Yarn snob – noun – someone who is insulting to others just because they choose to use a yarn that is inexpensive (i.e. acrylic)
Yarn snobs come in all shapes and sizes. And species. In fact, the biggest yarn snobs I personally know are my cats! I can make anything I want to out of acrylic or dishcloth cotton and the cats will ignore it. I can leave it laying on a table and nothing. The MINUTE I craft with animal fiber (and ESPECIALLY alpaca) the cats are SO INTERESTED in what I’m doing.
This is Rupert. Don’t let the look fool you, as he’s the biggest offender. (And please ignore the craft desk behind him. Remember the post on cleaning? Yeah, that was pre-cleaning)
