What is a Category 5 yarn?
Also known as chunky weight, bulky weight yarns are ideal for stitching up scarves, shawls, accessories, garments, and blankets in knitting, crocheting, and weaving. These CYC #5 yarns work up to a recommended gauge of 12-15 stitches over 4 inches in knitting and 8-11 stitches over 4 inches in single crochet.
What type of yarn is the softest?
Cashmere: The softest and fluffiest yarn of them all, but is also rather expensive and not that strong.
What kind of yarn is not itchy?
Acrylic and microfiber yarns are synthetic, so they won’t irritate someone who has an allergy to animal-based products. You can put items knit from this type of yarn into the washer and dryer. Even better, acrylic and microfiber yarns hold up well when it comes to their shape and color.
