Wool stainless steel yarn has a weird name, but it’s some seriously fabulous stuff. (Also, can we just take a moment to talk about how much I love the packaging?) The lovely folks at Lion Brand Yarn sent me some to try out, and you can read my full review over on Craft Test Dummies: Craft Product Review: Lion Brand Yarn LB Collection Wool Stainless Steel Yarn
Craft Product Review: Lion Brand Yarn LB Collection Wool Stainless Steel Yarn
When I received a sample of the LB Collection® Wool Stainless Steel Yarn from Lion Brand Yarn, I immediately fell in love with the packaging and presentation. Plus, with such an odd name, I couldn’t wait to try it out and see what it could do (and how it would treat my hands). After testing it alone, then incorporating it into several different kinds of projects, I’m pleased to report that the yarn was a ton of fun to work with, performed beyond my expectations, and left my skin completely free of scratches and irritation.
What I loved:
1. The wool stainless steel was easy to crochet and knit, and did not feel at all stiff or rough to the touch.
2. Thanks to the stainless steel strand woven into the yarn, you can make detailed lace stitches and arrange them by hand without needing to block with water. This would be great for holiday ornaments or knit and crochet work that will be hung or displayed…

Holy Moley!!!! When I first saw it I thought it was called Wool Stainless Steel because it was durable. No idea that it had stainless steel in it! And as a Spinster with about 17 fleeces to process, I only buy yarn that I don't want to spin myself, so this goes on my shopping list :D. BTW I love spinning embroidery thread best.
Awesome! Do you spin your own cotton floss?
