As you may know Becozi offers high quality 100% Australian Merino wool. But we have so much more! 

Here are some other options you may want to consider starting with: 

  • Vegan yarn. Excellent for those with allergies to sheep or who follow a vegan lifestyle. 
  • Skinny Merino. Perfect for smaller knitting projects and a great starting yarn if the super chunky variety is a bit intimidating to you in the beginning.
  • Chenille yarn. Our newest, awesomest addition and a perfect Spring/Summer alternative to the warm Merino. Chenille is washable, easily cleaned, pet and kid friendly and will keep your body just at the right temperature during your summer outings. 

Take a look at these options and see which ones fits your lifestyle best! 

3. Consider Needles

While arm knitting is popular and according to many quite easy to learn, it is perfectly normal to want to start knitting with needles. 

If you decide to go this route make sure you have the right tool for the task - Merino yarn is much thicker than regular yarn (about 2.5 inches wide) and you will need to use needles that are thick enough to support it. 

We suggest checking out these and considering them for your next project.
