Acrylic Yarn OK?

Recommended Posts

Acrylic wool is available in craft shops, wool shops, walmart etc, no need to buy from fly shop.




Thanks Darrell, I need to look closer for wool I guess. There are a ton of patterns that use wool and I would like to try at least some of them. It seems like every time I find a pattern I like, I don't have the right materials and end up using something else in it's place. They seem to work o.k. but I would like to have the original material sometimes.


You can also - in a pinch look at resale shops like the salvation army thrift stores for bags of scrap wool - you will normally find 10 to 20 colors in a bag without having to put out 10 to 20 dollars.
