Match your Yarn to the Season

Match your yarn to the season by Little Monkey Shop and Little Monkeys Designs

There are so many different types of fibers used in spinning yarn, making it hard to choose the right one for your project!

One way to narrow the yarn choices down is to consider the season in which your project will be used.

Winter projects call for wool, alpaca, and cashmere yarn, or blends of them. This yarn creates warmth, in addition to being soft and often thickly spun. You can consider animal fiber yarns as your cold weather yarns. Use these type of yarns for winter hats, scarves, sweaters, and heavy throws.

Summer yarn projects call for cotton, bamboo, hemp, silk or a blend of these. Plant fiber based yarns create a lighter weight yarn, perfect for warm weather projects such as summer throws or baby blankets, spring and summer sweaters, bags and home decoration projects.

Using the right blend of yarn in the right season is key!
