Recommended Yarn: Malabrigo Chunky by Malabrigo Yarns

Gray Malabrigo Chunky skein square crop

My favorite chunky yarn for felting (and for creating knitting videos). You’ve seen Malabrigo Chunky yarn in almost every KnitFreedom video for a good reason: it’s soft, has beautiful colors, and is reasonably priced. Perfect for the Fair-Isle Felted Bag.
