Why choose acrylic yarn?

Soft: Comfortable against your skin and very versatile, acrylic yarn is suitable for making everything from blankets to baby clothes.

Durable: This affordable yarn is strong and long lasting. It can be machine washed.

Colourful: Acrylic yarns are often available in a wide range of colours and the hue doesn’t tend to vary too much between dye lots.  Also, it is dyed in large batches so it is easier to match dye lots.

Easy knitting: Easy to work with, acrylic yarn tends to keep its shape. If you make a mistake, you can unravel your stitches and start again without ruining the yarn.

Non-allergenic: Because the fibres are synthetic, the yarn won’t aggravate allergies.
