Homespun by name, but not by nature! This fabulous yarn from Lion Brand has a unique texture that knits up as a bulky weight yarn. In three different color types - solids, heathered and painterly (variegated) colors, Homespun is a dream to knit or crochet into all kinds of projects, from blankets (afghans) to shawls, scarves and garments. Try mixing and matching the colors for a stunning effect! You can wash Homespun in the machine and dry it in your tumbler. Knits up on US 10.5 (6.5mm) needles (J (6.00mm) hook for crochet), this yarn is made and spun in America!
