Why SMOOSH yarn and not others or raw wool roving? Our SMOOSH yarn is lightly spun for several reasons. The light twist in our yarn provides strength, durability and longevity ... While all wool products will shed and pill a bit, but with the twist applied to our yarn will do so much less then others and considerably less compared to plain roving. Roving also breaks and tears easily and can be difficult to work with, especially for less experienced extreme knitters. We add just enough twist to make it easy to work with, but not so much it is twisty, loose it's loftiness, or to cause uneven thickness. Our special process in preparing and spinning our yarn also allows for it to be much lighter in weight then plain wool roving. A 30x50 inch blanket made with our yarn will weigh 4-5 pounds, compared to the same sized blanket made with roving weighing 8-9 pounds! Blankets made with our yarn will also drape and move much more freely and not be at all stiff, unlike those made with roving.

Large scale knitting is extremely moveable. All sizing is done laid flat, not stretched. Due to the nature of the fabric, the sizing is very changeable and can vary... Each item is measured before shipping and will be at least the size advertised, but can 'grow' with use.
My product is a spun yarn, not the plain wool roving you can find other places, which provides strength, durability and 95% less shedding... And is lighter. My process allows for the same giant size, but eliminates the problems with using roving ... Roving breaks and tears, sheds like crazy and creates a very heavy Item! SMOOSH yarn is giant, airy, light and easy to work with!
We recommend our giant size 120 needles for best results with our yarn. Anything smaller such US size 50's and below will create a more dense heavier fabric, and require more yarn.
SMOOSH blankets are made with our SMOOSH yarn, and not plain raw wool roving seen in other shops or websites. The process we use to create our yarn provides strength, durability, and reduces shedding and tearing by 95% ... Using this yarn to create our SMOOSH blankets means your blanket will be lighter, fluffier and softer than any other!
Our pattern booklet (in English ) is provided with all knit kits and yarn purchase. It includes 5 style blanket patterns, and 2-3 small project bonus patterns. It also has some tips and tricks for large scale knitting and sizing details with cast on information. It is not a basic knitting tutorial however, and some basic knitting knowledge, while not needed, is helpful. All patterns are beginner level and require only basic knowledge of cast on, knit and purl techniques.
