I LOVE Anthem! This is my new favorite acrylic. I know there are many of us yarn snobs that don't even consider acrylic yarns, but this is definitely worth a try. This is a washable, durable, and SOFT acrylic yarn. It is so versatile you can make blankets, sweaters, hats, mittens, pillows for all members of the family, even baby! It is that soft.

Right now we have what I call the basic school or sports colors. So we have the colors for the local high schools and my favorite team, the Utica Comets!

Here's some of our store samples...

So what does it mean to be Yarn of the Month?

Well the special deal is this... we have patterns for you that use the yarn so you don’t have to go hunting online. We have classes and projects just for the highlighted yarn. AND the Yarn of the Month is 20% off all month long! I think that’s pretty cool.
