Reaching Out, One Stitch At a Time

The 5 Most Expensive Luxury Yarns

Most of us use every day, “over the counter” yarns for our projects. I personally love craft stores – the yarn section in particular. But every once in a while I have the urge to splurge. That’s when I go to a LYS (that isn’t so local). My favorite LYS is Patternworks in NH – which is about 3 hrs from here.

I thought it would be fun to dream for a change. So I did some research to find out, if money were no object, what is the most expensive yarn money could buy? You might be surprised at the fiber content of some of these.

I compared everything in yards (weight just varies too much) and then I converted all the yards as close to 200 yds as I could come so it was easy to see the price differences.
