First yarn I ever knitted with. Now I'm a lion loyalist.

I picked up my first skein at a local big box store because I was drawn to the blue. I literally knew nothing about yarn, and I was actually getting it to learn how to knit. I started in January, and early this May I finished my first ever project, an owl shawl for my grandmother.

The colors are beautiful. The yarn is soft. Nd its delightfully thick. I'm addicted to lion brand yarn now

Same price, varied amount

I love this yarn as it is great for making winter hats. However, I was annoyed to find out that some of the skeins are different amounts 4 vs 5 Oz for the same price. I didn't see anywhere while purchasing this difference listed or highlighted. I would recommend Lion Brand have a 4 Oz and 5 Oz option to then chose colors in. My project takes just over 4 Oz and so I had to sub in a random color to finish it out thinking I had bought all 5 Oz skeins

Hi Rebecca - apologies for any confusion on the skein sizes! Print/multicolor shades of Hometown are slightly smaller, with less yardage, due to the higher production cost of those colors. You can see the differing yardage and skein weights in the overview section on the yarn page, below the skein images. If you're even unclear whether a color is a solid shade or not, please contact us at [email protected].

I love the hometown super bulky yarn and use it exclusively for all the afghans that I crochet for others 💕

Making something for myself… for once!

So normally I make items to give or sell, but I rarely make anything for myself. However, with the last few winters having “arctic blasts” it really affects me as I get terrible migraines from the cold. So, I’m going to make this for myself! :)

Part of the reason I chose this yarn and not another bulky yarn was that I wanted one that is machine washable, I know it sounds lazy, but I have 3 dogs and a cat, all of whom like to make glitter deposits (aka hair) all over me.
