About This Class

have you seen the gorgeous giant blankets floating across the internet & then had your giant plush dreams ruined by finding out that the materials cost $500+, they're unwashable, and a pilling nightmare?

there's a solution: create your own yarn out of perfect-for-blankets fleece fabric!

this class will walk you through everything from where to purchase the highest quality fleece for the cheapest price, to how to create your own mega-bulky yarn, to arm-knitting the blanket from start to finish (for less than $50!)
