Could you please tell me the current biggest cotton yarn manufacturers in U.S.?
The big three in cotton yarn production in the United States are Caron, Red Heart, and Lion Brand. Caron is made in North Carolina; Red Heart (a division of Coats & Clark) in South Carolina, and Lion Brand in New York and New Jersey.
All three of these companies make a variety of yarns, from soft and snuggly baby yarns to rich, coarse rug yarn. These yarns come in a variety of colors, thicknesses, and weights. I personally like the Caron Brand for its softness and color varieties!
Crafting with yarn had declined in popularity as people gravitated to the ready-made products sold in the stores. But, recently, with the higher costs of living, there's been a renewed interest in making things from "scratch." Hence, yarn manufacturing will always have a place in our economy, and homemade items will have a place in our hearts!
