Today I’m going to review Lion Brand Hometown USA. Just like the name states, Lion Brand Hometown USA is made in the USA and comes in a variety of bright, primary colors, variegated colors, and also textural tweed colors. You can easily find colors that match your favorite sports team.
This yarn is classified as a #6-super bulky weight yarn, which makes it perfect for winter projects. Each solid skein is a total of 5 oz. while the variegated and tweed colors are a total of 4 oz. This yarn is 100% acrylic, which makes it easy to care for as it’s machine washable and dryable. The recommended hook size for the crocheters out there is a size N-13 while the recommended needle size for the knitters is a size US 13.
I enjoy working with this yarn because of its softness. It’s a very plush yarn, which makes working on projects go by quickly. I enjoy the different colors in this collection and find it clever that most of them are named after different cities in the USA. Again, I enjoy working with this yarn when making hats, scarves, and cowls for the cold winter months as it provides a lot of warmth. Even though Lion Brand Hometown USA yarn is classified as a bulky weight yarn, I don’t feel as if it’ll be too heavy and weigh you down.
Overall, I think Lion Brand Hometown USA is a great yarn to work with as the end result is beautiful. I really like the softness this yarn provides and the range of different color options. This yarn would make a great candidate for charity projects. However, when washing and drying this yarn multiple times, it tends to become a little fuzzy over time, so that’s something to consider. I still enjoy working with it though, so I do recommend giving it a try and seeing what you think.
