I love the colours in both of these types but I have no clue what people create with them.???

If you find out, post it please. I bought a whole box thinking it was the ruffle yarn. Have no idea what to do with it.

Here is a list of ladder yarns I found at ravelry. You can click on 'projects' to see what others have made with it.

Personally, I think of it mostly for fashion scarfs or maybe shawls.

Not sure what you mean by butterfly yarn. Can you find a picture of it?

This is a ravelry yarn search address for butterfly yarn. click on the projects to see what others have used the yarn for. Under the heading of yarns do a seach for ladder yarn and see what comes up.

Ravelry is the go to site for these types of questions. Great site.

Thanks, Oakwoman. I got that same list for butterfly yarn but most of it looked like cotton yarns, nothing particularly 'novelty-ish' though a few further down the list looked similar to ladder yarns and some looked like eyelash yarns. I wonder what the OP is referring to.

By butterfly yarn I mean the kind that has a thick section and then thins out. I seen it on Yarn Paradise site. Similar to ladder.

I went to the ravelry link, as suggested, thank you, and under the Ice yarn found the yarns I had been looking at. Under pattern suggestions and projects it stated that the yarns were too new and they did not have any available. Hold on to your stash, someone will have a creative flash.

I have been wondering the same thing and since I own some I need to figure out what to do with them. I have been thinking of late that perhaps they might do well as an accent yarn or border yarn in contrast to something else with a different texture. I don't know what that is but I think it could be a good idea - maybe. I wouldn't want it to be just a fringe but something that shows the ladders or butterflies well sounds good. In reality, maybe not but I've not really seen anything that I care to do yet. Still pondering. :)

I have used this type of yarn, together with a fingering weight yarn to make scarves, using both yarns at the same time.
