WHAT IS IT?
Bob is a 240g skein of pure wool spun to create a sandy, slightly hairy, dense woolly yarn with darker strands of black combed through – almost like a Swaledale type wool. This yarn has been wound straight onto hanks direct from the spinning process and therefore to avoid unnecessary extra knots or joins, we are leaving them just as they have come to us. This means that there may also be the odd knot (or two) where the reeler has had to join two ends.
WHAT'S IT FOR?
Let this 240g skein inspire you to create the chunkiest of projects. Brilliant for extreme knitting and crochet, mega knotting and weaving pieces and fantastic for sculptural installations.
Designers and students needing a wow factor love this yarn as it has so many possibilities for dramatic creations.
The yarn will dye easily with acid dyes or could be painted with silk paints or other types of dyes straight onto the yarn if you don’t have a big enough dye bath! Let the dark strands add character to the base of your dyed yarns.
Think rugs, hammocks, pots and vessels, hair for dolls…or yourself!
Suitable Crafts: Extreme knitting, mega crochet, huge weaving, chunky knotting, dyeing.
