Question re: Cone yarn

Hook and I

Recommended Posts

This will probably sound like a really dumb question to those of you who buy cone yarn all the time but ...


Can you get regular worsted weight acrylic on a cone?


How about things like baby clouds? Or chunky and bulky acrylics?


I've browsed through ebay and saw some amazing chenille on cones - but can you get other more standard types of yarn on a cone?


If so - Where would be the best place to buy?

The Spring issue of Crochet Fantasy has an article on coned yarns, with several sources listed.


Yeoman Yarns at Aurora Yarn Supply www.yarnups.com

Bonnie Triola Yarns home.earthlink.net/~bonnietriola/

Bramwell and Tamm Yarns at The Knit Knack Shop www.knitknackshop.com

UKI Supreme (lots of cotton yarns) www.supremecorporation.com

Millor Yarn at www.Knitcraft.com

Webs (close-out mill ends) www.yarn.com


So, has anyone ever used any of these yarns/vendors? I'd like to find a good mercerized cotton I can substitute for Paton's Grace, and other than what I learned in that article, I'm clueless when it comes to coned yarns.





* Cynic's note: The author of the article basically lifted some of her comments from at least one yarn manufacturer's website, so take her praise with a grain of salt, and maybe check around before investing.
