  • Favourite Type of Yarn

    I have been knitting for over 20 years, though I did have a few years break

    I got back into knitting last year and was so pleased to find more interesting yarns available now

    I have become a real lover of Acrylics

    Its very dependent on the project. Nice soft cottony stuff for babies. I like things with more wool for hats and scarves. I haven't used fancy expensive merino or alpaca yet and soft toys anything that suits for me!!

      The problem is if you knit something in a really beautiful, soft yarn it spoils you for anything else and I have ended up with a huge stash of all sorts of bits and bobs to use up.. lol.

        I end up buying acrylics because they are economical and you can justify buying them in whatever colours you want. But I much prefer natural yarns - they seem to hold their shape much better than acrylics... I don't like that "baggy" look they get after a while!
