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.

Love this yarn!

I have made several blankets with this yarn. It’s so soft and doesn’t split and works up so fast. I also love there is so many colors to choose from and that it holds up to washing and lots of use. I will definitely be buying more.

Soft and squishy

Very nice thick yarn. Lovely drape for a blanket I am working on. Wish I had chosen a different color/style though. The colors of the variegated I chose are very pretty but also exceptionally challenging to find a pattern that helps show off the yarn. So, I will definitely buy this yarn again just not in variegated. I also wish it came in a bigger size (perhaps it does and I haven't noticed?)

Flax sweater

I love this knit. I'm excited to be using this yarn. I made a swatch and put through washer and air dried. I'm set to make two more sweaters with this too.


Basic stitch anti-pilling has been my absolute favorite yarn to crochet with EVER. It's super soft, squishy, cozy, and glides off my crochet hook. It makes crocheting more enjoyable than it's ever been! The colors are also accurate to the photos. I got ebony and mahogany to make a striped sweater for my best friend!

Great Yarn

I use this yarn because of the orange that has an amazing color and texture. It is easy to work with and looks great. I do wish the other colors would have the same color texture as the orange as if they did I would buy more as the colors are perfect for creating animals!
