I'm looking for a denser yarn for like a heavy fisherman's cable knit sweater. Not red heart! I hate that brand. I need it dense, thick, heavy. Not sure how to describe it but I'm trying to make a really heavy sweater, KWIM?
AS long as it's not scratchy like the cheapo red heart stuff. I went looking at Micheal's site and I can't tell what the yarn is actually like unless I have it in my hands. I would like recommendations before I go over there.
Well if you're just looking for thickness then go for a worsted or bulky weight yarn. But fisherman sweaters are generally knit with wool which is what makes them so dense and warm.. but IMO 100% wool is awfully scratchy and itchy! I have sensitive skin though and really can't bear anything but a wool bend or the softest baby alpaca.
Are you looking for something machine washable or does it matter?
