Anthem Yarn and Anthem Chords
With its cottony-soft hand, you'll hardly believe this easy-care yarn is 100% acrylic. It's a perfect choice for chemo caps, children's garments, blankets, sweaters, accessories and pillows, and holds up beautifully in the washer and dryer.
This yarn is comparable to the price of yarn in big box stores, but the quality is a little better. Use the wide range of colors to show off your inner sports fan with game day scarves, hats and sweaters.
Note: The weight of this yarn is listed online as Aran, Worsted, and Heavy Worsted (from different knitters and sources); however the manufacturer lists worsted as the official yarn weight.
LYS Owner's Note: For me, this yarn works up best on size 9 or 10 needles. It was very tight and not as easy to work with on size 8 needles. It is a different texture from most acrylics; not as "slippery".
