Please note that in our opinion, while considered (and labelled) as Aran or DK weight, Ella Rae 'Lace Merino' yarns have a dense, springy twist which makes them lighter than a traditional Aran/DK weight. The Aran will generally work up closer to a Worsted, while the DK will generally work up closer to a Sport or Heavy Fingering. If you have any questions/concerns please feel free to contact us. The Seasons, while labelled a Worsted, can definitely be treated as a Chunky due to its fluffy chained texture.
Cozy Alpaca Chunky is a delightfully soft, washable bulky yarn that knits up super quick on 6mm needles. This acrylic and alpaca yarn looks and feels luxurious, with fabulous drape, and would be ideal for cozy scarves, cardigans or even blankets.

Beautiful hand dyed colors in a soft, tightly twisted superwash merino wool. Great weight for sweaters or accessories, and the superwash wool makes it easy care too! Due to the nature of hand dyeing, there are no dye lots. We suggest alternating skeins when knitting a larger project.
