"Furry" or "hairy" yarn is often referred to as "eyelash yarn." When you crochet or knit with this type of yarn, the finished result can resemble faux fur. Use this type of yarn to make many different projects:
- Bags, purses and handbags
- Stuffed animals, plush toys and amigurumi
- "Fur" trim on jackets, sweaters or other garments
There are many other creative possibilities, but those types of projects are among the most popular I've seen.
The following eyelash yarns are ones I've worked with and reviewed for your consideration.
"Fun Fur" is the name of Lion Brand's fluffy eyelash yarn. You can use this yarn for crocheting, knitting and many other crafts.
Fun Fur has already been reviewed many times on the Internet, but knitters wrote the majority of the reviews. In my opinion, this yarn is easier to knit with than it is to crochet with, so knitters' reviews won't necessarily tell the crocheter everything (s)he needs to know.
Here's my review of Fun Fur eyelash yarn, written from a crocheter's point of view.
"Fancy Fur" has been discontinued, but this review may still be helpful to you if you're wondering whether to buy this eyelash yarn on the secondary market, or from a local retailer who still has some of this yarn in stock.
