100% virgin wool
Twinkle Soft Chunky is a super-soft chunky 100% virgin wool yarn with a very loose twist. This loose twist allows for the yarn to be knitted at a large gauge (1½ to 2 stitches per inch!) while keeping the finished garments from getting too heavy. At this gauge the stitches are so large that even in Stockinette Stitch, the stitches themselves become a wonderful design element in the finished knit. Worked on big needles, Wenlan’s designs in Soft Chunky are innovative and knit up super fast. For Soft Chunky’s color palette Wenlan chose a mix of 41 current fashion colors and classic vintage shades.
