Acrylic Yarn

The great thing about knitting is that there are so many wools and yarns to work with. Whether you are the most experienced needlesmith or an eager novice, the range of fibres on the market today makes any job exciting. There are some staples that need to be housed in any stock of course though, and acrylic yarn is certainly one of these.

What makes acrylic such a good yarn to use, and makes it particularly good for all manner of clothes, is its functionality. It is dependable too, making it great to work with. For this reason, it is an ideal starting point for many beginners.

Acrylic yarn is a man-made fibre, and is available in any number of different weights, from 40g right up to 400g. It is also available in a stunning array of fast colours and types. What is truly great though, is that is so easy to look after - it can be machine washed and tumble dried.

Acrylic yarn from major brands

All major brands in the world of knitting produce top quality acrylic fibres, with Sirdar and Patons leading the field in many respects. Another great aspect to acrylic is that it blends so well with other fibres, such as wool and cotton. This allows a little more luxury to be delivered from items, but with that all important easy-to-maintain quality.

Another huge plus point for acrylic yarn is that is perfect for people who have allergies to wool. It allows them to also enjoy that cosy feeling of wearing a knitted item. Affordable too, it is easy to understand why this type of fibre has lasting appeal.

Here at Black Sheep Wools, we ensure that all of our wools and yarns are priced sensibly, from the most luxurious blends, to the simple basics for knitters of all levels. We also strive to keep our stock levels high and our prices low. Get in touch today for more information.
