Mmmmmm... yarny.

Here are the Top 50 Ravelry Stashed yarns that I’ve used and would use again, that I’ve used and would not use again, and that I haven’t used and would like to try.

1, Cascade 220 Wool, 11967 projects- Cheap, decent, useful.
2, Patons Classic Wool Merino, 10445 projects- Where do you even buy this stuff? I've certainly never noticed it for sale...
3, Malabrigo Yarn Merino Worsted, 8421 projects- Soft but too pilly to make a garment. I keep this for accessories or things like tea cozies.
4, Noro Kureyon, 7947 projects- Beautiful colors, as with all Noro. I made cute Christmas ornaments from this stuff!
5, Caron Simply Soft, 7914 projects- I'm not really a fan of acrylic...
6, Lily Sugar’n Cream Solid, 6864 projects- I need to make more washcloths with thiss stuff.
7, Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride Worsted, 6619 projects- I love how this felts, but it gets so furry you have to shave it with a disposable razor. Hint- don't do this while wearing black corduroy pants, or your pants will be full of mohair fuzz.
8, Red Heart Ltd. Super Saver Solids, 6176 projects- Acrylic again...
9, Lion Brand Wool-Ease Solid, 5554 projects- I made my first practice swatch out of this and have now passed the ball on to my brother so he can learn to knit. I can't think of anything I'd want to make from this anyways. I'd rather use cheap 100% wool.
10, Noro Silk Garden, 5410 projects- Beautiful colors and even better than Kureyon in my opinion.
11, Koigu Painter’s Palette Premium Merino (KPPPM), 5094 projects- I heart Koigu. Yesterday we were at a yarn shop and they were unpacking a big box of this yarn. I had to stand there and watch them do the whole thing because the yarn was so gorgeous.
12, Knit Picks Wool of the Andes, 5071 projects- This will be good one day when I am feeling poor.
13, Lion Brand Homespun, 4296 projects
14, Lion Brand Cotton-Ease, 4157 projects
15, Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock Multi, 4086 projects- This yarn always seems to pool. I'll skip it.
16, Manos del Uruguay 100% Wool, 3989 projects- Manos annoys me. I don't like the thick/thin thing, and I guess I'd rather just use Malabrigo as it is similar but more even in size and a bit softer.
17, Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride Bulky , 3927 projects- Good for felting- same as the worsted version.
18, Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, 3751 projects- Uck. This stuff doesn't wear well. Not again! Too many pills and fuzzies.
19, Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock - Lightweight, 3723 projects- I'll use this, but maybe not for socks. The skeins are a little on the short side for me. I do want to make a Chevron Scarf with it though.
20, Plymouth Encore Worsted, 3573 projects
21, Cascade 220 Heathers, 3422 projects- Pretty and cheap...
22, Lily Sugar’n Cream Ombres & Prints, 3384 projects
23, Zitron Trekking (XXL), 3348 projects- I want one of the rainbow-y colorways for socks, but I've never seen one for sale.
24, Patons SWS (Soy Wool Stripes), 3243 projects- I used this for a school art project. My kids liked it and it was perfect for them, but I wouldn't want to knit with it.
25, Rowan Kidsilk Haze, 3203 projects- I love the colors they make this in.
26, Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino, 2917 projects- I wonder if this pills as much as the aran weight...?
27, Pisgah Yarn & Dyeing Co., Inc Peaches & Creme Ombres, 2658 projects
28, Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece, 2512 projects
29, Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock - Mediumweight, 2503 projects- Baby Surprise Jacket?
30, Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick, 2489 projects- My one project of shame is using this. It hides in a drawer and needs to be introduced to the dumpster. I guess the yarn is okay but my project is horrible.
31, Pisgah Yarn & Dyeing Co., Inc Peaches & Creme Solids, 2476 projects
32, Cascade 220 Superwash, 2323 projects
33, Berroco Ultra Alpaca, 2286 projects
34, Knit Picks Swish Superwash, 2226 projects
35, Knit Picks Essential, 2149 projects
36, Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice Solid, 2142 projects
37, Colinette Jitterbug, 2090 projects- Too bad I own only the original, shorter skeins of this yarn. Too little to make more than shortie ankle socks for me!
38, Lion Brand Lion Wool Solid, 2030 projects
39, Knit Picks Shine Sport, 1976 projects- Meh... this was fine for it's project- babie booties.

41, Lion Brand Microspun, 1871 projects
42, Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Merino, 1863 projects
43, Knit Picks Palette, 1765 projects- $1.99 a ball- this will probably come in handy when I am bemortgaged.
44, South West Trading Company TOFUtsies, 1762 projects- Only if I find a colorway that isn't too variegated.
45, Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool, 1756 projects- This yarn intrigues me.
46, Mission Falls 1824 Wool, 1725 projects
47, Rowan RYC Cashsoft DK, 1718 projects
