Meet Feels Like Butta! We’re thrilled to add this new yarn to our stash! Cast on the velvety feel of chenille, without the challenges. Colors range from perfect pastels for babies to high-fashion tones for adults. With 18 options, there’s a hue for every project! 100% Polyester, you can machine-wash & -dry for easy care. Each skein is 3.5oz (100g), and measures 218yd (199m). It’s a 4 Medium weight yarn, so while we’re offering a needle-full of patterns below, you can easily substitute to work up your favorites. Cast on this super-smooth yarn today!
If you’re a crafter who need to see color in person, you’re not alone! We’ve created our color cards just for you. Get your hands on a Feels Like Butta: Color Card, and see all these hues in person before you pick your favorite to craft with (this time around!).
Mama in a Stitch says: “It is quite possibly the softest yarn I’ve ever felt!” She goes on, “Working with it was an absolute dream. I was worried that a chenille yarn might become fuzzy or fray, however it didn’t have either of these qualities. It was indeed a high quality, super soft yarn that was a pleasure to work with. It has an amazing drape and is more versatile than many yarns as it’s perfect for babies and adults. I can’t wait to make a blanket with it.”
From blogger Sewrella: “The first thing I thought is… holy cow this is SOFT! And finally, a yarn that’s fuzzy like chenille but doesn’t shed! The way Butta is spun is probably my favorite thing about it – there’s such wonderful stitch definition, which isn’t usually the case with super soft fuzzy yarns. Basically, I want to live in a house made of Butta.”
These three lovely garments are featured in some of the Lion Brand Colors of the Year! We’ll keep you casting on in style, the whole calendar year. The Everyday Tunic (Knit) is a sleek vest, and could be worn alone, under a blazer or jacket, or over a long-sleeved tee. We love a piece that can work with many looks! And this one could become your new capsule-wardrobe favorite. The Pink Happens Cardigan (Knit) is worked in Feels Like Butta + Baby Soft Bouclé, for a blend of 4 Medium & 5 Bulky weight fibers. We love the Amarillo Pullover (Crochet) with its open weave. Since it’s a Level 2 – Easy (Beginner+) pattern, it’s accessible to even more beginner crocheters!
Well, if the Gowanus Baby Wrap Cardi (Knit) isn’t cuter than a bug’s ear, then we don’t know what’s what! You can worry a bit less about fit through the body, and any mom will be happy with a wrap – no uncomfortable pull over baby’s head. Plus, it’d be adorable in any of the Feels Like Butta colors. Our Calle Baby Afghan (Crochet) uses a bright & trendy palette of Feels Like Butta, which will stimulate baby’s senses when they’re swaddled in it.
Chances are, you’ve read about Little Hats Big Hearts, the charity crafting project associated with the American Heart Association. They ask crafters to make & donate red caps to February-born babies in need, to raise awareness for congenital heart defects. This year, crafters responded in record numbers – making over 200,000 caps, which is double the number donated last year! While they’re no longer accepting donations this year, you can always reach out to your local NICU and ask what their needs might be. If you’re crafting for the baby in your life, these little caps would be sweet in any color, and the 100% Polyester yarn makes for easy care & no possibility of sensitivity to the fiber.
This is our new favorite feel of fiber, and we hope you’ll fall in love, too. With 18 crave-able colors, we can’t wait to cast on a little Feels Like Butta in all our best 4 Medium weight patterns. We’ll continue to develop more patterns for this fun new yarn, and we’ll keep you posted. If you’ve tried it already, let us know what you think in the comments below!
