Patons yarns are made from materials ranging from natural fibers to beautiful acrylics. Patons is a classic choice for treasured projects and timeless patterns.

Caron yarns are all about color - you can find every shade of the rainbow. The yarn makes it easy for you to find the perfect color for your project. Caron is also the creator of Caron Cakes, an exciting self-striping yarn that provides you with a full range of colors with half the effort.
