2kg Blanket Edge Yarn Pack
The photograph illustrates what will be found in your purchase.
The materials are of the finest quality wool's - include one or more of the following: Cashmere, Lambswool, Merino and Cumbrian wool's. These 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 use around the home and yourself. When knitted or crocheted the fabric is deeply comfortable, 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?
You can make a good-sized throw or rug for the floor. The cloth is a thick 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 for example - in the living room, bedroom, bathroom, garden, or out about....
Due to the size of the yarn and needles the finished items can be made in a matter of hours, the 2kg rug will take approximately 5 hours to make.
Our Extreme kits have been designed to start you off with a project, however each piece can be made to fit any area you want. We have a handy way of working out the number of stitches you need to make this possible. You can find this in our handy How To guide from the link below.
Using the guide can lead to many more projects such rugs, throws, cushion covers, tablecloths, place mats, on-trend chunky scarves and more. Products made by this method have the quality to become much loved family heirlooms.
Our 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.
Another great thing is that the finished items machine washable which means it can be used in high use areas without concern.
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.
