Join the Pride: Getting to Know Lion’s Pride Woolspun Yarn

Lion Brand lovers, meet your new go-to yarn.

Lion’s Pride Woolspun Yarn is a favorite among knitters & crocheters alike, and its lovable qualities will unfurl every stitch of the way. Select your skein from a bevvy of 35 colors, ranging from hearty neutrals to Pinterest-worthy vivids, self-striping prints to mixes. The fiber make-up is special, and you’ll feel the difference while working in it & once you’re wearing it – read more below!


Feel the difference in the fiber.

Lion’s Pride Woolspun Yarn is a bulky beauty, weighing in at 3.5oz in solids, 3oz in prints (CYC #5/Bulky). It works up quickly, and you’ll feel that burst of confidence holding a strong start in your hands within the hour from first casting on! The 127yd in solids (108yd in prints) is made with 12-ply construction. The 12-ply construction is totally unique, lending itself to beautiful draping for garments and a cushion-y bounce for afghans and winter accessories.

From Susan’s five-star review:

Excellent stitch definition

I love this yarn for projects with complex stitches. The yarn doesn’t felt, there’s no ‘halo’, so your gorgeous cables and such stand out without getting fuzzy. Incredible stitch definition.

Thank you, Susan, we think so, too!

The blend is 80% Acrylic & 20% Wool, with the warmth & comfort of wool.

Jennifer says:

I love it for hats and scarfs. If you’re anything like me you probably usually find anything with wool in it makes you really itchy and you just can’t touch it but with this yarn you would never know there’s any wool in it at all. It’s so soft and beautiful, This is a must buy.
