Where To Buy Bernat Yarn

As a general rule, Bernat Blanket Yarn is the most cost efficient blanket yarn out there. It is very soft to the touch, and has the largest color palette for blanket yarns. It is inelastic, making it ideal for blankets and throws. It is a category 6 yarn with 220 yards in a ball.

This yarn comes in at a little over ten dollars for a 220 yard skein, which is about 5 cents a yard. This is much cheaper than most competitors out there, especially Sweet Snuggles yarn, which is 9 cents a yard.

However, one of my negatives of using this yarn is in its construction. Bernat Blanket has a strong central tube with fuzzy threads coming from the center, and looks a little like a towel texture when viewed up close.

This gorgeous chevron blanket by Repeat Crafter Me is customizable to any size and works up so quickly! This project uses Bernat Blanket Stripes which come in larger cakes and are self striping. Of course, you can also substitute that yarn with separate balls of regular Bernat Blanket Yarn, or just go with a monochrome look!

Of course, I have to give a shoutout to the amigurumi design I created for this yarn! My Heart Pillow pattern works up with just one ball of Bernat Blanket and is the cutest, coziest accent pillow that you could ever wish for.

Bernat Blanket Yarn can be substituted with Lion Brand I Wanna Make a Blankie Yarn, which has a similar texture and the same weight (super bulky). Other blanket yarns, like Sweet Snuggles from Loops and Threads is also a good option, although it is a higher weight (jumbo).

Thanks so much for the article! Have you had any experience with washing Bernat blanket yarn, specifically red? I want to make a red and white blanket but am afraid the red will bleed into the white the first time it is washed. Thank you.

This useful basket is great for holding almost anything! From yarn to toys to craft supplies and more, this basket will definitely come in handy. Super bulky Bernat Blanket yarn is perfect for this tight and sturdy basket.

This cozy, textured blanket is a breeze to make and can be completed in just a few hours with Bernat Baby Blanket yarn. Create interest with multiple color changes (as shown) or keep it all one shade.

Thick, cozy blanket yarns can also be fuzzy, which can make it more difficult to see and count stitches sometimes. To remedy this problem, try choosing a lighter color, or at least ensure that you have adequate lighting to see your work.

To make these patterns with Bernat blanket yarn, you should be familiar with basic crochet stitches like the chain stitch (ch), single crochet (sc), double crochet (dc), half double crochet (hdc), slip stitch (sl st), and treble crochet (tr).

Bernat yarns have built up a reputation for comfort, style and durability over the decades and they are considered an essential textile by knitters around the globe. Ideal for a range of projects from baby blankets to chunky knit scarves and sweaters, these yarns offer something for all the family. The CraftOnline range includes stunning Bernat yarns in pastel colours including pinks, blues and yellows as well as the staple Bernat velvet yarn with its super soft, luxurious feel. Introduce a playful aesthetic to your knits with multi-coloured options and ombre finishes in a range of shades. Burnt orange hues inspire an autumnal feel while block navys and greys offer a timeless classic look. The Bernat yarn range caters to all budgets too with its super value range of solid yarns in colours like royal blue, mint and mulberry.

To begin, I want to share that these thoughts and opinions are strictly my own. I have not been paid or asked to write this review and all comments are based on my own experiences of purchasing and crocheting with this yarn.

Looking at the label of a solid colour skein, we can see the following information: This particular skein weighs 50 grams and is 84 yards in length. It is a worsted weight (4) yarn and the recommended hook size is 5mm. I have comfortably used 4mm-6mm hooks with this yarn that had positive project results but please follow the instructions within the pattern you are using. I have never encountered any splitting, knots or twists with the yarn and overall have had great experiences with it. The types of Handicrafter I have purchased and used are Bernat Handicrafter (Solid and Ombre) and Bernat Handicrafter Scented. They all work up nicely but I have a preference for the original solid colour line. I enjoy the colour options and find that they show off the stitch detail in a lovely way.

