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.

Great for afghans

I have been using many, many skeins of this yarn to create a temperature blanket. I chose it because of the price and the anti-pulling; I am anticipating that the blanket will get a lot of use and need frequent washing. Because of the project, I needed a yarn that also came in a large variety of colors and since I didn’t know exactly how much of each I would need, I wanted to buy from a company that would still have the product in stock when I needed to reorder more. Lion brand and this yarn fit the bill. It has been easy to work with and the quality and color of the yarn has been consistent even though it was from different lots. It is soft, though there are definitely softer, but for my project it was the perfect choice.
