2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Is acrylic really that bad? on: April 23, 2013 12:51:45 AM
I use acrylics or sometimes cotton for almost everything, but I got this really nice alpaca lace to make a motif crop-top sweater-thing for my little sister- she's not one for luxury items, but she happened to be in the yarn store with me because it was on the way to the mall and kept fiddling with that particular yarn. She asked me if I could make her a sweater out of it, then was scandalized at the price tag... So I'm going to surprise her with one when she comes back over the summer (she's a July baby, so it's perfect!).

But yes, yarn snobs... oye... I've used lovely acrylics and horrible wools (and the reverse), so it's more a matter of the thread's overall quality and not composition. Be warned: The way it feels as a skein might not be the way it feels as a finished product! My local yarn shop supplies flax linen thread, which feels waxy to the touch but works up to a nice, non-waxy fabric.

Oh. My. BLOB!

That's a pretty show-accurate Jake. I would LOVE the pattern, pretty please!