Washing instructions state that this yarn is machine washable and can also be placed in the dryer which is a big win. Easy care is always a bonus for me and for those I am gifting crochet projects to. The label does mention that dry cleaning is recommended for large items made with multiple colours. I crochet a lot of washcloths and face scrubbies with this yarn which require a frequent toss in the washing machine. They hold up well, dry nicely and soften up beautifully. If you are making items like face scrubbies or washcloths, I would suggest washing them before use to avoid any colour running. I find this needs to be done most frequently with the bright, bold shades and after the initial wash, colour bleeding is not an issue.

This yarn is very common and fairly accessible to purchase where I am. I live in and Canada have bought this yarn at Michaels, Walmart, Amazon and Yarn Canada. If you prefer, it can also be purchased directly through the Yarnspirations website. I most often buy the small 50 gram skeins which usually seem to be priced anywhere from $1.99-2.99 (CDN).

Below is the yarn I used for this blanket. It was on sale when I bought it, and since then it has been put on clearance and taken off the Michaels website. Sadly, I was told they would not be getting any more in stock.

The yarn I used has shed some, so if you plan to just use the blanket for decoration, then a wool yarn is still a great option. But if you plan to use the blanket often I would recommend a non-wool yarn. Below are some great options!

If you still have more questions (like how much yarn you need, can you wash the blanket, etc) you can also watch the new Q&A video I made below! I hope this video answers all of your questions and gives you the confidence you need to make your own blanket!

I am very new to this. So please for me being clueless. I have a question that is probably very stupid, but How do you connect your packs of yarn? Thank you for any help you could give me! I have been wanting to make me a big yarn blanket for a while.

After realizing how much of a role tension plays on how well the finished product turns out, I ended up going down TWO hook sizes from the recommended hook size (from 6.5mm to a 5.5mm) in order to get a fabric/weave I was happy with. The smaller hook makes the stitches smaller, and I found that working smaller stitches, in addition to this, further helped to keep the yarn from worming. Consider using smaller stitches when working with this yarn.

As I worked with this yarn (through four cardigans now) I noticed that the yarn ends like to wiggle their way out with wear and that the yarn ends shed. For this reason, leave your yarn tails about twice as long as you normally would. This allows you to SUPER weave in your ends (back and forth through several rows and going in several directions) so that if the pesky little yarn end DOES pop free, you can simply snip it without fear that the entire piece will work itself loose and unravel.

This yarn is recommended as hand wash only. While not my favorite thing in the world, it is better than losing your hard work! Hand wash and lay flat to dry. You might consider a sweater dryer like this one from WeCrochet. The less you jostle the stitches (especially in the washing machine), the less chances of worming.

Bernat Blanket comes in a beautiful assortment of shades, both solids and mixtures, making it easier for you to find something to match your home. From cosy blankets, to seriously stylish cushion covers, this super chunky yarn can create a beautiful piece in no time. So snuggle up and settle in with your new home craft love!

Please note - The "Super Chunky" weight classification is for any yarn over a chunky weight. Whilst they are listed as the same weight, Bernat Blanket, Blanket Extra, and Blanket Big are three different super chunky weights (thinnest to thickest respectively).

The Bernat Mill, also known as Capron Mill, and later Bachman Uxbridge Worsted Company, was an American yarn mill in Uxbridge, Massachusetts, that was for the most part destroyed by fire on July 21, 2007.

This mill complex at Uxbridge had been a hub of manufacturing for Bernat, once based in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts. The town of Uxbridge was the site of Bernat's main manufacturing unit in the later 20th century. This was the third largest yarn mill in the U.S. The Bernat mill and the town of Uxbridge have a role in U.S. history, and the history of the American textile manufacturing.

American Civil War uniforms, World War I khaki overcoats, and World War II U.S. Army uniforms have all been manufactured in this mill.[2] Latch hook yarn kits were developed by Bernat, here circa 1968 and the name of the mill changes to the Bernat Mill, then the third largest U.S. yarn mill.

If you love quick to make crochet patterns, then this chunky yarn is for you! I, personally, love to crochet with bigger yarn like Bernat Blanket because for one it makes for a quick project, and secondly it is extra warm (and soft) to use.
