What Is Chunky Yarn?

Everyone loves a nice fluffy yarn, the Gabriel Iglesias of yarn if you will. Chunky yarns are any yarns that are thicker than worsted weight and above. Chunky yarns can include worsted yarn, bulky yarn, super bulky yarn, and jumbo yarn. With this wonderful medley of yarn, fiber artists have had bundles of fun making cool patterns and projects with their chunky yarn.

Loved by new and OG fiber artists, jumbo chunky yarn has popped off in popularity in the last few years. Chunky yarn can be made of any fiber - acrylic, silk, wool, and cashmere to name a few! Perfect for arm knitting and crocheting, chunky yarn has been in high demand for artists working to hone their skills. People have made chunky blankets, scarves, shawls and warm winter clothes in no time at all.
