Chunky Wool Arm Knitting Workshop
This workshop is led by Elise Blaha Cripe and features a chunky wool arm knitted blanket. Our yarn was spun in collaboration with a family business that has helped us to produce a unique density of 100% Merino wool in an ideal weight and thickness for arm knitting. In this workshop, Elise shares more about how to knit with the chunky wool we’ve sourced as well as additional yarns for future making.

We have searched the world over for the right yarn for this project (extremely soft, the correct weight, a chunky size) and have sourced a beautiful yarn for this project. We also share how to arm knit with everyday yarn in our online workshop so that you can continue your new found skill in all sorts of new ways.
This workshop includes:
- An online digital workshop by knitting expert Elise Blaha Cripe
- A live & recorded Maker Chat Q&A with our artist
- Tools and materials from artisan suppliers, curated for you, by Elise
The tools & materials included in this kit:
- 2lb skein of amazingly thick, extra soft, 19 micron 100% Merino wool spun yarn (the very softest you can find)
Note that due to the natural nature of wool you may experience differences in thickness of your yarn as you work. This kit makes roughly a 40×40″ lap blanket but depending on how loosely you knit you may end up with a blanket that is slightly larger or smaller. You can buy extra skeins of wool below for a larger blanket.
