1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Recommendations for Latch hook yarn on: February 17, 2005 11:33:29 PM
I'm looking for some sources for pre-cut latch-hook yarn. I'd prefer good quality and a nice selection of colors for making photo-like designs. Don't worry, I've already seen and used the stuff at Hobby Lobby and it is crap. I know I can buy the yarn and cut it myself, but I really don't have the time to invest in that.

Any recommendations for sources will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Chris

Yeah, that's what I've been using, but it can get a little expensive when you have to buy individual packs at a time and you know you need for instance like 20 packs. Also, the yarn is total crap, and is actually more expensive to order direct.

I'd like more colors and better quality, and I'd even be willing to pay a little more for it if it's good stuff.

Thanks.
Chris

I would really like to know if anyone has a source, or sources, for cut yearns for latch-hooking.

My latest design requires over 29,000 hooks, and I DO NOT want to spend all day cutting the yarn. I'm a full-time computer engineering student, and frankly that takes about 90% of my time in a day. the latter 10% will not be worth living if it's spent making 3" lengths of yarn.

Thanks,
Chris

Hey, I'm Chris in Lafayette. I'm in Blue Monday that my good friend Jerry posted about. We are kind of full in our group but maybe we could plan a Lafayette crafters' night out sometime?

I make lamps and clocks, mostly, but I also really like latch-hook, and I'm trying to get into needlepoint and stuff. I'm also a somewhat accomplished photographer and graphic designer.

Get in touch, lets craft!!!!!
