Let’s talk yarn…


In the last 2 months I have used 4 different brands of yarn that are all 100% acrylic.  The difference between them is amazing!

Not only do they each have a different price, they have a pretty different feel.

“Red Heart Super Saver” is just that –a super saver.  It’s not a bad yarn, but compared to the others it is scratchy.  It can be washed and dried several times to soften up, but who wants to take time to do several washings before donating?

“Vanna’s Choice” and “Loops & Threads Impeccable” seemed very similar.  Both have a nice feel, but a are a bit pricey compared to my favorite.  And, the Loops & Threads tended to get tangled kind of easily.

“I Love This Yarn” from Hobby Lobby has become my favorite.  It’s nice and soft to work with, comes in a variety of colors and is affordable.

Let me know if you have a favorite yarn, I’d love to compare!

  1. I better get another roll. I have a 14 hour drive in the car I could get one finished probably! Have you gotten a lot donated to you? If so, email me and let me know! I can pick some up from you or I’ll try to make it to Hobby Lobby tomorrow!

  2. I like Simply Soft and I Love This Yarn, too. Red Heart is too scratchy to put around your neck! Especially if it’s supposed to be COMFORTING!

  3. i was on their website and it looks like Hobby Lobby has upped the price of their yarn to 3.69. I first bought it for 2.99 but that was just on sale as I soon found out. The real price was 3.49.
