A note for machine knitters from Sally Butcher:
Aran weight yarns can be knitted on mid-gauge machines at a high stitch size setting (something like the Silver Reed LK150), or on chunky machines at a medium stitch size setting (such as Silver Reed SK155 or Brother KH260).
WHAT CAN I MAKE WITH IT?
Aran weight wool is an amazing place to start if you’re new to knitting and is well-loved by experienced knitters too. Aran is a fantastic weight to work with if you’re wanting a slightly chunkier knit in your jumpers and hats to add a bit of extra warmth. Stay tuned for some new and exciting patterns to use with our aran British wool range! In the meantime, you can find our existing aran weight patterns here.
