CATEGORY 6 SUPER BULKY: BULKY, ROVING YARN, SUPER CHUNKY:
The quickest-to-knit choice of all. This weight is great for outer-wear like coats, winter sweaters or heavy gauge accessories. As this yarn is so heavy, it is used the least for crochet projects because the fabric becomes very dense. A very heavy yarn, about twice as thick as worsted weight.
Yarn types in this category are often made from wool/synthetic blends or acrylic.
