How to choose your yarn
Nothing beats starting a new knitting or crochet project ... except for choosing the yarn! Thinking about the material, choosing a yarn weight, and creating the perfect palette: it's almost as satisfying as binding off a beautiful new creation. Choosing your yarn is a lot of fun, but it's also a challenge. Not sure which yarn is right for your next project? Here's a handy guide to help you choose!
Thinking of making a rug? Then you have even more good yarn options. In addition to T-shirt yarn and ribbon yarn, you could also consider using jute! This will give your creations a more rustic look, and make them even more durable. Jute is also a great choice for macramé plant hangers and wall art! Want something a little softer for these projects? Then try a nice thick cotton yarn, like our Spesso Chunky Cotton.
Amigurumi and Toys
Want to make some adorable amigurumi, or other knitted or crocheted toys? Acrylic yarn is a solid choice: it's durable, soft, easy to wash, and comes in plenty of bright colors.
