Chunky Multicolor Merino Wool Yarn - By The Pound

This is 100% merino wool that has several colors or color variations in each yarn. It is very soft and luxurious. Merino wool is noted for its ability to retain heat, but wick away moisture, allowing your skin to breath. Because of this, it makes blankets that are very cozy but don't make you too hot.åÊåÊ

The pictures representing the colors are as accurate as we can make them, but please know that different screen settings can impact how a color displays. These yarns have a strong natural sheen that heightens the color variation. They also tend to pick up the colors around them.

The quantity is in pounds. Below you will find some information regarding how much yarn is needed for various projects. Please bear in mind that this may vary based on your knitting method and style. For instance, if you are arm knitting, the knitting will be looser than if you use needles. This means that for the arm knitter, less yarn may be required. However, this will still vary by style.åÊ

As far as patterns and instructions, we do have instructional videos available atåÊVideos.


Estimated Yarn by Project


35x50 inch - lap throw - 4 lbs

40x60 inch - large throw - 8 lbs

25x28 inch - baby blanket - 2 lbs

45x80 inch - twin bed (or blanket for the foot of the bed!) - 12 lbs

Cat/Dog bed - 2-4 lbs, depending on the size desired


Standard Scarf - 6 feet x 3 stitches wide - 1 lb

Please Note:åÊ We do sell our yarn in 1 lb skeins (not balls), but we make every effort to keep the yarn continuous. Nobody likes to start a new skein of yarn. As far as skeins instead of balls, it dramatically lowered the shipping costs, so we thought you would approve.åÊ

Caring for your throw

Merino wool should never be washed completely. It can be spot cleaned in small areas with a soft, damp cloth and very mild soap. If you do so, the best option is to go in the direction of the wool so that it doesn’t create rough places in the wool. It can be dry cleaned safely.


We offer 3 unique knit styles in our chunky throws: Classic Knit (our most popular), Ribbed Knit, and Basket Weave.

Because of the nature of chunky knits, the exact measurements do vary based on how the item is handled. In some sizes there is a variation of up to 3 inches. However, we are very careful to measure each piece before it goes out the door to ensure that it meets the minimum size ordered. If you find your blanket is a little off, you should be able to lay it out flat and pull it gently in the direction you would like to lengthen it and it will shift accordingly.
