Lion Brand Silky Twist Yarn

I have a confession to make: I can't stop touching the skeins of Lion Brand Silky Twist Yarn. It's so soft, pleasant and pretty that you can't help reaching out and feeling it yourself. If you like curling up with a soft, pretty afghan on a cold night, then you'll want to use this amazing yarn for all of your upcoming crochet projects.

Lion Brand Silky Twist Yarn is 99% acrylic and 1% polyester, which makes it perfect for many types of projects (why stop at afghans). Since it's super bulky yarn, you'll need a larger hook (a P-15 hook is recommended). The heavy weight of the yarn makes it ideal for winter afghans and warm blankets. Boucle yarn can be frustrating to work with at times, but this yarn makes crocheting fun and easy. The soft texture and construction help it stand out from the crowd.

What's great about this yarn is that it's machine washable - no need to worry about cleaning your crochet projects. You can also dry clean your pieces without any concerns.

The soft yet vibrant colors of each skein of yarn is truly beautiful. Whether you create a solid colored piece or a multi-colored afghan, you'll be more than satisfied with the look of your project.

Make an afghan that is soft, warm and pretty with Lion Brand Silky Twist Yarn.

I have tried other boucle yarns and been frustrated with them. But Julia Litz says here that this one "makes crocheting fun and easy", so maybe I'll try again - at least this project might get finished!
