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.

Remember, since our yarn is processed and spun, its loftier and takes less then plain wool roving - here's some basic usage guidelines using our 120 needles and SMOOSH™ Yarn.
We also have complete knit kits available here :
We don't send you wool that is simply repackaged from a wool mill - our original SMOOSH Pure Merino yarn is truly unique in that we take the time to process and lightly spin it into a real yarn product. This is why SMOOSH yarn can take a little extra time to receive.Smoosh Yarns and Blankets are more durable, shed less, last longer and our blankets are not made with plain wool roving. Please read the rest of our FAQ’s for more about why your SMOOSH Yarn™ Or SMOOSH Blanket™ Is truly one of a kind!

We use 100% merino wool for all our products. Dry cleaning is best. Gentle spot cleaning if necessary. Do not machine wash or dry.
All of our wool is lightly processed with an all natural, lightly scented wool wash. This scent (A natural fresh clean scent) will completely disappear within hours of receiving, and your blanket (or yarn) will quickly settle into your home!
Large quantity bulk orders are available at a reduced rate.
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, lightly felted yarn, not the plain wool roving you can find other places, which provides strength, durability and 95% less shedding... our yarn has been made this way for many years and has lasted the test of time! 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! On Etsy since early 2013 and In local markets and boutiques prior, well before the ‘chunky craze’ hit the world, my process has been developed over many years of trial and error, to find the perfect mix of spin, felting,and sizing, to make a beautiful, yet durable blanket or project!
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 Pure Merino Wool Yarn, and not plain raw wool roving seen in other shops or websites. The process of lightly spinning and felting the wool 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! We have been selling our blankets and yarn on Etsy for many years, and in local boutiques and markets well before that - our blankets have withstood the test of time!
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.

Fantastic, so soft to the touch and the wool smells lovely, too! Shop owner is very sweet and helpful! I am very happy with my purchase and plan on buying more! Here some additional information for potential buyers who, like me, have never knitted with this type of yarn: 1. Expect to need some time to figure out a comfortable place and position to knit in and how to hold the needles. 2. Expect to struggle for some time. Eventually, you will pick up speed and ease : ) 3. You need to knit very loosely, and what you think is loose might still not be loose enough.. 4. Open each skein and assure it's not entangled, this might take a while but will make knitting much faster. 5. I went on to youtube to watch some online tutorials which I found helpful. Enjoy : ))
