December's Yarn of the Month

Posted by Lisa Krack on

 

This month we're featuring Mauch Chunky by Kraemer. It's a bulky weight, single ply yarn that's made from 100% US wool and spun and dyed right here in Pennsylvania! 

This yarn is made from the same roving that one will find in the bins at the top of our loft stairs. Spinners and felters love this roving, the colors are great for blending or spinning on their own, and it's an affordable option. Well, a few short years ago, we started to notice a difference in how it spun up - the texture and feel of the wool had changed. 

After a little investigating, we discovered that Kraemer had switched from a blend of domestic and imported wool to 100% domestic. The new 100% domestic blend produced a nicer roving - and people took notice.

So, recently when I was trying to decide on a "new" bulky line to carry, I thought it was about time that we try the new and improved Mauch Chunky. 

It comes in more colors than we carry, so if you don't see what you're looking for, let us know, we'll gladly order it in for you. For the month of December it's 20% off too! If you're shopping on our website use promo code YOMDec20.

The hat pictured above was made using 1 ball of Mauch Chunky. We've got "Build your own hat kits" available, and this yarn "qualifies"! Purchase a bulky weight yarn and a pompom and both items are 20% off and you receive a copy of the hat pattern used to make the above hat.
