Bungalow Farm has new yarn! Chunky Bunny is a luscious, cushy two ply heavy worsted/chunky yarn blend of 50% German Angora and 50% Merino wool. The Merino is domestic, as is of course, the angora. Spun by Zeilingers. It just came in a few weeks ago, and since then I have been dyeing and knitting like crazy. And designing a few new patterns as well. The cowl, shown below is made with one skein of Chunky Bunny:
The Chenilles Laineaux (woolly caterpillars) is a fun, easy to memorize and quick knit. Roomy enough to pull up over your ears on a cold day.
Chunky Bunny is put up in 4 oz. skeins with approximately 265 yards per skein. With a gauge of 3.5 to 4.5 stitches per inch (size 7 to 9 needles), it is quite a versatile yarn.
Another new product we have here is pin roving made with the same blend as Chunky Bunny:
I haven’t had much time yet to work with this, but it will make a great addition to a felted project. Either as structure or as embellishment. The possibilities are endless!
Both new products will be available at the Lamb Festival in Dixon, October 1. Look for my booth there!
