The best yarns for a crochet tank top that will keep you cool
No longer are synthetic yarns our main option for summer crochet and knit garments. Tencel, lyocel, cotton, bamboo and linen are readily available at our favorite yarn stores and online shops. This thrills me because I live in a warm climate. I have a whole post on warm weather yarns.
Of course I made an orange version of the Verity tank top (I use orange more than any other color) out of Lion Brand coboo yarn and the two tone show below is Lion Brand Truboo yarn in silver and slate. My third was made with paintbox cotton dk in melon sorbet. I have a video review of truboo yarn here.
