|Handspun Alpaca yarn|
In three short years, I have gone from LionBrand Homespun yarns to yarns totally NOT available to me locally -- because they are much nicer yarns. It is not because the widely commercially available acrylic yarns are not appropriate for crochet. It is because I find extreme joy in creating something from yarns that are a dream to touch, and a dream to crochet with.
So, what makes a yarn "YUMMY" to me? Fiber content can be a factor, color choices can also play a role, but what is vital for me is the feel of the yarn.
So I thought I would share some of my favorite yarns. Mind you I have not yet been able to experience ALL the yarns out there and most likely will never be in that position. So this list of favorite yarns is specific to today, and is likely to change tomorrow.
|Handspun yarn from Fiber Optica|
|Knit Picks Shine Worsted|
Extremely Soft Cotton Blend
|Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable|
|Tencil/Baby Alpaca/ Merino Handspun Yarn|
The Fine Lime
|Patons Silk Bamboo|
|Valley Yarns Colrain|
This is one really awesome yarn at a VERY reasonable price. If someone were wanting to try a higher end yarn, Valley Yarns Colrain would be my suggestion.
|100% Alpaca Yarn|
I apologize that I can't remember where this skein is from!
Reynold's Rapture is another good entry into a little higher yarn value.
|Filatura Lanarota Kaleidoscope|
|Filatura Lanarota Soft Silk|
|Plymouth Yarn Co. Mulberry Merino|
So now you know some of my favorite yarns. Which one is your favorite and Why? And what would you make with the yarn?
