Interesting facts about CHUNKYWOOL: your chunky wool for arm knitting in XXL size

WOOL - in general
CHUNKYWOOL XXL wool from Merino sheep is not only thick, warm and fluffy, but it is also of absolute top quality and selected origin. Our wool has a perfect material quality, is a 100% natural product - soft, silky, doesn't scratch and fluffs as little as possible with a natural wool
. That is why it does not irritate even sensitive skin and, due to its natural material properties, is hypoallergenic, antibacterial and self-cleaning.
CHUNKYWOOL Premium is made of 100% extremely high quality, fine merino wool from South America, Oceania or Europe.
Merino is the highest quality of virgin sheep's wool, is characterized by long fibers and can therefore be processed excellently by hand.‚Äč


CHUNKYWOOL quality - you should always pay attention to this when buying XXL Chunky wool
Synthetic wool blends often get fuzzy and scratchy. Not with CHUNKYWOOL! Our 100% Merino wools offer a consistently fine quality in Soft, Extrasoft and Supersoft. This makes our chunky wool cozy and supple. Our XXL-wool has different so-called micron numbers, which is a value for coarseness, but with XXL-merino wool it has only a very limited effect: due to the length of the fibers, the higher coarseness simply leads to a higher robustness. A lower micron count, on the other hand, feels finer and more flowing. Thus, with CHUNKYWOOL Premium, Premium+ and Premium Natures Softest, you get three different wools for different applications - from pet baskets and family blankets to elegant garments that delicately and luxuriously caress the skin.

Pollutant-free and ecologically reasonable processing? Of course! CHUNKYWOOL XXL wool is dyed exclusively with high-quality dyes - all tested for harmful substances according to Oekotex 100 standard. Dyeing/processing in the EU avoids wasting resources and secures jobs in Europe.

Animal friendly? Most definitely! Respect for animals is very important to CHUNKYWOOL, which is why the wool we use is mulesing-free. In Argentina and Europe the mulesing of sheep has been forbidden by law for several years! After many wool-producing farms in New Zealand had already voluntarily abandoned mulesing for years, PETA, together with other animal welfare organizations, lobbied for a binding change in the law in New Zealand. Then, on October 1, 2018, the ban went into effect in the Oceanic nation!
Important: in Australia, mulesing is still allowed. Therefore, Australian merino wool, which is often processed - along with synthetic fibers - in cheap XXL wool from Eastern Europe/China, is not mulesing-free.

CHUNKYWOOL is a small company based in Ratingen in the county of Mettmann - between Düsseldorf and Essen. Our team consists of Daniel, Robert and Doreen
We carefully pack your ordered wool in individual processing, which we receive from our manufactories beforehand. CHUNKYWOOL is not a mass product - with us, everything gets a personal touch and our pure merino wool, when properly cared for, impresses with its quality and processing properties.
Due to our transparent processing, our high quality and our uncomplicated, friendly service, our previous customers are 100% satisfied with our CHUNKYWOOL merino wool - our return rate is currently close to 0%.

Our high-quality CHUNKYWOOL XXL merino wool is suitable for hand and arm knitting and comes exclusively from South America, Oceania and Europe
. The merino sheep live in perfect climatic conditions to grow a soft, long wool coat. 
This results in the special surface texture:
Our wool consists of long fibres and therefore does not tear easily. 
It is not curly, but its structure is such that it is soft but also robust. 
And most importantly, we have long searched for our products and finally found wool qualities that fluff as little as possible in a natural wool - unlike synthetic fiber-wool mixes from cheap suppliers

Due to current reason: Beware of Fake-Shop Frauds!

Some of our customers had to go through painful experiences, before they became satisfied CHUNKYWOOL customers.
Wool - supposedly cheaper - does not correspond to CHUNKYWOOL XXL Merino wool, neither in the above-mentioned surface quality nor in its processing properties. 
When it comes to merino wool, quality has its price, as the price of raw materials is permanently at a high level and has increased drastically during the COVID-19 pandemic, due to more intensive hygiene requirements and transport costs.
Cheap giant XXL-wool in most cases to a large extent consists of synthetic fibers, non-mulesing Australian merino wool and/or tends to fluff and pill.

CHUNKYWOOL is available in a variety of colours. If your preferred colour is missing, please let us know, either by eMail or by using the contact form. We strive to satisfy our customers and are constantly expanding our portfolio.
