Lion Brand Collection wool Stainless Steel review!

Hi today I wanted to talk about Lion Brand Collection’s Wool Stainless Steel Yarn.  This yarn is 75% wool and 25% stainless steel!  It is very very thin I would say a light lace weight.  The Steel gives it a very very neat shine to it and it also gives it some rigidity that normal wool yarns don’t have.  This yarn is only available on their web site or from their store but you do get 273 yards in the cone.   I was lucky enough to get this yarn as yarn support for a pattern I am developing for submission to a magazine so I can’t really talk about what I am making with it.  I will say I love working with this unique yarn and I wish it was more readily available so everyone could try it!  I would also love to see it in a thicker size say sock weight.  It is amazing to me that someone sat down and said “hey let’s try adding stainless steel to some wool and see how the yarn comes out”  Over all I give this yarn a 10 out of 10 because it is the only brand that has anything like this.  My question to you is:  Have you seen this yarn?  Have you used this yarn?  What did you make? 

If you are interested in this yarn go to:  You can even order the yarn there!


  1. I could not imagine a steel sock. But then I suppose it wouldn't wear out fast! :-)

  2. Thanks for your review, been contemplating making something from it and you have given me further incentive.

  3. Hi, this is Jess from Lion Brand. I just wanted to thank you for your fantastic review of LB Collection Wool Stainless Steel. It's definitely one of those yarns that you have to experience for yourself, and I'm glad you enjoyed it!
