About this range

Super Chunky

50% OFF! WAS £4.50, NOW £2.25! November 2013 - We have just learned that this yarn is DISCONTINUED. We will continue to order it whilst stocks last but we advise you to BUY NOW TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT! We are disappointed as we love Astrakhan and have sold loads of it!

New for autumn/winter 2012 this super chunky Astrakhan knits on big (8mm) needles for quick, warm cosy winter projects!

Astrakhan is the same tension as Stylecraft's Life Super Chunky so the yarns are interchangeable if you change your needle size/s.
