Bright orange 100% wool yarn sounds almost like an oxymoron, but it really exists! We think Bartlettyarns may be the only domestic yarn company producing it, and lucky for us because Bartlettyarns is in Maine. Bartlettyarns has been producing yarn since 1821 when Ozias Bartlett founded it in Harmony. It sits along side Higgins Stream in a vintage mill building that holds the last remaining working spinning mule in the United States.
This single-ply super bulky knits at about 2 1/2 stitches per inch. The super bulky has 80 yards.
We also offer this yarn in a 2-ply worsted weight (knitting at 4 1/2 stitches per inch) or a 2-ply sport (knitting at 5.5 stitches perinch)
This yarn responds well to hand washing, which is the only recommended way to was this yarn. Garments and accessories made with this yarn will soften with use.
With the purchase of the bulky weight yarn, we are offering the Dexter Mitten pattern. Using #11 and #13 double point needles, you can knit a pair in an evening! Or the Falmouth Super Bulky Hat pattern, which can be knit in an evening as well. If you are interested in either of these free patterns, please request them at checkout.
This yarn is horrible to work with. It is more like roving than yarn. Very scratchy texture, difficult to crochet with as it will not slide well at all when pulling the stitches. It will be very expensive jack-o-lanturn hair come halloween. Certainly would NOT want this against my skin at all!!
Knitted fast, color perfect
I ordered this just in time to knit it up before deer hunting season. It came in just 3 days. It is lofty and fun to knit. The pattern called for super bulky and it is. I knit a hat and mittens in two days in time to walk down our driveway during deer hunting season. 100% warm felty wool. Love it!
Moose hunting hat
The weight was perfect for the hat that I made. Looks and fits perfectly. Not sure how it will wash...but I'll do it by hand initially. Now I want to make another!
Loved it! Great to work with, made a hat for son-in-law, who’s a hunter. Hat came out really well.
Super bulky blaze orange
Lovely to work with and produced a super warm and not itchy hat. It’s hard to find real wool in blaze orange. This is perfect for the hunters in the family or anyone who wants to stand out in a crowd!
