What is Faux Yarn?
Faux fur yarn is a type of novelty yarns that is designed to mimic the appearance and texture of real animal fur. It is typically used in crafting and knitting projects to create items that have the look and feel of fur without using real animal pelts.
Faux Fur is a fluffy yarn that allows you to make all kinds of things fairly quickly due to its bulky weight and great for winter months.

Tips to working with Faux Fur Yarn:
Because it is a novelty yarn, there is a little bit of a learning curve to using it. After playing around with this yarn, I learned a couple tricks:
1. The furry yarn forks up in a thick fabric. Using a larger mm crochet hook helps create a good drape for scarves and blankets. If you are making an area rug or something that needs to be more stable, a smaller mm hook is better.
2. My best tip for working with faux fur yarn is to use stitch markers. Faux fur is a unique yarn where you really need to use your hands as eyes. You are going to use a lot of touching to locate, count, and keep track of your stitches. Stitch makers are your best friend when working with faux fur yarn.
