Top 10 Yarn Brands

When it comes time to pick a yarn for your next crochet pattern, it can sometimes be a bit stressful. The yarn aisle (or sometimes aisles- plural!) can be an exhilarating, yet overwhelming place. There are lots of different yarn brands to choose from, endless color options, and different yarn weights-- all at different price points.

In order to help make the decision process easier for you, (and so that you don't feel like a deer in headlights next time you visit the yarn store), we've broken things down for you just a bit. We've narrowed down our top 10 yarn brands based on various factors including yarn variety, quality, price, and selection. In no order of importance, you can find our list below. 

Plus, have you ever tried crocheting without yarn? That's right-- you don't always need a skein of yarn to work up that pretty crocheted necklace, or that trendy crochet rug. Check out our article on how to crochet without yarn for a handful of unconventional crochet ideas.

Most Popular Yarn Brands

  1. Red Heart: Known as "America's Favorite Yarn" and one of the most trusted companies, Red Heart has a huge selection to choose from (in terms of both available yarn types and color options), and they can be found in most craft and yarn stores, as well as online. Plus, check out their website for free knit and crochet patterns.
  2. Lion Brand: A family owned and operated company since 1878, Lion Brand known for their quality yarns, helpful pattern support, and wide variety of yarns. Also, together with spokesperson Vanna White, Lion Brand is a supporter of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, donating more than $1 million dollars based on the sales of their widely popular yarn lines, Vanna's Choice, Vanna's Choice Baby, and Vanna's Glamour.
  3. Yarnspirations: The parent company of popular brands such as Bernat, Caron, Patons, and Lily Sugar 'n Cream. You can also find free knit and crochet patterns on their website.
  4. Premier: An international manufacturer that produces a wide variety of luxury yarns, as well as the popular Deborah Norville Collection™ and Isaac Mizrahi® CRAFT™ yarns.
  5. Jimmy Beans Wool: Your online superstore not only for yarn, but also for crochet help via online chat, email, twitter, and more. They aim to be your "local craft store-- online"
  6. Darn Good Yarn: Made from recycled and Earth friendly materials, much of their yarn is created from the colorful remnants of the production of silk saris in Nepal and Northern India. Darn Good Yarn prides itself on providing you with fairly traded and child labor free yarns-- a great cause to support!

Cestari Sheep Wool Company has the BEST yarns - Made in the USA, cotton grown in Virginia, sheep raised in the USA. Wool, cotton, and many blends. Hand kettle-dyed with non-toxic dyes too! I'll never go back to acrylic!

I use I love this yarn and it is possibly the best yarn I have ever laid my hands on. I've tried a lot of Red Heart yarns, but I guess they aren't for me. Everyone has different preferences so a list isn't exactly effective. What is effective is what you would prefer for your yarn.

I love Cascades, they are affordable and many weights and lines to choose from. I find i also choose the Hobby lobby brands as well for softnes and durability.

I use Red Heart super saver most of the time but I have a baby afghan pattern from Mary maxim that calls for Red Heart Baby Clouds, Bernat Baby Coordinates and Mary Maxim Baby Kashmere. I get these yarns for this pattern but my son will use other yarns in the various weight groups. I am not adventurous so stay with the suggested yarns.
