Corriedale wool has a defined, even crimp and is smooth and easy to spin or felt. You can spin a fine to medium woollen, worsted or semi-worsted yarn. Corriedale will bulk after washing and has good elasticity. Purchase this 1 kilo top (unspun) wool roving for spinning, felting or arm knitting.
If you are arm knitting a blanket, we recommend using two strands held together and lightly twisting it as you go. When joining two yarn ends, just overlap the ends and rub it between your hands (like felting or making thrums). See how to make an arm knit blanket on our YouTube Channel.
Here is a list of approximately how many bundles you'll need to make each size of arm knit blanket:
- Small - 2 bundles to make approximately 30" x 36" (76cm x 91cm)
- Medium - 3 bundles to make approximately 40" x 48" (101cm x 122cm)
- Large - 4 bundles to make approximately 50" x 60" (127cm x 152cm)
