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!
