Hometown USA Yarn

Although I’m an avid year-round knitter, I have to admit that winter knitting provides a satisfaction that you can rarely get in the summer. After all, there’s nothing quite like binding off a cozy scarf or hat and snuggling up in it immediately. Of course, the only problem with this is that many winter weight yarns are wool-based, and there are those of us among us who simply don’t like the feel of the fiber against our skin. Lion Brand seems to have understood this issue when they designed Hometown USA, a 94% acrylic and 6% rayon blend.
Not only does Lion Brand avoid potential wool issues with this yarn, but they’ve also created it to capitalize on the current large gauge trend. You’ll get 9 stitches per 4 inches from this super bulky fiber, and you’ll love the yarn’s lustrous sheen as you’re working it. If you’re in the mood for a quick-knitting fiber that’s as soft to work as it is to wear, you’ll definitely enjoy the Hometown USA.
