Blanket Edge Yarn – Single Ball
The photograph illustrates exactly what will be found in your purchase.
We’ve added single balls of this lovely material so that you can pick your own colours for a blanket, upsize an existing project or just get what you need for a smaller project.
Our blanket edge material is £20 per kg. Ball sizes are between approximately 200-800 grams weight, price varies accordingly.
The materials are of the finest quality wools – including Cashmere, Lambswool, Merino and Cumbrian wools which come from mills across the UK. These yarns are made of materials claimed from industrial discards created during the process of making blankets, shawls and scarves. This material therefore has the most excellent environmental credentials.
The purpose behind Extreme Knitting and Crochet is to make practical items for around the home and yourself. When knitted or crocheted the fabric is deeply comfortable, very thick, warm and a pleasure to use. We use our Extreme Textiles Tools to create our pieces – see our other listings for a fantastic range of handmade tools for use with this yarn pack.
What can it do?
This weight is particularly good for throws or floor rug. The cloth is a medium weight material, looser or tighter depending on the size of tools you use – we recommend 27mm or 24mm knitting needles and we prefer to use the 600mm or 700mm lengths.
The item has many uses – use in the living room, bedroom, bathroom, garden, out on picnics….
And another great thing is that it’s machine washable on a wool wash.
The rugs can be made to the size required for their purpose. The Extreme Textiles Way is a quick way of making fantastic, often luxurious and treasured home furnishings and apparel.
You can make rugs, throws, cushion covers, table cloths, place mats, on-trend chunky scarves, clothes and much much more. Products made by this method have the quality to become much loved family heirlooms.
The yarn has been picked for its ability to withstand constant use. You can also add in some of your own yarns to create a different effect or make a larger piece – a great way to clear some or all, of that yarn stash hiding in your cupboards.
The Extreme kits and tools are great as unique and original craft gifts. You might want to give the kit itself or choose to make something very special – if you can bear to part with it.
