If you already love our Colour Crafter range, then you are absolutely going to adore Chunky Monkey! An ideal yarn for those of you looking to mix things up, this yarn boasts a lovely thick texture that both compliments and contrasts perfectly with Colour Crafter. Suited for needles and hooks sized 5mm, this is an Aran weight yarn made from lightweight, hypoallergenic Premium Acrylic. And what’s more, it’s super easy to care for and is available in the same extensive colour palette as Colour Crafter! But that’s not all! A core feature of Chunky Monkey is that it is an Anti Pilling Yarn. You may already be familiar with those pesky little balls appearing on your knitwear garments or children's stuffed toys after frequent use; this is what we call Pilling. Scheepjes Chunky Monkey, on the other hand, has been specially designed to prevent this from occurring! Neat, huh?

Thanks to its thick Aran weight, this yarn is best suited to creating large items such as blankets, home décor items and children’s toys, as well as chunky jumpers, jackets, beanies and shawls.

Rachele Camona of Cypress Textiles designed the captivating Amazon Blanket, for our Scheepjes Bookazine YARN 3, and we reckon it pairs exceptionally with Scheepjes Chunky Monkey yarn! With 93 colours to choose from, you’ll be spoilt for choice in selecting a colour palette, so to help get you started, we've created a handy colouring page! Colour it in with your chosen 14 shades to keep you on track as you crochet this exciting project
