I’m looking for a good fuzzy, chunky yarn. I really like alize softy mega, but shipping is at least $20. What are some brands you guys use that you like?
I just looked up Alize softy mega and it looks a lot like bernat blanket.
I haven’t tried a lot of brands of chenille yarn because shipping is so pricey, but the ones I use daily are: Bernat Blanket, Chenille Home Slim, Sweet Snuggles Lite, and Parfait Chunky :]
What country are you in?
I’m in the US. Hobbii peacock yarn looks pretty similar but i’ve never heard of it
I love all of those yarns!! but alize softy mega is actually much fuzzier than those. the green is parfait chunky and the pink is alize soft mega
Ah I see!! I’ll try looking for something more similar :]
Bernat pipsqueak, Hobbii peacock, and Hobbii go handmade look pretty similar!
I love Hobbi, I think it’s better than Parfait in US. But, only buy it on sale. Otherwise it’s ridiculous. So, say $4-5 each. Shipping is free if you spend $100.
The top looks more like what is called Chenille. The bottom is very similar to Bernat Pipsqueak and Premier Little Bunny.
In general, based on looking for best deals ( cuz little money but lots of time) I stay away from Etsy and E-bay as in all my searching I’ve never found a better deal than buying it directly. Such as the company website ( Premier/ Hobium) or yarn companies such as Annie’s Catalog, Herrscheners, Mary Maxim, and Joann’s ( online).
Ocassionally, Michaels and Lion Brand has a coupon on the clearance.
