This fluffy yarn is spun from a Falklands/Angelina batt, then plied with holographic thread. This is my very first bulky yarn--I usually go for nice, skinny sock yarn. Its hard to say how many wraps per inch it has: it varies greatly, but averages about 3 wpi. and the length is approx 165 yds. My 4-year old son fell in love with it and went around wearing it around his neck. He declared he wanted to be my yarn for halloween!

Superwash wool from Virginia of Fat Cat Knits was plied with a bead mix.
    Jenny Turco/Bees Knees Knitting

Frosty – handpainted, handcarded and handspun in soft wools, mohair, angora, silk and angelina in a variety of light to dark blues. Spun in super bulky weight, then plied around a black thread that has little poofs in various blues. Scattered throughout are bouncy spirals in white mohair, pale blue silk/wool and opal sparkle angelina. (Snowmen buttons are not attached to yarn.)

This yarn is from my Madame Lumpy Gypsy series and is called Madame Lumpy's Bohemian Cousin Sophie. She is made up of a little bit of everything including wool, sari silk, silk, angelina, various locks, tencel, mohair, soysilk, sequins, and beads.

Royale was meant to be a delicate sock yarn but once I started spinning the handdyed wool/nylon blend ordered me turn it into a voluptuously extravagant slightly thick and thin bulky 2-ply.

    Penny/Penny Lane Yarn

This yarn weighed 18 ounces!! I was trying to use up a bunch of leftover bits and had more then I thought. It was pretty funny on the spindle and was falling off near the end. (quarter at right for scale)

This is a single ply super bulky yarn made from English Leicester locks straight from Australia then washed and dyed by HollyEQQ. This yarn also has a bit of suri alpaca, lots of green angelina, and green rayon. It is super soft and has lots of curls and character! This is a lotta yarn and pretty much defines the word bulky! 63 yards and 7.1 oz

I have carded some Holly EQQ's Merino and it is quicker to do this bulky 6.25m than 1.25m in kumihimo on a marudaï. (picture here) But what about this skein becoming a nice kumihimo?
