Extreme knitting can be done with roving. You will end up with a product that is fragile and quickly looses it’s lovely soft look.
Gigantico on the other hand is hand spun. The added twist helps the fibre to stay put.
One ball of fibre is 500grams (17.6 oz- 1.1 lb). Most yarn is sold in 50 gram hanks or balls. This is the equivalent of 10 balls of yarn by weight—at the cost of cdn$ 9.95/ball.
One ball is enough to make a wonderful cowl, a narrow scarf or the front of a pillow.
Come and get a ball or two— the cowls make gorgeous luxury Xmas gifts. And Winter is almost here!.
I would like to introduce you to Gigantico, a premium extra fine merino wool hand-spun in Italy. To be premiered on Saturday in Toronto! Unlike knitting with plain roving, this next to skin soft wool has a twist, making it superb for knitting and crocheting cowls, hats, scarves. The first ten buyers will receive a free crochet hook 2.5cm and a felting needle. (Valued at $17.80) stock is limited.
