A while ago I bought a huge 4kg ball of wool with the aim to arm-knit myself one of those chunky blankets I’ve seen all over the internet for a few years now, and because of exams it sat in the corner for weeks. But now that Uni is over for the semester, I finally got around to knitting it the other night!
The wool was a bit pricey at £60 for 4kg, but still one of the cheaper, good quality options I could find in the UK. Plus, it was an amount I was willing to spend to have the experience of making my own blanket. I bought mine from Woolly Mahoosive and opted for their acrylic “Mammoth” yarn in Amber, as the acrylic yarn was the cheaper option – however, it still feels lovely and soft. The company also included recommended instructions for making a blanket out of the wool, which was very helpful as I wasn’t quite sure where to start.
