Yarn can be s or z-twisted. To get good stitch definition it’s best to use z-twisted yarn for right-handed crocheters. This review focuses on the best z-twisted yarn mentioned in the Crafty Crochet Review Show.
I remember sitting in my chair and crocheting for the first time ever. It was interesting. I was lucky, I already knew how to knit, so I knew how to hold the yarn and the hook the right way (both pencil-style and knife-style are correct). But I couldn’t understand how my yarn kept splitting. Was I doing something wrong? I tried a few different yarn skeins and brands and some were easier to crochet with than others. But I still didn’t know why. Until years later; when I was introduced to Z-twisted yarn. I fell in love as soon as I tried it the first time.
The stitch definition of it was incredible. I was amazed. The yarn I tried is called Whims Merino from Furls Crochet. They now have their yarn in different yarn weights so you can try it out for different projects.
It is super soft and awesome to work with. Especially if you are a right-handed crocheter. A left-handed crocheter might have problems with z-twisted yarn. Check out my article here to understand why that is.
In this review, I will focus on the worsted weighted version of Whims Merino. It is made out of 50% fine superwash merino wool and 50% nylon which makes it soft and stretchy. Plus once you add the z-twist to it, you will have an amazing stitch definition, like no other.
To make it easier I created a complete video review about this amazing z-twisted yarn – through the Crafty Crochet Review Show which is held every Friday at 12pm, PST on Youtube. You can sign up here for reminder emails.
