If you want your cute little crocheted critters to look like they were run over by a semi-truck, then you can use a normal yarn for Amigurumi.
Look, we get it. You’re on a budget. You don’t want to shell out the big bucks for fancy-schmancy yarn. But let us ask you this: do you want your amigurumi to look like it was made by a kindergartner on a sugar high? Or do you want it to look like it was crafted by a seasoned pro with an eye for detail?
Normal yarn just doesn’t have the same oomph as the good stuff. It’s like trying to make a steak dinner with ground beef. Sure, it’ll fill you up, but it’s not going to impress anyone.
You want your amigurumi to be the talk of the town, right? You want people to stop you on the street and say, “Hey, where’d you get that adorable little unicorn?” Well, you’re not going to get that kind of reaction with normal yarn.
So, do yourself a favor and invest in some quality yarn. Your amigurumi will thank you. And who knows? Maybe one day they’ll even be famous. Stranger things have happened.
