Cascade Yarns Cherub Chunky - Cactus 36

Cherub Chunky is a bulky weight yarn.  A perfect blend of acrylic and nylon fibers, softer than any acrylic blend you've used! This yarn is a very soft bulky, works up quickly, and is scrumptilicous.   The ball are 100 gram balls.  Garments hand knit or crocheted out of Cherub Chunky move from your wash machine to your dryer.  The resulting fabric is soft and delightful.  Allergic to wool?  Knit or crochet a sweatshirt style pullover or hoodie.  So soft, and will not irritate the skin.

Cascade offers a whole line of Cherub Yarns.   Cherub Baby is a fingering weight.  Cherub DK is slightly heavier at a DK weight of 5.5 to 6 sts per inch.  Cherub Aran is a light worsted that gets 5 sts per inch. And last, but not least Cherub Chunky is a Bulky weight that works up to 3 to 3.5 sts per inch.

IDEAL for the bulky gauge knitting machine. Creates a very delicate crochet too!

    The yarn is extremely soft but it lack the bulk some of the other color have. Eitherway, I used in combination with other colors for a couple afghans and the color is very versatile. I used a 6.5 crocheting needle, but you could easily go down a couple sizes as it lacks bulk.

    This yarn is perfect for a baby blanket, or lap blanket. I so enjoy working with it. The color cactus is almost a kelly green and is so vibrant and pretty.
