Woolstok Jumbo

Woolstok Jumbo is here, and it's huge!!! Look at these huge yarn eggs! This cool stuff knits up at 0.25 to 1 stitch per inch on US35 to 100 needles. Each of these mega jumbo skeins contains 45 yards of fine highland wool with a cool braided/i-cord kind of construction.

The Blue Sky Fibers site has several free patterns for this yarn, including this super cool Big Lake Rug and a fun Arm Knit Wrap, which can easily be sized up to a throw or blanket.

Can we start thinking about knitting for fall and winter yet? I'm ready for jumbo wool!
