Clothing yarn

Hey guys! I want to start making tops, and found a nice pattern, but I don’t know what yarn to use. What yarn do you guys use for clothes? Washable yarn of course. But what brand? Can you guys send links :pleading_face:
Thanks!!

I usually use whatever yarn I have, currently making a top out of chunky weight fur yarn lmfao, any crocheted/knitted handmade clothing should be hand washed though!!!

I would use cotton yarn. Like 100% cotton. No wool as that would be itchy.

I use acrylic big twist yarn, it works really well and its cheap (:

I use cotton blends, usually with polyester or bamboo. I know premier yarn has bamboo fair which I’ve made plenty of tops out of before and is relatively cheap.

I use lily sugar and cream cotton and Walmarts peaches and cream. 24\7 cotton by lion brand is pretty good too

I love Lilly sugar n creams buttercream color. But sadly you can’t find it anywhere except for Amazon and Joann.

Acrylic or cotton works, even though people say not to use acrylic. I made some nice tops out of it! You should also be fine machine washing and drying cotton and acrylic on the lowest settings

I think milk cotton seems like a good idea generally. For the brands : Lion Brand, Sugar N’ Cream, Big twist and red heart are the most known yarns for clothings

Probably use cotton… some brands I know are Lilly sugar n cream, peaches and cream, coboo, and any other one that says 100% cotton on the label
Or maybe mohair or wool to make if fluffier I see some cool mohair shrugs ^.^

I like to use cotton or other natural fibres since acrylic releases microplastics when you wash it. Merino wool can also be good, but is often trickier to wash than cotton (unless it specifies on the label “machine washable”).
