We offer several 100% acrylic yarns, which many crafters find to be the best option for any fiber sensitivity. Our Thick and Quick yarn, now available in Bonus Bundles, is one of these. Another all-acrylic option is our Mandala yarn, newly back in stock! Jeans is another of our acrylics, and it’s well-liked by crafters – review after review remarks about how soft it is. Also, if you’re looking for more color variety, you can check out our Landscapes yarn. It comes in solids, too, but the multi-color skeins are pretty gorgeous.
Many of our yarns are acrylic blends, and the composition varies based on color. For our Hometown USA yarn, the Solids, Multis, Neons & Twists are all 100% acrylic. But the Tweeds, are 94% acrylic, and 6% rayon. Our Heartland yarn breaks down in a similar way, with the Solids being 100% acrylic, and Tweeds composed of 94% acrylic and 6% rayon.
Baby Soft comes in Solids, Prints and Pomadours. The Solids & Prints are 60% acrylic, 40% nylon, and the Pomps are 62% acrylic, 27% nylon, and 11% rayon. Vanna’s Choice comes in many colors, including Solids, Prints, Heathers and Twists. The breakdown of fibers is very different between colors, so please take a close look if you have particular needs! Several of them are 100% acrylic – Solids, Prints, Twists, and Mist, Dark Grey Heather, and Silver Heather. The others are blends.
Our 24/7 Cotton is the obvious choice for a 100% cotton yarn. The cotton has been mercerized, a process which increases its luster. Crafters have touted it’s strength (no splitting) and the drape of finished garments. With 24 colors, there’s something perfect for every project! The Fast-Track yarn is a cotton blend, composed of 60% cotton, and 40% polyester. This unique super-bulky yarn has a wide, flat shape that’s is great for jewelry and accessories, while strong enough for bags and bowls.
If you’re a crafter with a wool sensitivity, we’d love to hear what works for you! If you’ve worked with a yarn of ours successfully, and we haven’t mentioned it here, let us know. We hope to provide all our crafters with what they need to craft happily, healthily, and focus on what’s most important: your current WIP.
