Basic Stitch Anti Pilling™ Yarn

SKU: 202-098

$5.99

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.

Even the best yarns wear down with frequent use and machine washing - until now. 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. But that’s not the only great thing about Basic Stitch Anti-Pilling. It is super soft, has great stitch definition, and comes in an extensive palette of 18 solids, 12 multi-colors, 6 heathers and 6 marls. This is the perfect yarn for those afghans the family loves to snuggle under on movie night, the scarf and hat you wear every day, and baby’s favorite blankie that gets dragged through the playground.

Yarn was shipped and received quickly. Love the texture and weight and can already envision making a medium weight cardigan, using one of the patterns from Lion Brand that I already have. The yarn has the 'feel' of wool, only without the pilling. It is soft, but sturdy. Because of the weight, texture, and color options, it is a very versatile yarn, with many options. I intend to order additional colors in the future. Thank you, once again, Lion Brand!

Perfect Basic Acrylic!

I love working with this yarn! It’s soft, lots of colors and anti-pilling. What more could you ask for? When I’m reaching for worsted, it’s a close tie between Basic Stitch and Heartland for me. The Basic Stitch is just a little more versatile.
