A few weeks ago we were all excited to show you the most exquisite merino from Woolfolk, and now they are back again! This time it’s their super bulky weight Hygge that has us dreaming of the chunkiest and softest knits we can imagine.

Make sure to read to the end of the post to find out how you can win a skein!

Much like Woolfolk‘s aran weight Far, Hygge has a chainette structure, but this time with a smudgey soft stitch definition. A blend of merino, alpaca and a touch of silk gives the ultimate softness that made us fall for Woolfolk in the first place and their modest palette means a range of sophisticated shades.

Woolfolk Hygge

Hygge is a wonderful Danish word that has no direct English equivalent, but roughly translates to the feeling of cosiness. Indeed, you may know the word from our baby jumper pattern of the same name! We think it sums up the warmth and texture of this yarn beautifully.

Woolfolk have worked with designer Olga Buraya-Kefelian (you might know her better as Olgajazzy) to create The Hygge Collection. The lightness of the fibre and Olga’s clever details means garments that are modern and uncluttered, eliminating the heavy shapes that can sometimes result from working with such thick yarn.

Of course, we all know that the thicker the yarn the speedier the knitting! Loopette Sophie cast on the Traef hat in the morning and was ready to go for a stylish Autumn walk in a new hat by lunchtime! Sophie knit the slightly bigger slouchy version and still only used one skein of Hygge.

    It would have to be “sky grey” for me. Lovely steely grey colour perfect for a cosy snood.
