Hey there fiber friends. The Perfect Housewarming Throw was born when I came across some of The Hook Nook’s Main Squeeze yarn in the most beautiful blue at my local Joann’s.
Let’s just take a minute to talk about this yarn. It’s incredibly soft and gives beautiful stitch definition. It’s got a bit of a sheen to it which lends itself nicely to a more luxurious feeling finished product.
I would recommend this yarn for all types of blankets, accessories like scarves and shawls, and cozy cocoon sweaters. I wouldn’t recommend this for hat’s or ear warmers because it’s not as springy as I prefer yarn to be for those types of projects.
The Hook Nook offers a size 3 version of this yarn called Small Stuff which would be perfect for baby garments, blankets, and loveys.
The Main Squeeze skeins are surprisingly small, but overall I give it an 8 out of 10 and definitely see myself buying this yarn again.
