We love a super chunky yarn, perfect for swift sweaters and accessories in an instant – so we are beyond excited to introduce you to the latest super soft yarn from MillaMia – Naturally Soft Super Chunky!

In a delectable range of signature MillaMia shades, this hugely lofty yarn is plied to minimise pilling, and full of cloudy softness making it a perfect choice for accessories to wear next to the skin – cosy cowls and soft scarves, and beautifully warm hats. As ever, with MillaMia yarns, the merino that has been sourced for this yarn has a low micron count, making it exquisitely soft, and its plump structure is perfect for textured stitches – your cables will pop!

MillaMia’s collection of patterns to accompany this sumptuous yarn include fabulous projects for new knitters – for example below, Lia, a gorgeous garter stitch scarf which is a perfect project to practise your plain knitting stitches!

Increase your knitting skills by learning how to purl, and you can then knit moss stitch! The Margareta Moss Stitch Cowl is a gorgeously deep infinity scarf that will keep you fabulously warm – and it won’t take forever to knit!

Progress to some cabling and you’ll be able to make the Ebba Cable Cape or the Selma Cable Scarf. Ebba is a pretty ponchette with gorgeous cables working front and back and down each arm – working in this luscious super chunky yarn your cables appear so fast, it’s a great confidence booster for learning a new technique.

MillaMia’s signature colour palette is a heady blend of brights and neutrals – and if you haven’t discovered it yet, you’re in for a treat! Cloudy greys and muted pastels mingle with bursts of jewel brights – emeralds and Indian pinks next to barely-there neutral shades. There are 18 shades to choose from in the Super Chunky range:

It’s fun to play with colour – Vera Swiss Darned Hat is a great example of how these mighty strands work beautifully when swiss darned (duplicate stitched) on to a simple bobble hat, illustrated below:

It’s even fabulous worked up using the intarsia technique for colour blocks that is so typical of classic MillaMia design – in the Sigrid Boxy Jumper below, three colours are worked together in diagonals.

Whatever you decide to knit with this superstar of a super chunky yarn, the loft and twist will accentuate your stitches and work beautifully to highlight your design. Each 100g ball contains 50m (55yrds) of kitten soft wool, and it knits on 10mm knitting needles.

What will you knit in this fabulously soft squishy super chunky yarn?
