WHAT IS CHUNKY YARN?

Officially, chunky yarn is another name for bulky yarn under US yarn standards, heavier than a worsted and lighter than a super-bulky. Great for heavy sweaters and scarves, but also for afghans, rugs and art pieces. Actual weights can vary depending on the maker and style of yarn. Figure 12-15 stitches per inch and use needle size 9-11 (5.5-8mm). Compare with our worsted weight yarns and our super-bulky yarns. Need help deciding? Just ask!
