Each season has its own signature aromas and flavors, and we think that Fall is the champion in this arena! From fresh crackling leaves to comforting casseroles baking in the oven, Fall is the season where crisp outdoor scents combine with the rich smells of home to create a deliciously cozy feeling. These scents and flavors of our favorite autumn staples have been transformed into Fall-inspired yarns that you can enjoy all season long! CutRateCrafts wants you to enjoy the best Fall has to offer, so we’ve selected our favorites for your next craft project. But be careful! These skeins look good enough to eat!
On a chilly autumn morning, nothing tastes better than a hot mug of apple cider! The crisp apple flavor makes for a delicious wake-up call! Now, you can feel just as snuggly as when you take that first sip when you craft with Delish Yarn in Apple Cider. When you wear a knit sweater or crochet scarf in this yarn, you’ll feel as comfortable as if you were drinking your favorite Fall beverage all day long. Available for only $11.04.
Fall wouldn’t be the same without pumpkins! We use them in our decorating, cooking, and of course our pumpkin spice lattes! Pay homage to the most popular autumn symbol with Softee Chunky Yarn in Pumpkin. Make a homemade hot pad for taking pumpkin pies out of the oven, or craft a DIY pair of socks with this ultra-comfy yarn. Available for only $2.80.
Pie is a savory Fall indulgence, and there are so many great flavors to choose from! Our favorite is pecan, which translates perfectly in this skein of Nature’s Choice Yarn in Pecan. This easy-to-work-with, organic cotton yarn was grown and spun without the use of pesticides, herbicides or other chemicals. Good for your crafts and good for the planet, you’ll love making a crochet baby afghan or knit hat with this sweet skein! Available for only $7.22.
