Though some prefer the flexibility of synthetic fibers, there has been greater demand for more natural fibers in the crafting arena. It is not uncommon to see yarn derived from materials such as bamboo, silk, 100% pure cotton, wool, cashmere, and alpaca replacing synthetic materials such as nylon, rayon, and other polymers. Some crafters like synthetic fibers due their durability and ease of care. Most synthetic fibers are easily machine-washed and many can be dried in an electric dryer without causing structural damage to the fiber or changing the shape of a finished garment. There is the possibility that if synthetic fibers are exposed to high temperatures, they may lose their structure and melt. For those interested in natural fibers, however, Kollage yarns has more than enough variety to keep crafters engaged and happy. Regardless of the fiber selected, it is imperative that all crafters carefully read the manufacturer’s label and care for their yarn, garments, and finished products accordingly.
When choosing the best yarn for your project, there are several factors to take into consideration. You may be interested in learning how the yarn was made, what it is composed of, how it was color treated, how you should best care for it, and how much is in a skein or ball. Always select enough yarn to complete your project and hold on to the labels or yarn bands as these contain pertinent information regarding the yarn. Kollage yarns are an excellent addition to every crafter’s fiber collection.
