Basic Stitch Anti Pilling™ Yarn

SKU: 202-105U


Lion Brand® created Basic Stitch Anti-Pilling™ for all your favorite projects that see a lot of wear and tear. Even before it is spun into a premium 4-ply acrylic, the fiber is treated to resist pilling. And, when pills do form (due to frequent use and washing), no need to pick them off - just throw the item in the washer and the pills disappear.

Lion Brand Basic Stitch

Basic stitch is one if my favourite tarns. It feels more like a weight 3 yarn and nit a 4 but I love the texture. So soft and plush.

I bought Buffalo Hill - after a long search and and a very long wait (shipping to Canada) it is lovely to work with. Very soft but strong yarn. Colours are vibrant and clear. I do wish that the colour switch was longer, I find that it’s approx 4” to 6” before changing, shorter than I expected. Looking fwd to see how it wears!

Love it!

I love Basic Stitch so much! They are easy to crochet and very warm for winter clothes 💗💗💗

Miss the previous version

I was hoping Basic Stitch/Skein Tones would be the same as the previous Basic Stitch, but it is not. This yarn was once a matte finish, but now it has a sheen and also squeaks when worked. I am returning it all, sadly.

The picture shows the old version in Ivory on the left and the new shiny version on the right.

Hello Mere - our apologies that this yarn won't work for your project! While Basic Stitch Anti-Pilling is very similar to the now-discontinued Basic Stitch Premium, they so have a different surface texture.

C2C afghan

I have started working on a special C2C afghan, and the yellow and black will really make the main subjects stand out. This is really going to turn out fantastic! I love working with the anti pilling yarn, in previous projects, including my Warrior crowns for ill friends, it has an incredible effect!
