Twinkle "Soft Chunky" was developed by designer Wenlan Chia for her Twinkle Handknits Collection. This yarn is a super-soft 100% virgin wool in the bulky/chunky category with a very loose twist — like roving. This loose twist allows for the yarn to be knitted at a large gauge (on average 1.5 to 2 stitches/inch) while keeping the finished garments from getting too heavy.
At this gauge the stitches are so large that even in Stockinette Stitch, the stitches themselves become a wonderful design element. Wenlan’s designs in Soft Chunky are innovative and knit up super fast. For the color palette Wenlan chose a mix of current fashion and classic vintage shades.
