Schachenmayr Bravo Big

One yarn I can definitely recommend is Schachenmayr Bravo Big. And here is why:


  1. It’s super bulky.  Knitting with 10mm/US15 needles can give instant gratification. A hat or a cowl can be finished in just one weekend. A nice break from knitting lace.
  2. 100% acryl. The perfect material for a big bag like mine. Easy to wash, no blocking needed. (Did not wash the yarn so can’t share my opinion on that.)
  3. Not rough like some acrylics I’ve had in the past. The yarn has a nice feel while knitting. The knitted fabric has a bit of structure.
  4. Lots of colors, today 32 different colors. Some more neutral, others very bright. So there must be a color you like.bravo-big-wolle-schachenmayr And then there are also the color options:bravo-big-color-wolle-schachenmayr
  5. Good price-quality, 200 gram, ca 120 m for about € 6,50. At this price not the cheapest yarn I’ve had. Considering the quality definitely worth the price.
  6. Available in my area. I just hop on my bike, pick up some cookies and can start knitting right away.

What’s your favorite super bulky yarn?
