I have only ever knitted with acrylic and cotton, and now a wonderful cotton/acrylic blend. I want to branch out somewhat, but I don't want to waste money on yarns that aren't good. So I was wondering if y'all would post what your absolute favorite yarns are...and why...and all about them...and any drawbacks. Pretty please?
I'll start. My new favorite is TLC Cotton Plus. I'm using it for "Tempting 2". It's worsted weight, cotton/acrylic. It's wonderfully soft, and easy to work with. And the stitch definition is perfect! I haven't finished anything with it yet, so I can't judge its washability or wearability. It runs around $2-4/skein. The only drawback is that I haven't been able to find it locally; I ordered it online. I actually just bought some more off ebay.
