Now that the holidays are over, many of you are probably working on or thinking of projects for yourself.  Why don’t you treat yourself to a knit/crochet project with a yarn from our exclusive LB Collection.  The LB Collection is a premium line of Lion Brand yarns featuring 100% natural fiber yarns and natural fiber blends. LB Collection can only be found on LionBrand.com, the Lion Brand Studio, Lion Brand Outlet and our catalog.

Our 100% roving Pure Wool is undyed and spun in the USA from the fibers of American raised sheep. This yarn is a great deal because for $5 you get 180 yd of pure wool which is also great for felting and hand dying.

One skein of this Baby Alpaca DK weight yarn can work into a soft luxurious set of wrist warmers.  Every stitch that you knit or crochet will feel like eating your favorite dessert; it’s that good!  Baby Alpaca is available in 6 natural colors for your warm and sophisticated projects.

Angora Merino is a soft and fluffy yarn that makes me feel like I’m holding a piece of a cloud in my hand.  Comprised of 80% extra fine merino and 20% angora, this yarn will add a touch of delicacy and warmth to any garment or accessory.

The Angora Lace scarf is another project which only requires one skein of Angora Merino that I had to share with you.  Knit in the vibrant Sangria color, this makes a great transitional scarf; the color palette will surely make you think of Spring.  You’ll love how it feels as it works up; you’ll probably knit it fast so you can wear it sooner.

If you’re into lace work, you’ll love Silk Mohair; a fingering weight yarn that practically glides through your hands as you work.  A lace project in Silk Mohair is sure to add a bit of classic sophistication to your ensemble.  I could see this scarf pairing nicely with a business casual outfit.  You could also pair Silk Mohair with a thicker yarn for extra warmth.
