Acrylic knitting yarns are soft, have elasticity, and shape retention. Many yarn manufacturers combine acrylic and wool fibers into a yarn blend, so the best of both fibers prevail. For example, Plymouth's Encore Worsted Yarn
is a wool/acrylic blend yarn. It provides the warmth and feel of wool while the acrylic fiber makes it durable, moth proof, and machine washable. Check out our acrylic knitting yarn and acrylic/blend yarns below.
