IMPORTANT:
If not familiar with roving wool please do some research (useful links at the bottom of this page), before purchasing this wool for giant knitting. Buying a 100gram sample to experiment with is also recommended. No refunds available.

It is recommended to felt the wool prior to knitting to reduce shedding & pilling (see links at the bottom of this page for felting techniques). How much wool you will need for your project depends on the size of your project, size of the needles or arms, stitch pattern, how  tightly you knit and how much you felt the wool before knitting. Most people use 4-6kgs for their blankets.

    What sets SA wool apart internationally?

    South Africa has developed an excellent reputation over many decades for top quality wool that’s well-classed, not contaminated with foreign materials and fibres, and is produced in an environmentally friendly way. Sheep welfare is a high priority on our farms and is strongly supported by a Code of Best Practice developed by the industry for the industry. For example, wool in South Africa is produced from sheep that are not mulesed – a surgical procedure that prevents flystrike. SA sheep are plain-bodied, resulting from decades of selection and breeding.
