Are there any pros or cons on using acrylic Yarn? I bought some at Big Lots and they are made in Turkey. I also would like some ideas at what could be made. I purchased 10 skeins. Thank You.
Just a heads up on the yarns bought at Big Lots. I myself have never been to one of their stores, but a friend has bought yarn there many times. When she brought me a ball of yarn she bought there it had their label on it, but I knew it was a Red Heart yarn called Heart and Sole which was a sock type yarn which had wool in it.
The label said polyester, some of they labels say acrylic.
Just be careful since when they get yarn from many major companies as closeouts, they remove the original label and put on their own generic label.
So unfortunately the fiber stated on the label is not necessarily the true fiber.
This information came from one of their district managers, since many of the yarns she bought I happen to know what they were and the fiber on the label was not the true fiber.
Just passing on this information.
