They’re big, they’re beautiful, they’re bulky! This base is tailor-made for those ultra-cozy projects, ranging from hats and ear-warmers to sweaters and blankets. Bulky is all about speed and satisfaction; whether it's a last-minute gift or a quick hat for tomorrow's snowfall, Bulky is the base for you!


Our 100% Superwash Merino Bulky boasts a gorgeous ply structure that will give you wonderfully exaggerated stitches making stockinette the main event and giving ribbing a dramatic edge. In addition to its texture, our Bulky has a bouncy quality that gives items created with it a satisfying weighty drape and movement.
