Details

Ice Yarns, Lorena Colorful is an 8ply/dk cotton blend yarn made in Turkey.

  • 55% Cotton and 45% Acrylic
  • It comes in 50g balls with 160m per ball.
  • Gauge is 24 stitches and 30 rows on 10 cm x 10 cm (4′ x 4′).
  • There are currently 9 variegated shades of Lorena Colorful available to purchase in my store.
  • A 3mm-4mm hook/needle is recommended.
  • The label recommends a warm machine wash.
  • The weight of the yarn is marked as a 3, which is equivalent to an 8ply.

My Observations

  • Ice Yarns Lorena Colorful is a nice soft yarn that crochets up beautifully.
  • The variegated colours work together for a nice stitch pattern.Β 
  • I used a 3.5mm, 4.5mm and 5.25mm hook and I feel like the end result was nice with each of them. (see pictures) I have to say I prefer a bigger hook, but that’s just personal preference.
  • I think it would look lovely as apparel or accessories for the home.
  • Unlike 100% cotton there is some nice stretch in it.
  • I didn’t encounter any splitting.

In SummaryΒ :

  • I enjoyed crocheting with this yarn. With the addition of acrylic in the yarn it is easier to crochet with compared to 100% cotton.
  • I think it would make lovely homewares and I can imagine a nice cardigan or beanie…. I think it would even make some cool socks (I’ve never made socks before…so it’s just me imagining 😊)
  • I’d love to know what you’ve made with the Ice Yarns ‘Lorena Colorful’ Let me know in the comments ⬇️.
