Our latest yarn is a very soft and stylish nod to the faux fur trend. If you want to achieve the luxurious look of fur fashion accessories, but prefer a cruelty-free option, then you need to check out our new Go For Faux Yarn. This thick but surprisingly lightweight yarn will work up into some glamorous accessories that will add interest & drama to any look, so check it out today.
This fiber boasts an unbeatably soft texture, which makes it perfect for fashion accessories and also trimming your home decor items. You can reach for Go For Faux when planning a new hat or cowl, or take your afghan or pillow to the next level by adding a stylish fringe with this interesting yarn. It’s 100% Polyester, and no animals were harmed in the spinning of this very realistic-looking yarn. It’s a CYC 6 Super Bulky weight yarn, but feels infinitely lighter. Plus, each skein has ample yardage: 64yds per each 100g skein. In terms of colors, there are 4 more traditionally ‘fur’ shades, plus two icy pastels for a more high-fashion look. The price point will give you that always-coveted ‘fur’ look, without hurting your crafting budget or your conscience.
This yarn is so new, we’ve only created a couple patterns so far. But don’t worry, more are on the way! In the meantime, check out these adorable patterns, one knit and one crochet, and feel free to get creative on your own! Grab your favorite pattern for a winter accessory, one that calls for a Super Bulky yarn, and substitute Go For Faux for something completely new.
The Cheltenham Hat (Knit) is a Level 2 project that will really give you a feel for Go For Faux. You’ll need a set of 5 Size 10.5 (6.5mm) DPNs to work this baby up, and once you get started, it’ll go quickly! This is such a fun alternative to your standard winter wear, you’re going to love the compliments that come rolling in the first time you wear this. For our first crochet pattern for Go For Faux, check out the Luxe and Lush (Crochet) cowl. This is another very accessible pattern, Level 1, so even beginning crafters have the chance to work with this fun fiber. Please note, it’s very important to check your gauge with this fiber, especially if you haven’t worked with a faux fur novelty yarn before.
While we always want to stay up to date on the latest trends, it’s also important to us to offer options that will satisfy all our crafters. Since many crafters would love to craft with a fur-like novelty yarn, but don’t want to incur the expense or work with animal products, Go For Faux is our solution. We hope you’ll love this fun new fiber, and look forward to releasing more patterns to inspire your creativity with this unique yarn.
