Bulky Yarn Category #5

I chose Lion Brand Jiffy Yarn Bonus Bundle Yarn in Coastal and Deep Indigo because of the pretty blues and the large skeins.

This yarn has a great fuzzy texture that makes a cozy blanket and you don’t have a lot of ends to weave in like you do with lots of bulky yarns.

This chunky yarn is fairly easily to work with, thou it isn’t great if you have to frog, pull a part your work. It gets the thread get tangled.

This soft bulky yarn comes in 12 muted colors great for lots of different decors. The large size of the skeins makes the yarn perfect for blankets.

  • 4 skeins of Lion Brand Jiffy Yarn or bulky category #5 (total of 2724 yd)
  • scissors
  • yarn needle
