Meet Juey Purl (our Jumbolicious sheep and friends) showcasing some of the great features of Merino Wool.....

Unparalleled Softness:

Merino wool's fine fibers ensure a touch so gentle and soft, it's like knitting with clouds.

Hypoallergenic Comfort:

Ideal for sensitive skin, merino wool offers hypoallergenic properties, reducing the risk of irritation.

Thermal Regulation:

Experience the natural warmth in winter and cool comfort in summer, thanks to merino wool's superior temperature-regulating qualities.

Durability for Daily Life:

Despite its softness, merino wool is incredibly durable. It resists wear and tear, maintaining its shape and texture even after prolonged use and multiple washes.

Eco-Friendly: A renewable resource, with sheep producing new fleece each year. Its biodegradable nature makes it an environmentally responsible choice, breaking down naturally at the end of its life cycle.

Moisture-Wicking Abilities: Merino wool can absorb a significant amount of moisture without feeling wet. This feature keeps the wearer dry and comfortable, especially beneficial in active or outdoor wear.

Natural Odor Resistance: Merino wool naturally resists odors, making it ideal for garments that are not washed frequently. This property is particularly beneficial for travel clothing and active wear.

UV Protection:

Unlike many other fabrics, merino wool provides natural protection against harmful UV rays, making it a wise choice for outdoor activities.

Fire Resistance:

Merino wool is naturally flame retardant. Unlike many synthetic fibers, it does not melt or stick to the skin when exposed to fire, offering an extra layer of safety.

Luxurious Feel:

Apart from its functional benefits, merino wool has a luxurious feel, making it a preferred choice in high-fashion and premium clothing lines.

Arm Knitting - Your Simple How To

Arm knitting is a unique and fun method of knitting that uses your arms instead of needles. It's perfect for creating chunky scarves, blankets, and other cosy items with thick yarn as are presented in this booklet. The technique is straightforward, and even beginners can quickly master it.

 

Step-by-Step Guide:

  • Making a Slip Knot:

    • Create a loop with your yarn, leaving a long tail.

    • Pull another loop through this first loop.

    • Slip this new loop onto your right arm, and tighten gently. This is your first stitch.

  • Casting On:

    • Hold the yarn tail with your right hand and the working yarn (the yarn attached to the ball) with your left hand.

    • Reach through the stitch on your right arm with your left hand, grab the working yarn, and pull it through to create a loop.

    • Slip this new loop onto your right arm. Repeat until you have the desired number of stitches.

  • The Knitting Process:

    • Hold the working yarn in your right hand.

    • With your left hand, pull the first stitch over your right hand and let it drop, creating a new stitch on your right arm.

    • Continue transferring stitches from the left arm to the right, always working with the new loop that forms.

  • Creating a Fabric that Resembles Traditional Knit/Purl Rows:

    • Unlike traditional knitting where you alternate between knit and purl rows, arm knitting typically involves using one stitch type.

    • The trick to achieving a look similar to knit/purl rows lies in the size of the stitches and the chunkiness of the yarn. Larger stitches made with bulky yarn naturally create a textured appearance resembling classic knitwork.

  • Casting Off:

    • Knit two stitches onto your right arm.

    • Pull the first stitch over the second stitch and off your arm.

    • Knit another stitch and repeat until only one stitch remains.

    • Cut the yarn, leaving a tail, and pull it through the last stitch to secure your work.

 

Finishing Your Piece:
Weave in any loose ends using your fingers or a large, blunt needle. You can also add fringe or other embellishments as desired.


Arm knitting is a delightful way to create beautiful, chunky knit items with a unique texture. The simplicity of the technique, combined with the visual appeal of the large stitches, makes it a favourite for quick, impactful projects.

Meet the new kid on the block (or should we say lamb?)

Introducing the 'Jumbolicious Junior' – the charming younger sibling to our much-adored Jumbolicious yarn. Crafted from the same high-quality traditional merino wool, Jumbolicious Junior offers all the luxurious features you've come to love but in a more delicate diameter (classed as 'super chunky'). Perfect for those intricate projects, this versatile yarn can be doubled up for use with 25mm needles, or worked singularly for a more refined texture with 10-12 mm needles or hooks.

 

With each ball yielding approximately 63 meters of vibrant, colour-rich yarn (each ball is 100 grams), Jumbolicious Junior is the epitome of flexibility meets finesse. Our palette of lovely colours has been carefully selected to inspire both the traditionalist and the trendsetter, ensuring that every creation is as unique as its creator. Whether you're crafting a snug winter scarf or a lightweight springtime shawl, Jumbolicious Junior is the ideal companion for every knit and purl of your knitting journey.

 

So, why not let Jumbolicious Junior weave a touch of youthful exuberance into your next masterpiece? It's time to play with colour, texture, and pattern in ways only this enchanting merino marvel can enable.
