Short story: Uptown Worsted is Affordable, anti-pilling acrylic yarn in fashion-forward and standard colors that doesn’t feel cheap and crinkly. Matte finish resembles that of more expensive fibers.


I nervously casted on with Uptown Worsted (first time for a sweater and first experience with this yarn). The price was right for possibly screwing up the sweater or not liking the yarn. I AM SO GLAD I CHOSE THIS YARN. It is exactly what I was looking for - soft, perfect amount of sheen, knits like a dream with just enough slick feeling and steam blocks perfectly.


I was so surprised by how soft Deluxe Worsted feels. This is my new favorite worsted.
