This soft and squishy yarn feels so lovely, and it is quick to knit and crochet with.
Homelea Bliss achieves the perfect yarn combo of soft and durable. The Australian merino wool is plied many times to create a yarn that’s durable enough for everyday use and still feels lovely and soft.
These mini skeins are perfect for little projects (like my chunky hearts) or for adding colour to your bigger projects.
What size hook or needles should I use?
Homelea Bliss is ideally suited for using crochet hooks and knitting needles that are larger than the standard size. 15mm needles and hooks creates a close fabric (like the Bliss Blanket) whereas 25mm needles and hooks create a looser, more fluid fabric (like the Macarla Blanket).
How do I join such a chunky yarn?
One of the reasons I love creating with Homelea Bliss is because it’s possible to felt the ends of it together – this means less wastage and no sewing in ends. Find out how to do this here.
Where is it grown and processed?
Homelea Bliss is made from soft Australian merino wool which is grown in South Eastern Australia. The raw wool fibre is scoured in Victoria before being spun and dyed in New South Wales. I love that the fibre in Homelea Bliss is fully grown and processed in Australia. I think this adds to the “soulfulness” and amazing feel of it. It has an energy of love that comes from being made locally.
How is it made?
This yarn is made by plying (twisting) 27 pieces of yarn together in multiples of 3. This construction method adds durability to the soft wool and gives it amazing stitch definition.
What colours does it come in?
Homelea Bliss comes in 12 colours – grey, dusky rose (pink), mushroom (purple), donkey (soft brown), celery (light green), olive (dark green), mustard yellow, steele blue, navy blue, natural (undyed), oatmeal and black.
The technical stuff
Homelea Bliss is a super bulky yarn that comes in 100g (3.5oz) mini skeins (it also comes in 300g (10.5oz) skeins here). There’s 20m (22yds) of yarn in each skein and it’s best to give it the wool-washing-combo of cold, gentle hand wash and lie flat to dry.
What else do I need to know?
You may find some vegetable matter in Homelea Bliss. I love how this links the maker back to the growth of the fibre.
I hope you enjoy creating with Homelea Bliss as much as I do.
With love, Lynda.
