It’s I Love Yarn week and all week long we are celebrating our love for yarn. I Love Yarn day is usually celebrated on the 3rd Saturday of October but we decided to dedicate this whole week to our favorite yarns. Today we celebrate Mary Maxim Titan as well as some of our other favorite bulky yarns.
I Love Titan
Titan has been one of our signature yarn lines for over 50 years. It’s a size 5 bulky weight yarn and is available in 14 different colors. It’s a great yarn to do any kind of color gradation like an ombre with. Our Titan line of yarn became very popular with those knitting our classic graph-style sweaters and is a current favorite among crafters who sell their wares at craft shows and maker markets.
Here are some of our favorite Titan Kits
I Love Marvelous Chunky
Marvelous Chunky comes in 6 stunning colors and has the most yardage out of any of our bulky weight yarns at approximately 270 yards in each ball. Marvelous Chunky is one of our favorite yarns to design with and pairs nicely with Titan yarn. It’s easy to fall in love with this yarn line.
Here are some of our favorite Marvelous Chunky Kits
I Love Aspen
Aspen is a bulky weight self-striping roving yarn that comes in 6 gorgeous colors. Aspen yarn is a favorite yarn to use when crafting fashion accessories and garments. This yarn also pairs well with Titan yarn.
