Lion Brand Yarn…..

posted in: Fashion | 4

If you read my blog, you have seen that I started testing quite a few yarn and thread brands and at the moment I am testing an interesting American Brand… Lion Brand Yarns

 

I was always wondering why, lion, well maybe because the  symbolic meaning of lions, as one might imagine, primarily deals with strength. The fact that it is a nocturnal creature means that the lion is a symbol of authority and command over subconscious thought (as night is an ancient symbol of the subconscious – or dream states) – The lion symbolises strength, courage and leadership. In one word Dharma. The roar is considered as one of voices of Goddess. A lion’s roar stops you, it is a terror that shakes you up and draws you into something beautiful.

So once you try LION BRAND YARNS , you might say heureka and stop looking for other brands….. But anyways it;s time to talk about the yarn that I test and not about speculating on the logo 🙂
In the image above you can see that I am wearing a scarf, using the Heartland  skein in mint grey. It worked great in crochet and RPL cord.
Ok let me put it that way…. When I was living in the US, and going to design school, I was using this particular brand of yarn. I always loved the cotton yarn and the variations they offered. Price wise it;s great as well, for every pocket.

 

The MANDALA is a very popular chose and it;s fun to work with, colourful and enough on one skein to make a great project.
 
I really had a great time testing out this type of yarn that you see above… Peaceful Earth is amazing, a fabulous soft yarn, in a wave curly thread and cozy for great winter and fall projects…. I really encourage you to try it out. It;s great for crochet and knitting, but really for RPL. – It works nice for the simple cord only.
The cotton 24/7 is one of the best cotton skeins they have and I can only recommend it.
So I can only encourage you to not only visit the website, but also to try they threads and yarns out.
If you did, please let me know how it went!
XO,
Lorena
