Swish Bulky

$9.99 100g / Hank


Swish Bulky is the softest washable Merino we have ever knitted, which makes it the perfect yarn for babies or college coeds (and really, everyone else too). The bulky weight means projects will knit up super fast - great for last-minute gifts.

Note: For best machine wash results, turn the garment inside out and wash in cold water on a delicate cycle. You may want to wash projects made from darker colors by themselves for the first few washes in case the yarn bleeds a bit.

“I wanted to thank you for my last order. I phoned prior, and spoke to a nice representative for Knit Picks. I told her I wanted yarn info out of a book I was about to order. I explained I wanted to order the yarn amounts at the same time. She took the time to locate the book and give me all the info I needed. I found out I needed a needle too! I received my order in good time and began the project right away. I really enjoyed the worsted Swish. What a nice yarn! I love the Swish in Bulky too! Thanks so much.” Karen M., Knit Picks customer

I made a cowl for my daughter out of the Swish Bulky for Christmas. Needless to say, she loved her gift. She has worn it out several times and is asked where she got it. She loves to say that it was a hand made gift. I used a pattern from the Ravelry website. It came out beautifully. The yarn is so soft and squishy! I love all your yarns!

One of my favorite KnitPicks yarns! Until I discovered this yarn I almost never used bulky weight yarn. Swish is less scratchy than many wools, high quality, and machine washable. As another reviewer mentioned, it can be very difficult to find merino in bulky weight. My favorite thing about this yarn is that it comes in a range of rich jewel tones. I LOVE these colors, especially Blackberry, Potion, and Hollyberry. Heathers and pastels are nice, but not really my thing. Highly recommended.

I love this yarn for making cowls and accessories. It's so soft, springy, and holds patterns wonderfully well. I hope the color range will expand to include softer colors in line with those fond in Billow and Curio. It's hard to find merino wool in this weight, and I'm so grateful that Knitpicks stocks it!
