Crafting with Yarn and Lion Brand

One of my favorite crafting materials is yarn!! It is so versatile - you can knit, crochet, or craft with it!
Plus there are so many yummy colors, styles and textures.

We are so thrilled to be sponsored again this year by Lion Brand Yarn!

Here's a little bit about Lion Brand from the company!

Lion Brand is a family owned and operated business that has been providing quality yarns for crafters since 1878. This year marks Lion Brand’s 135th anniversary, and they’re celebrating a long history of inspiration, education, and innovation.  Lion Brand is devoted to supporting and encouraging you with yarns, patterns, how-tos and ideas, and looks forward to supporting the future generations of knitters and crocheters over years to come.

Lion Brand prides itself on the great quality of yarns that are available, and has just released a few new yarns to get you ready for Fall crafting.  One of the newest releases is Heartland, a sensationally soft, premium acrylic, available in 16 heathered shades inspired by the natural beauty of the American landscape.  The subtle shades of this made in America yarn suggest landmarks like the Redwood Forest, the Everglades, and Yosemite National Park. 

Another new release from Lion Brand is the yarn, Unique.  Each ply of Unique yarn is printed in a multicolor pattern, which creates a stunning and bold tweed effect as it is knitted or crocheted. In addition to working up beautifully, Unique is also easy-care and lofty, making it a perfect choice for sweaters, accessories, and home d├ęcor.

Lion Brand is a great resource for buying yarn as well! They have a huge clearance section right now. It would be perfect for stocking up on products for Christmas crafting!


You can find projects, yarn types, tips and more on the Lion Brand website! You can also follow along with them on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Pinterest.
