Which material do I choose?
When deciding on a material for your project, there are several factors to consider, such as the pattern you're using, any allergies you may have, the season the item will be used in, and your budget. There are many other reasons that may influence your decision as well.
Below, you'll find information on the properties of different materials. While some yarns are made of a single material, many are composed of multiple materials.
If you're having trouble deciding or are searching for something specific, please don't hesitate to contact me for assistance.
