What makes Tjockt the fattest and sassiest of them all?
Tjockt is their name, and huge, fluffy yarn is their game. What makes Tjockt Fat and Sassy so special? LoveKnitting investigates.
Have you ever wanted to knit a blanket in one sitting? Now all of your dreams can come true with Tjockt Fat and Sassy yarns. After scouring the market for huge, fluffy yarn, the Finnish makers of Tjockt (pronounced “chocked”) decided to create their own, to inspire a new generation of yarn crafters. Discovering Tjockt Fat and Sassy is like rediscovering knitting – being able to create a huge blanket in no time at all can revitalize lapsed knitters and inspire non-knitters to take up the craft.
What makes Tjockt so fat and sassy?
Available in 100, 250, 500, and 1000 gram balls, these 100% merino yarns are super soft and pre-felted to guard against shrinkage and pilling. They look and feel great as blankets, cushion covers, huge chunky cowls, and other fluffy and warm winter accessories.
Tjockt Fat and Sassy yarns are spun the old fashioned way, to prevent unraveling and “splitting,” even if you have to pull some stitches out to re-knit them. No matter which size you want, they are all available in a range of shades to complement any home decor.
How much do I need?

These projects would be a super quick and fabulous house warming or wedding gift, don’t you think? It certainly avoids the awkwardness of being yet another person to bring a bottle of wine to a housewarming party!
