Chunky knit blankets are a hot trend for a reason: they look as soft as a cloud, the stitches are as big as your hand and the comfort they provide is unrivaled by any other blanket in the universe. Really!
So you have probably thought of either making one or purchasing one. But as we know Merino wool does not come cheap so the cost of making a chunky knit blanket can quickly go up, especially if you want it on the larger side.
But what if you still could have the softness, the giant stitches and the comfort for less?
We present to you the three easy ways to save money on a chunky knit blanket.
1. Feel the Chenille!
What is chenille? No, it is not one of those gray-colored, furry animals of the rodent family. That's a chinchilla. But it sure feels as soft as one!
Chenille yarn may only be around 1 inch in thickness, but its durability is simply unparalleled.
Here are all the amazing benefits of Chenille yarn:
- 100% polyester, which means it can be washed on the gentle cycle
- Lightweight and breathable
- Soft and comfortable
- Kid and pet friendly, this yarn is not afraid of stains or spills
- Inexpensive comparing to Merino wool
Chenille is a perfect alternative for spring and summer. Take a chenille blanket with you to your favorite campground and get warm with it while eating smores around the fire.
Bring it to a picnic with your love and don't be afraid of grass stains - throw it in the wash afterwards and you are good to go.
The benefits are endless, but you get the idea. Chenille is amazing!! Get it here.
2. Skinny Merino
Super chunky Merino wool is about 2.5-3 inches thick while skinny Merino is only half an inch thick. You are still getting the same beautiful material and quality but it is lighter, thinner and as a result -cheaper.
The stitch is super cute as you can see above in the adorable knit hat. This skinny Merino yarn is a wonderful alternative to the super chunky kind.
We promise you will love knitting with it just as much! Check out the details here.
