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!
