I was at WalMart today and noticed some blankets (I think they were Home Trends brand, whatever that brand is that a lot of their super cheap house stuff is) that were knitted.
One was an acrylic and it looked like some sort of a feather and fan pattern.
The other was polyester, and it basically looked just like strips of fleece fabric used to knit what appeared to be stockinette.
The yarns were super bulky and the knit was rather loose. But, I thought it was a cute idea to make a small lap blanket with a fleece-like material... might be nicer than using an acrylic.
I was wondering if anyone had heard of a yarn like that? I mean, literally, it was just like a big strip of polyester fleece. I'm curious how much it would cost... might be worth considering making a blanket for myself!
