Knitting Yarn Selection

Which Yarn should you choose?


Choosing Yarn for your next project may seem like a daunting task, but the most challenging part is narrowing down which type of Yarn you want to use! With so many choices available, deciding may seem harder than actually doing the project. That all changes when you decide what it is you will be making, though. Knitting yarn selection can be a matter of personal preference. For me, I like to select a type of Yarn depending on what I'll be making. For example, if I am going to crochet a blanket, I may want a heavier weight of Yarn because blankets usually take a lot of time to complete, and if it's a larger size, it will also need to withstand a lot of wear and tear. 


Different kinds of Yarn


There are many different types of Yarn to choose from with many other properties. This can make it challenging to select the perfect Yarn for the ideal project. Some of the most popular types of Yarn include:


-Acrylic: This type of Yarn is great for projects that require machine washing and drying. Acrylic is also cheaper than other types of Yarn.


-Cotton: This type of Yarn is breathable, making it an excellent choice for warm weather projects. It is also a good choice for projects that require machine washing and drying.


-Wool: This type of Yarn is more expensive, but it can have many benefits. Wool is a natural material which means it is a better choice for those that have allergies or sensitive skin


The Different Kinds of Yarn


Choosing the perfect Yarn to buy can be tricky for beginners but is not an impossible task. There are many types of yarns on the market, depending on the project you are working on. The following are some of the main ones you can choose from.


Wool: Wool yarn can come in many different weights, textures and is often easy to care for. Wool is often used for patterns that are made for colder weather.


Cotton: Cotton yarn is often lightweight and is perfect for creating summer-friendly garments. Cotton yarn usually has a more natural feel to it, so it is best for those who don't want it to feel too synthetic against


Yarn Color Differences


Many people have a hard time deciding which color to use in their projects. Here are a few pointers to help you with your decision.


- Wools, cotton, and plant-based fibers tend to have a broader range of color choices.


- Acrylics have a smaller color pool but have color names that are easier to understand


- Felted items, such as hats and scarves, take on the color of the Yarn used for the knitting.


- Different brands of Yarn will give you a broader or more limited range of colors.


- Dyed colors tend to show up better in darker colors.
