View Full Version : I need white yarn

Ok all you knitting fiends. I need some help finding a good quality machine washable white or bright white yarn.

My main color is a navy blue, Knit Picks Swish Superwash, which is 18-20 per 4 inch gauge. They don't have white in this and their undyed superwash looks like more of a cream color and I would really like a true white. I will use their cream if I can't find anything else, but if any of you know of something I can look at online, please let me know. Thanks bunches!

Never having had used Swish I am not sure if this yarn will work-but what about...
Red Heart Soft Yarn (http://www.coatsandclark.com/Products/Knitting/Medium+Yarns/Red+Heart+Soft+Yarn.htm)

I know its Red Heart which isn't known to be the softest... but this yarn really is a very nice acryllic and the only Red Heart I willingly use. Anyway, it does come in white. The other issue would be Swish is wool...Soft Yarn is acrylic....

Thanks, Chel, I think I might have found the right stuff. Berrocco has a new yarn called Love It and it is the same gauge range and I think would work. I am just waiting to hear from the company about color as there are two and I am not sure which one is white and which is more an off white.

I would recommend Cascade Superwash also. It's great stuff and very reasonably priced.
