At £2.80 per 100g ball this Cygnet Seriously Chunky is a real contender for cheap yet fabulous knitting. Excellent value and a super colour range so there’s lots to go for. Some really vibrant shade combinations are ‘just right’ for childrens knits and yet some of the gorgeous lime green, violet and trendy pinks are just the thing for cold days and adult quick knitting.
We (Bev) have been experimenting with crocheting a fabulous table runner and a ‘pot’ which actually turned out to be a bag, as you can see, looks amazing. If you are creative and can crochet then you can try to make one of these too. We have no patterns for this yarn but it does knit up to other Super Chunky patterns (you will need to check your tension) Cygnet recommend needle size 10mm to 12mm so it will grow really quickly. Made from 100% Acrylic it is idea for babies and children as it will go into the washing machine, a vital requirement for youngsters.
Needles: 10 – 12mm

You just have to see this lovely yarn. It’s so new that we have only just measured the meterage and put on the wool bands but I so want to tell you all about it. This extrememly gorgeous knitting wool is now for sale in the shop at £9.95 per 100g skein. Charcoal grey is really how I would describe the shade of this pure natural colour. Come into the Perranuthnoe shop if you can, see the yarn and feel how fabulous it is, alternatively you can buy it on line or just give us a call and we can put some of this lovely Jacob yarn in the post for you.
Just get knitting!
This knitting wool will be ideal for knitting hats, gloves, scarves, jackets and sweaters and of course it would be fabulous for furnishings such as throws and cushions.

It’s so new that we haven’t got it on to the website yet but I just had to show you the latest in our range of knitting kits. The Indie Snuggly Button Scarf’ kit comes complete with 5 x 50gm balls of Indie Super Chunkie yarn in the multi green shade 155 or the multi browns shade 158 plus the pattern. It’s quick to knit on 10mm needles which are not included as we feel that most knitters will have the needles and you also will need a cable needle. This yarn is so very soft and cuddly, it makes a fabulous neck warmer for those really chilly days of winter.
This kit can be knitted up in an afternoon so if you’re looking for Christmas gift ideas or just something really warm and easy to do then this if for you. To obtain the kit just email us or contact the shop by phone on 01736 711808 and we will be really pleased and thrilled to help.

This pure Cornish chunky wool knitting yarn is the colour of Cornish Clotted Cream!!
It’s a lovely springy wool ideal for chunky waistcoats, jumpers, hats, scarves and gloves. It is produced by us from the fleece of a lovely little flock of the Welsh breed of Lleyn sheep farmed by the Garcia family on the Roseland Peninsula.
These sheep are contented and lovingly kept, each one is special and has a name. They are regularly shown at the Royal Cornwall Show and over the years have been often listed amongst the prize winners.
Weight: 100g ball x 80m – Will knit to a chunky pattern but do check your tension first.
