Six BeCozi Yarn Types and Uses

becozi yarn types and uses

BeCozi was born on January 1, 2016 on a cold Michigan winter day, when we started selling super chunky Merino wool and hand-knit products that were made from it such as blankets, rugs, pillows, pet beds and knitwear.

As we were growing and maturing, we've added many different yarns to our store. To make choosing the best yarn for you easier we decided to compile a handy list of all the yarns we carry, along with some info and best uses for them.  


Super chunky Merino wool 

Made out of 100% Merino sheep wool from Australia, it is an incredibly soft, gentle fiber. It is hypoallergenic meaning that most people allergic to wool will not have a reaction to Merino. It is moisture wicking - even when it's damp. As a temperature regulating material it has an amazing quality of keeping you warm when you're cold and cool you down when you're warm.

It is great for making those super soft, beautiful blankets for light use or as home decor in any room in your house.

This wool will not be a good choice for those seeking to use it heavily and very frequently. As it's very delicate we recommend using other yarns for use with pets, such as chenille or tube. 

Merino wool is still on Summer sale - make sure to stock up before Fall kicks in.


 becozi felted merino wool

Super chunky felted Merino wool 

While it is the same 100% Merino sheep wool as the one listed above, felted Merino wool's biggest difference is the method of processing wool to make the fibers stronger, more durable and ready for knitting items that can handle everyday use.

It is kids and pets friendly, it can even be washed on a gentle cold cycle. Felted Merino was created using our own proven method of felting which is much more involved that doing it yourself. We save you the trouble!

We have 8 colors in stock and 4 more colors are coming soon!

Felted Merino is also on Summer sale, not for too long though!



Super chunky vegan yarn

For customers who can't or prefer not to use Merino wool for any reason, we have a beautiful alternative - a very soft and gentle 100% acrylic fiber. It looks and feels almost like Merino wool but it is much lighter in weight and a bit thinner.

The vegan yarn has a bit of shine to it which adds a wonderful touch to this yarn as a home decor staple. 

Vegan yarn is on sale for only $22/lbs for just a few more weeks. It is great for making blankets, pillows, knitwear and pet beds.



Chunky chenille yarn

We introduce this new yarn to our customers last summer and it became extremely popular! 

Chunky chenille is about half inch thick and is great for knitting absolutely anything: blankets, knitwear, pillows, hats, scarves and anything else you can imagine. This beautiful yarn is light, fluffy and soft. It is very pet and kid friendly and can handle regular to heavy use. Very portable as it's light, it's adored for a reason!

We now have over 20 colors available, the only place in US with such a huge variety of colors for chunky chenille.

And guess what? It is also on sale now, but not for much longer! 



Jumbo chenille yarn

Custom made Jumbo chenille yarn created per our personal request: nothing like this existed on the market anywhere in the world. It is much thicker than our regular chunky chenille, more than one inch thick! We created this super thick and fluffy chenille yarn for those customers who would like an alternative to the thick and fluffy Merino or acrylic yarn.

It is very popular already. We have 6 colors available now and 6 more are coming in September.

This yarn is perfect for blankets and pillows. Blankets made from this yarn will be the softest and fluffiest you have ever had in your life!

Tube yarn

Our very new addition!

Tube yarn became popular after being introduced to the knitting market by a Ukrainian knitting company Ohhio.

Our tube yarn has been made using exactly the same technology: cotton tube filled with polyester soft filling. Tube yarn is quite soft, very bulky and great for making blankets, rugs and pet beds.

We have 4 colors available and planning to add at least two more soon!

Check out our Tube yarn here.


Whether it is Merino, chenille or tube yarn that caught your eye, don't hesitate to check out the listings and learn more about each one. 

We love seeing what you make with our yarn - tag us in your social media posts for a shout out and a chance to be featured on our page. 

Enjoy your Summer and BeCozi!
