I Love Value Yarn

Last Updated on January 17, 2020 by Gwen Bautista

Not all value yarns are created the same.  We believe that everyone should have access to the tools and materials of their artistry.  With so many options to choose from we are so happy that you chose Mary Maxim yarns, and when you need to stretch the dollar that you again choose our value yarn.  We have 3 lines of value yarn:  Maximum Value, Best Value, and Baby Value, each of these yarns come with the quality you have grown to expect from Mary Maxim.


I Love Maximum Value

Maximum Value comes in 40 different colors and 10 different coordinated color families.  This is the perfect yarn for afghans and durable items like slippers.  Each ball of Maximum Value boasts 474 yds (445 m) of yarn.

I Love Best Value

Best Value is a surprisingly soft yarn.  So many times value means compromised quality but that’s not the case when it comes to Mary Maxim yarn.  Best value is an incredibly soft yarn, with a beautiful sheen that shows off your excellent stitch work.  Each skein of Best Value comes in 342 yards (312 m) of premium acrylic yarn.
