About The Yarn For These Crochet Mittens

For this mitten pattern, I chose to work with one of my all-time favorite yarns, WeCrochet Swish. This yarn is so squishy and warm without being itchy. The fiber content is 100% Fine Superwash Merino Wool. Merino is my absolute favorite fiber.

And the best part, it’s superwash, which means you don’t have to worry about it shrinking or felting. If you haven’t gotten your hands on some yet, you are missing out.

If you are allergic to wool or would like to use a substitute, here are some substitute yarns:

Brava Worsted (100% Premium Acrylic)
Wool of the Andes (100% Peruvian Highland Wool)
Mighty Stitch (80% Acrylic 20% Superwash Wool)
Snuggle Puff (70% Pima Cotton, 30% Nylon)
Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice (100% Acrylic)
