Buy Scheepjes Roma Big at WoolWarehouse*!
I’m not kidding when I say I’ve never worked with a yarn this chunky, but when I started drafting pattern designs for my upcoming book, I got a picture in my mind that a thick yarn would be perfect for this certain project. A quick search landed me on Scheepjes Roma Big. What a beauty!!

- Yarn Weight – Super Chunky
- Ball Weight – 220 grams
- Length – 132 metres
- Needle Size – 9mm

Look at the lovely range of shades. I was so sad my planned project only had five colors!
Originally, I planned to make a couch throw, but now that I feel the weighty drape of this yarn, I think I have enough balls of it to make a winter bedspread. Hopefully 27 balls does the trick! 🙂
I love how fast the super chunky gauge works up. I’m using a combination of 11.5mm and 10mm for my project, which is larger than the 9mm called for. Typical for me! I always have to go up in hook to achieve neat, flat “fabric.”
I do love this yarn! And I can’t wait to try Roma Big Rainbow* check it out:
