I love Paton's Shetland Chunky. I have used it to knit several blankets and they have turned out well everytime. I like it because it's not too expensive, it has some wool content, it's easy to wash, it comes in a ton of colours, it's readily available and it's very soft. I am going to attach a picture of a blanket I made for Christmas using Shetland Chunky to show how well it turned out. Once it was washed the stitch definition was wonderful.
