Merino wool is a very popular material for giant yarn for arm knitting. Most people find it comfortable, soft and not itchy. This is great for those with sensitive skin. Be aware the wool yarn balls aren’t as large as what you see on Pinterest.
What kind of yarn do you use for hand crochet?
FLORAVOGUE Super Chunky Merino Wool Yarn
Super soft and fluffy, this yarn is ideal for needle felting, wet felting, hand spinning, loom weaving, crocheting, knitting, and arm knitting. The extra-thick weight is easy to use for beginners and is equally as satisfying for more-experienced knitters.
How many skeins of yarn do I need for a hand knit blanket?
For a full-size blanket, you will need quite a bit of yarn, probably around 13-18 balls or skeins of yarn. Usually, afghans are very colorful, so you may have one skein of each and, if it’s it’s really colorful, that can add up. If the blanket only has one or a few colors, it may only be 10 skeins.
