This wonderful Big Bang yarn is a fun yarn to use, and came in great packaging! I see this yarn as a fluffy blue sky. This yarn is made to be fun with it’s chunky and fine sections, along with their great color selections. Big Bang is made of 100% Merino Wool, made in Italy. This Merino wool yarn glides off the hook without any trouble.
I had a friend of mine check out this yarn in the middle of crocheting her own project, and she loves the pop of color that’s reminiscent of the sea, and soft cloudy feel of it. She also thinks it’s really cool that it goes to different weights all in one hank of yarn, because it looks awesome.
Mango Moon may be a small business, but they do have their act together! I’ve got to give them props for that. They made sure to give excellent information about how to use and care for the yarn! I can easily see myself getting even more of their yarn in the future.
Big Bang yarn comes in a beautiful hank. Right before making my pattern, I put the yarn on a yarn swift which was really easy with the Big Bang yarn.
As I made the pattern, it just unwrapped without any trouble, and has this soft fluffy feel in your hands.
I look forward to checking out their new shop in Owosso, Michigan! I had a lovely trip out to their new shop in Owosso, Michigan. I hope y’all enjoy the pattern below!
This Fluffy Blue Sky Slouchy pattern was calling to show off the texture of this yarn, so of course I had to show it off with the shallow post stitch! And if you have been following for a while, you know that I’m obsessed with slouchy hats and ribbing.
