What kind of yarn do you use for arm knitting?

What is arm knitting? For those new to the arm knitting process, you're literally using your arms instead of needles to knit projects such as blankets, pillows, scarves and more.

Just so, what kind of yarn do you use to make a chunky blanket?

The most popular type of yarn for a chunky blanket is merino wool yarn. This natural fiber is soft, bouncy and perfectly ideal for a warm and cozy blanket. In addition, oversized acrylic yarn can sometimes be ideal for these types of projects too.

Why is chunky yarn so expensive?

One of the reasons these chunky knit blankets are so expensive is because the merino wool is very pricey. You'll find this even if you make your own chunky knit blanket. For a large blanket you need around 4kg of wool which would be £140 so I decided to give the technique a go first before spending a lot of money.
