Fiber Friday!

❤ Fiber Friday ❤
This week I’m going to be highlighting my favorite acrylic yarn – Vanna’s Choice BABY! Acrylic is basically a man made fiber, non natural wool. It’s the go-to yarn for little one projects and baby shower gifts. Vanna’s line can be found at nearly every craft store that carries supplies for needle art and averages about $3.29-$3.99, I’ve found Michael’s to have the best sales on this brand.

Pros: Comes in a variety of colors, soft to touch, rarely pills, doesn’t split much, can be used for many different projects, inexpensive
Cons: Can be stiff and doesn’t have much drape

New series! FIBER FRIDAYS!

I’m starting a new Friday series called – Fiber Friday! I’m going to be highlighting my favorite yarn and fibers to work with.

Let’s start with the basics – cotton! My current favorite 100% cotton is I LOVE THIS COTTON found at Hobby Lobby. It’s the in house generic brand but by far the best cotton yarn I’ve used, and the easiest to work with.

Cost: $3.29/skein
Pros: Rarely splits, soft feel, good value, lots of fun colors.
Cons: Doesn’t stretch, no skein size variations
