Best Acrylic Yarns: Vanna's Choice

Updated on June 30, 2018

Rich Colors in a Quality Acrylic Yarn

It Feels Good to Knit

Vanna's Choice acrylic yarn has a wonderful, wool-like hand. I doesn't feel like plastic (as in some cheap craft yarns.) I would compare it in softness to Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn, though Vanna's Choice is a bit thicker. I would almost compare it to Lamb's Pride Worsted in feel and weight. This yarn is Aran-weight, a bit heavier than regular knitting worsted.

I had an opportunity to test this yarn for quite a while as I knit a Dr. Who Season 18 scarf. The original BBC pattern calls for chenille yarn, but I decided to try it in Vanna's Choice. It knits like a dream and feels soft, yet substantial. A high quality yarn is essential when you are knitting what seems like miles of garter stitch--as in any Dr. Who scarf!

I have enjoyed Vanna's Glamour yarn in a sparkly lace project. Lion Brand Vanna's Choice is thicker and softer. The durability test will come next winter, when this scarf is put into service.

What is Your Opinion?

My favorite acrylic yarn is:

      It is really nice yarn. I get mine at JoAnn and at Michaels--in my town, they each have different color selections, so between the 2 stores I can generally find what I want.
