I have never worked with acrylic yarn before but chose this to make a Granny Stripe Blanket as it was recommended by Attic24, a crochet aficionado on Ravelry. Attic24 uses Stylecraft for most of her projects and I sure understand why! This yarn is nothing like the slippery or shiny acrylics I have seen before. It looks more like wool than acrylic. It is incredibly economical though I still would have bought it even if it was more expensive as it is so lovely to work with. Yarncanada is the only stockist that I know of in Canada and they have a huge array of colours. I should stock up now!!
