Hi all! Today I wanted to share a “Big Beanie Bag by Jimmy Beans Wool Unbagging”
I recently purchased the Big Beanie Bag by Jimmy Beans Wool, and just wanted to share it’s content, a short review and the final item I created with the pattern and yarn that came inside with anyone that might be interested in knowing a little more about these little bags (or big bags they call it?)
I share the unbagging with a video, because I think it feels just a little more personal and real to see a video of the yarn, and also because the Jimmy Beans Wool web page already has some pictures here and there, so video seems more interesting and a tad different.

The whole set comes with:
- A project bag

They also have subscription bags that bring similar items, each month is something different, with different brands of yarn and different patterns.

By the way, I purchased this bag myself, just if you were wondering. And loved their yarn and pattern. But if in the future they decide to send a bag or two for more unboxing and reviews, I will more than welcome them, haha 😀
I loved the pattern, and is the very first shawl I made, but I changed the pattern a bit and skipped the lace ending and made it completely solid instead.
You can also see the shawl stick in the photo.
I was very impressed with the quality of the yarn, and being my first time working with real merino wool, some of you that are yarn experts can understand why. It’s just NOT the same as working with acrylic!
The price is affordable considering is real wool, but of course is more expensive than acrylic yarn. Still, because it comes with much more than only yarn, the total value of what you receive is more than what you pay for. And because it comes with a pattern that uses the yarn that comes with the bag, you won’t be leaving it in your stash until you find the perfect pattern. It already comes with one!
