Recommended Yarn: Hand Dyed Bulky by Blue Sky Alpacas
Now discontinued, this gorgeous super-bulky yarn was my go-to for luxurious, quick-knit projects. Perfect for the Double-Knit Heart Scarf or Bulky Cabled Legwarmers with Buttons.
Recommended Yarn: Malabrigo Chunky by Malabrigo Yarns
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 and Perfect Basic Crochet Hat.

Recommended Yarn: Malabrigo Rasta by Malabrigo Yarn
My favorite yarn for my one-skein Super-Bulky Toe-Up Socks. This yarn is very soft and warm, and comes in a beautiful range of tranquil colors.
Recommended Yarn: Malabrigo Twist by Malabrigo Yarns
My favorite yarn of all time. Aran-weight. Now discontinued, but you can still find it by Googling.
Recommended Yarn: Walkabout Yarn by Queensland Collection
Queensland Collection Walkabout is a great DK-weight yarn for using with our Felted Slippers class and pattern.
Its heathered colors complement each other, and it is a breeze to work with. Felts beautifully.
Recommended Yarn: Wool-Ease Thick n’ Quick Yarn by Lion Brand
Thick, inexpensive yarn is perfect for learning to knit your first scarf. Wool-Ease is a great brand to start out with, and you can buy it at Michael’s or Wal-Mart. Three skeins (balls) is plenty to make a long scarf including fringe.
