If you have stepped foot into a Michaels store in search of crochet goodies, you are most likely familiar with the Loops and Threads brand. It is exclusive to Michaels and is their own product line. The Impeccable yarn is one of my “go to” brands, with a few skeins always stashed away in my yarn bin or a couple always in my cart when I go to Michaels.
It’s an extremely versatile yarn and is really quite wonderful to use. It comes in a beautiful array of colours, so many in fact that it’s easy to get overwhelmed with choosing which ones to take home. It is 100% worsted weight acrylic yarn (4 medium) with a recommended hook size of 5mm. Now with this yarn, depending on the project, I use anywhere from a 4mm up to a 6mm hook with great results. It’s rather soft and I often use it for hats, scarves and cowls…pretty much any wearable item would look great with Impeccable. And with such vibrant colours, they really do make stand out creations and provide such a lovely finishing touch on crochet projects.
Each skein contains approximately 285 yards (260 m) which is plenty for making a project or two. You could easily get 2 maybe 3 baby hats out of it or 1-2 youth or adult sized hats. If you alternate colours, you can definitely stretch that amount out. Its soft and squishy texture would also make it an ideal yarn for blankets or perhaps a throw pillow!
Another great thing about Impeccable is that it is machine washable (medium temperature) and can be put into the dryer. I’ve personally washed finished projects made with this yarn, specifically hats, and they go through the washer and dryer like a dream. Make sure to use a low or medium heat setting when drying for best results with acrylic yarn.
Loops and Threads is fairly accessible to purchase. If you have a Michaels near you, you can find it there. As of a few months ago, Michaels began offering online ordering here in Canada so that opened up the door for purchasing this yarn as well (especially if you aren’t located near an actual Michaels store). I have seen Loops and Threads yarn online listed with Amazon and Etsy but I believe these are independent sellers and not associated with Michaels as the price difference is often fairly significant. In Canada, this yarn sells at Michaels for $4.99 per skein but I often see it go on sale for a lower price or a “buy 1, get 1” deal. You can also use your trusty Michaels coupon which you can find through their website or app.
