Lion Brand 24/7 Yarn

Cotton yarn has great durability and will not wear out easily, so you’ll have more projects going on at once! Choose among 37 colors available in worsted weight with mercerization process giving it incredible colorfastness over time, as well as, a sheen which makes them last longer than regular cottons without sacrificing comfort or quality.

I decided to go with the Navy color, because it’s such a classic shade that goes with everything. I just love it! There is a wide variety of solid colors to choose from.

The yarn is made of cotton and acrylic. This cotton & acrylic yarn is easy to work with.
