Yarn Review- Peter Pan Precious Chunky

Yarn Review- Peter Pan Precious Chunky

Posted by Fiona on 27th Aug 2018

Fur yarn, you either love it or you hate it (bit like marmite)

I have to say this is a new type of fur yarn for me.

First of all the technical stuff

First it is chunky yarn and they suggest using UK-6.5mm, USA-K crochet hook or UK-6.5mm, USA-10.5 knitting needles

It is 80% Nylon 20% Polyester and comes in 6 shades

It is 50g or 75m (82yds) per ball, skein

Tension 14 stitches, 20 rows to 10cm /4"

It feels soooo fur like, you wanna pet it!!

PRO’s

  • Gorgeous feel
  • looks like fur when knitted/ crocheted up
  • can be used for double knitting projects
  • If you want a pet, this is a cheaper alternative, yes it really does feel that nice and soft

CON’s

  • not cheap at £3.10 per 50g
  • if you drop a stitch in knitting it is neigh on impossible to pick it up
  • has to be treated as delicate, 30C wash, no ironing- not exactly ideal for parents

Until next time
