Yarns by Fiber Content
When it comes to knitting and crochet, yarn fibers play a vital role in the success of your projects. The fiber you choose has a direct effect on the drape, structure and shape of your finished product. If you are trying to make a delicate, openwork shawl to wear in the warm months, a bulky wool fiber definitely will not give you the results you want. Instead, you will want to select a lace-weight fiber. For your convenience, we have assorted our yarn inventory by fiber - acrylic, cotton, nylon, wool, polyester and more. Click on the fiber you need and start shopping for a range of weights and colors. Wondering what you can make with the different types of yarn fibers? Let us help you out.
Cotton is one of the most versatile and easy to care for fibers. It is most often used to make household products, such as pot holders, dish towels, placemats and tablecloths. It can also be used to make toys such as Amigurumi stuffed animals. Shop for a spectrum of colors and make great gifts for birthdays and holidays.
If you are a beginner or are looking for a fiber that is easy to care for and replicates the feel of natural fibers, acrylic is your best bet. Acrylic has come a long way in terms of quality and softness. Our assortment feels great and can withstand frequent washing, making it ideal for knitting blankets and clothing for children and adults.
Wool is a classic when it comes to knitting for warmth. Choose from 100 percent merino wool, or opt for our wool blends that have been infused with a touch of nylon or acrylic to take away the itchy feeling.
Our inventory is filled with many notable brands that have been around for many generations, including Bergere de France, Patons Yarn, Red Heart as well as newer designers such as Isaac Mizrahi and Deborah Norville.
