Bernat Premium Tweeds

Bernat Premium Tweeds is a step-up of regular value acrylic yarn. Most know, acrylic yarns are not the same product across the yarn spectrum. There is truly value acrylic that is rough and stiff and crossing over to medium levels to premium levels of acrylic. This is one of the highest levels of quality of acrylic applied to the yarn.

This yarn is super soft due to the quality of the acrylic used. This is called tweeds. What are tweeds anyway?

Tweeds are the look of handspun yarn where pieces of the barn or hay or other fibres get caught into the fibres as they are handspun. If you look at historical yarns, it was rare to see handspun yarn be perfectly bleached or colour matching. Moving forward to today, this is a simulated hand-spun type of look. The plies are still consistent but extra ‘nefs’ they call them, are added to the yarn to provide the handspun look. The nefs are applied consistently but are not computerized to always appear the same colour or size in the yarn. It truly is random in a product that is heavily controlled by technology.

Bernat Premium has been out for years here in Canada but has now been moved online to Yarnspirations.com for those globally to enjoy this product. The benefit of the premium is that you can have value pricing and softness without having to wash your item first. This is suitable for home decor and clothing alike.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.
