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.

My go-to for C2C afghans

I like using Basic Stitch for C2C afghans. The yarn is easy to use and is widely available if I underestimate how much I'll need. I'm often creating as I go, using filet crochet images in place of true C2C patterns. (I tend to use solid neutral colors where the dye lot isn't as crucial.) The finished blankets have really nice weight to them.

Better packing

I’m 77 yrs. old and can’t open plastic by hand and when I used my scissors the yarn was packed in too small a package and I inadvertently cut my yarn. Please be more careful. Beautiful yarn!!!!!!

First time using this anti-pill yarn and it’s awesome. Looking forward to making more items with it. It’s soft, easy to work with and the colors are beautiful! Making a mermaid tail for a 3 yr old and have confidence it’s going to hold up well with this yarn!
