New Bernat Maker Outdoor Yarn Exclusively to JOANN

New to JOANN Fabrics & Crafts in select locations is the Bernat Maker Outdoor Yarn. Vibrant colours and long striping yarns are available in this new line of yarn.

We all know that regular yarn cannot handle the outdoors. The sun beats hard on the yarn and fades the colours really quickly. This yarn is intended for outdoor or direct sunlight usage. Potentially a sun room or even your outdoor patio.

The yarn is 68% Acrylic and 32% nylon. A tube like yarn that is lightly stuffed in the interior to give it volume. Approx 249 yards are in this yarn. I’ve been playing with this yarn and so delighted that my projects are eating up the balls like crazy. The yarn seems to go a long long way.

I’ve been playing with the idea of an outdoor exhibit. Usually, I would never place a project I make outdoors. The yarn can be rained on but they are saying to me that you don’t want the yarn to be constantly wet either. So if you make cushions or leave it out by accident and it gets rained on, it’s not ruined.

Find this yarn at Joann Fabrics & Crafts. In the future, I will have some free patterns and tutorials to share.

Yarn Artistry

There are some yarn artists that call their project Yarn Bombing. This yarn would hold up to the sun and rain if you were to make something outdoor based like flowers on fences and etc.

Of course, the yarn says Resistant, not Fade Proof. In time, it may fade depending on the weather you throw at it.

For me, I have something in mind for a season to be outdoor… I’m pretty excited! Almost too excited!

  2. I’ve been looking for outdoor yarn in every store I go in. Now I’m hoping it’s something I can afford. LOL… I spend most of my time outdoors crocheting or quilting and like to be comfortable.

  3. We have to wait until May?!?! Awwwwwwwwww! I can see othervMacrame Knuts going crazy, like I am! It’s going to be awesome! Thanks, Mikey!

      I just bought some at the Citrus Heights, California Joann! I purchased the stripes version in a beautiful turquoise and white, and I’m currently hooking up a pillow for my patio. Can’t wait to finish! It’s interesting to work with. It has a LOT of stretch, so I’m carefully watching for consistent tension. I think it would be great for a plant hanger too.
      Thanks Mikey & Daniel for all you do!

  4. Cheryl Clark

    Help! I can not find this yarn! I’ve check three local stores, JoAnn’s online and even contacted customer service! NO One knows anything about this yarn! Help! I have a need for this before summer!

    Mikey, you should have a “tell us about you section”. Why did you and dan move, how is the new place coming along. I love your video tutorials, you have helped me come along way and I have pushed the limit on taking a chance on learning new stitches and making some of my own. LOL God bless you for blessing us with videos, oh and it that a Giant Tennis racket you crocheted. ??? LOL

  6. Kathryn Blacharski

    This is great! Wasn’t having much luck finding outdoor fabrics for cushions. This would be really great. When will it be available? I searched Joann’s website but could not find it yet. Thanks in advance.

  9. Michele L Callich

  10. Jovonne Jones

    Great article! I’m a crocheting fool! Been crocheting since I was 9! I’m now 67!
    Outdoor yarn will be great for me to make cushion covers, Center doily for my giant picnic table, etc!!

  11. Jewel Pengelly

    Iam excitedly waiting for more colors in this Bernal yarn, like real hunter green .

  12. Loujean

    Awesome article going to make some coushins for our deck chairs.

  13. I have always enjoyed Bernet yarns and would be looking into buying this new yarn. I also do not like yarns that are rated and then using a hook, needle that is simply too big/ smaller. I refuse to do that without change in the pattern, if you know of more free Tatting patterns, would gratefully accept them/ or pay for them.

    Why do y’all always send new yarns to just “JUST JOANN FRABRICS?”
    I mean, well, there are other places that y’all can send the yarn to.

    So, do y’all know if there’s a JOANNS Fabric store open. Well, of course it’s weird,
    Oh, is that yarn.

    I was just wondering if, y’all have any other yarns like the outdoor areas.
    The reason why I’m asking is that I get really bad hives, and sneezing, really bad headache, excetra.
    Do , y’all have to leave leave the yarn outsid..

    Be4 I ask this question,

    What’s the new yarn made of.
    I apologize if it’s on the label.
    I’m losing my eye sight and I’m having a really,really, bad headache so,
    If you can tell me what’s the name of yarn, and other colors,
    And, what’s it made of.

    Thank y’all for taking the time to read this.
    I hope to hear from y’all.
    Have a happy holidays for whatever y’all celebrate.

  15. Sharon

    Thanks, for info! Been seeing yarn like this on European tutorials and was just wishing it were available. Looking forward to whole new world of patterns..

  16. Elizabeth Anne Jenkins

  17. Kim Lincoln

    Loved this article!! What about s beach bag? Would this yarn be good for that?

  18. Cindy S

    Saw a typo. It says that you are “delighted it is eating up all the balls of yarn” I think you mean that it is NOT eating up all your yarn, judging by your next sentence.
    But, I love ya, Mikey! You are a great teacher!

  19. Lorene L Lassiter

    I have been crocheting and knitting most of my life as well as bead work. I have wanted to do heavier work for outside but wouldn’t do for the reasons you mentioned. I’m excited to know this is available. Thank you
