Worsted weight yarn with a high acrylic or wool content.

You need worsted weight yarn that is very stiff and will hold its shape.  Encore Worsted is great for this (see what colors we stock here). Amigurumi is also great for using up yarn scraps! Just make sure it is a stiff yarn of medium thickness. Amigurumi does not require very much yarn at all.

H (5mm) hook
D (3.25mm) hook

Amigurumi requires a much smaller hook than worsted yarn calls for in order to make a very dense fabric. For learning the technique and beginning to practice, it is fine to use the standard H (5mm) hook. But for this class, we will be using a D (3.25mm) hook.

Darning needles
(optional) Plastic animal safety eyes
Locking stitch markers
(optional) Stuffing (some polyfil will be available in class)
