Best yarn for this summer sweater top?
If you are like me that love to make crochet summer top or a blouse. We should be considerated the fiber content in the yarn.
I always love to make crochet top with cotton yarn a 100% cotton or cotton.
Moreover if you have more choice of any cotton,linen,hemp,silk and baboo yarn or a blend of this plant fiber is perfect for making summer sweater.
100% acrylic yarn have a fluffy and squishy content and they are not much breathable so you might get uncomfortable feel when you wearing them in the hot and humid weather.
However, if you get a acrylic blend with natural plant fiber it will be great for this summer sweater.
If you like this top ther will be more summer top and cardigan that you will love.
