Our most voluminous, soft and warm yarn. The fibers in our Chunky Wool are sourced from Merino sheep, measure 18.5 microns thick and undergo the carding process, giving the material a fuzzy, soft texture.
Our Chunky Wool undergoes the carding process, which means parallelizing, cleaning, and regularizing the wool, making it softer and warmer. Shorter fibers, called "open," are mixed with longer fibers, called "top", and this gives the yarn, and consequently the knit, more volume.
Carded wool is considered more sustainable than classic worsted wool because some of the waste generated by the machines used to comb the wool is reused in carding.
