Scheepjes Chunky Monkey
PLEASE NOTE: Although Scheepjes describe this yarn as Aran weight, I would class it as a Chunky (Bulky) weight yarn, and would recommend a 6-7mm hook instead of the 5mm recommended by the manufacturer.
If you already love our Colour Crafter range, then you are absolutely going to adore Chunky Monkey! An ideal yarn for those of you looking to mix things up, this yarn boasts a lovely thick texture that both compliments and contrasts perfectly with Colour Crafter. Suited for needles and hooks sized 5.0 mm, this is an Aran weight yarn made from lightweight, hypoallergenic Premium Acrylic. And what’s more, it’s super easy to care for and is available in the same extensive colour palette as Colour Crafter! But that’s not all! A core feature of Chunky Monkey is that it is an Anti Pilling Yarn. You may already be familiar with those pesky little balls appearing on your knitwear garments or children's stuffed toys after frequent use; this is what we call Pilling. Scheepjes Chunky Monkey, on the other hand, has been specially designed to prevent this from occurring! Neat, huh?
Thanks to its thick Aran weight, this yarn is best suited to creating large items such as blankets, home décor items and children’s toys, as well as chunky jumpers, jackets, beanies and shawls.
