About TJOCKT yarns and stories in media

We manufacture 4 different fat yarns. Fat&Sassy Merino is supersoft extrafine merino wool and these yarns have dyed beautiful colours - 11 different shades . Fat Alpaca Sings yarns are natural colour alpaca wool yarns - warm, fat and luxurious. Fat Chance Finn yarns are made of natural colour superwarm and very soft finnsheep wool. Fat Russian Roulette Merino yarns have 4 absolutely beautiful natural shades and these yarns are also as warm as it gets.

Here are our yarns (Fat Chance Finn, Fat Russian Roulette Merino, Fat&Sassy Merino, Fat Alpaca Sings) described in a nutshell:

  • 100 grams of our fat yarns include about 10 meters of yarn meaning  0,22 lbs equals 38,2ft meaning roughly 10 yards 
  • 1kg of yarn equals about 100 meters meaning 2,2lbs equals about 382 ft and roughly 100 yards 
  • With one kilogram of our yarns you knit about 0,4 squaremeter meaning an area of 45cm*85cm 
  • You can wash any knit knitted with our yarn with gentle wool wash 

Please note that all skeins are unique and they might have different amount of yarnmeters. Our yarns are hanmade and the thickness of the yarn varies. So if the yarn is slightly thinner, it has more meters than the one that is slightly fatter.
