Not that long ago, Lion Brand Yarn announced this new line of yarn. The Crayola Cakes immediately drew my attention with a design I had been planning for over a year. With the design in mind and an event to contribute it to, I knew I had to get my hands on some! And a link to well-known colorful company has it’s appeal, as well as such vibrant colors!.
About Lion Brand Crayola Cakes
This worsted weight colorful yarn comes in 10 vibrant ombré colors perfect for a variety of projects. Each cake comes with 177 yards/162 meters weighing at 3 oz/85 g. Crayola Cakes consist of 100% acrylic yarn that is easy to care for as it’s able to be machine washed and dried. And after all that goodness, the price is also very reasonable starting at $4.99 on the Lion Brand Yarns Site. This yarn is versatile on paper but how does it hold up to a hook?
Would I buy Crayola Cakes Again?
Absolutely! The color caught my eye, and the Crayola name, but the softness make it worth of a must have! For an acrylic yarn, this fiber seemed to flow effortlessly from the cake to my hook to my projects. Not only that, but there was no splits in the yarn, nor did it split when working up projects.
Though I bought this yarn to make the Crayon Water Bottle Cozy, I would definitely buy this yarn again! I can attest to this yarn being machine washable. My boys had left one of their water bottle cozies outside on the grass before it rained. A quick wash, though I did let it dry flat, was just what it needed without distorting or discoloring the colors. Want some pattern suggestions for Lion Brand Crayola Cakes?
