to 11 knitting needles (5.5 to 8 mm) with a gauge of 12 to 15 stitches per four inches.  Super Bulky Yarn, (weight classification 6), is worked on needles larger than US #11 (8 mm) with an average gauge of 6 to 11 stitches per 4 inches.

We are  happy to share our new Free Pattern for the Covered Bridge Cowl on Ravelry.  One skein of Burly Spun worked in the round on a US #13 circular needle--this is a fast and easy project.   Stop in to choose a color--The Covered Bridge Cowl makes a great gift!
