What is included in the knitting kit?
You can buy a select selection of varied knitting sets from us, in different levels of difficulty from knitted shawls to traditional jackets. The necessary accessories are included in the delivery.
The scope of delivery includes colour-coordinated wool, hand-wound gradient yarn and matching knitting needles. As a bonus, there are the corresponding knitting instructions absolutely free of charge!
This saves you the trouble and time of tediously looking for your utensils yourself. The sets are also ideal as a gift for your loved ones. Whether as a birthday present, under the Christmas tree, or just like that.
With our sets you can make every knitting fan happy, and those who want to become one.
How are the bobbles produced?
We produce these from at least three threads of cone yarn, which are twisted together. This creates a multi-strand yarn that is suitable for knitting and crocheting.
For the typical coloring of the yarns, the threads have to change color after a certain distance. For this, the threads are cut off after a certain running length and tied to the previous thread. The small knots are not visible in the knitting pattern.
A lot of knots are needed for the balls. Since the process is carried out by hand, the comparatively high final price differs significantly from machine-made yarns and industrial wool.
I'm still a beginner - can I do that too?
The sets are ideal for you, especially if you are a beginner in knitting. You don't run the risk of buying the wrong yarn or the wrong needle size. The free knitting instructions guide you step by step to the desired goal, down to the last stitch.
We recommend starting with simpler sets, such as the knitted scarf. More advanced works like the sweaters may overwhelm you at first. It is important that you are patient. If you knit your first stitches, you won't get the results you imagined.
Don't be discouraged by mistakes. Slowly work your way stitch by stitch. No master has fallen from the sky yet. Don't be afraid to ask questions.

On the Internet you will find plenty of opportunities to exchange ideas about knitting with experienced people.
Our Facebook group, for example, is perfect for this. You can also find quick help for your knitting project on knitting forums and sites like Pinterest and Instagram if you want it.
You too can learn to knit. Whether hats, jackets or scarves, there are almost no limits.The feeling of having your own complex end product in your hands
How are the single color balls produced?
As already mentioned, the single-colored threads are made from several threads of our Konegarn produced in Germany. They are twisted and arranged into a coherent yarn.
In this process, the threads do not need to be knotted together, unlike our gradient bobbles. While the manufacturing process is a bit simpler, that doesn't mean we craft them with less care.
How good is the wool?
We get our high-quality yarn from the company TVU in Bavaria. Half of this is made of cotton and the other half is made of polyacrylic.
This cleverly combines the positive properties of both yarns. On the one hand, cotton has an extremely absorbent surface and is very comfortable to wear. The polyacrylic ensures more stability and extremely hard-wearing material. Which is very useful, for example, for knitting socks.
This ensures that your works are preserved for a very long time without losing their wearing comfort.
Our Chiemseegarn team manufactures the threads by hand themselves. With us, nothing is ordered and temporarily stored. As a small family business, we initially produced laboriously on a small scale with a few tools in our own cellar.
Little by little we were able to establish ourselves. With increasing growth, we built a small manufactory in the former workshop of the house. There we work tirelessly seven days a week to offer you the best possible products.
We want to continue to offer you an extensive and well-assorted selection of creative ideas in the future. However, this means that we need ever larger amounts of material. Nevertheless, we attach great importance to offering you the best possible quality of the products.
In 2021 we will add merino wool to our shop. This has already been extensively checked and tested by us, which is why we are sure that it will take Chiemsee yarn to the next level in terms of quality. Mixed yarns made of silk, mohair and cashmere are also planned.
If you have any helpful ideas for yarns, please contact us at email@example.com. You can also reach us around the clock via social media such as Facebook or Instagram.
Can I get Chiemseegarn Bobbel somewhere else?
You can only get the official Chiemseegarn articles exclusively in our online shop. This does not mean that we strictly refuse to sell our yarns to shops, for example. Unfortunately, the only problem here is that, unlike other industrial manufacturers, we offer handwork to order, and therefore cannot send stock goods that could be offered on a store shelf.
Another point is the close customer contact. We attach great importance to this. In this way we get direct feedback on our goods and can accept suggestions for improvement as quickly as possible and process them quickly. We are in direct contact with several customers, also to exchange instructions and news from the knitting and crochet scene.
None of the sets speaks to me
That doesn't have to stop you from swinging the knitting needle. On the internet you will find an endless selection of instructions for the most diverse works in all colors and variations in abundance.
Of course you can get the necessary material from Chiemseegarn. Feel free to experiment. You don't get the desired results with a 3-ply yarn? Try a 5 thread.
We are also happy to accept your requests for your very own color composition. There are no limits to your creativity.
Don't I get less service in online shops?
We won't leave you alone! You can reach us at any time via a wide variety of channels. Do you have any questions about our products, instructions or accessories? Would you like competent advice on which items you need for your next project?
Just write us an email. If you want, you can also simply contact us via the social media platforms. Even if you have questions about knitting and crocheting in general, or wonder why you're not getting the results you want.
We'll try our best to help you. You are also welcome to join our Facebook group. There you have the opportunity to exchange ideas with our community and to show your finished knitted parts.
The group already consists of many enthusiastic members who are regularly in lively exchange with each other.
We look forward to your messages and suggestions. In addition, we regularly provide you with updates on Facebook and Instagram, as well as information about facts about knitting and crocheting. There you will also be informed as quickly as possible about our special offers and sales campaigns.
