When I did mine I used 4 ply and just did the half stitch and it filled the canvas out nicely and what I made were the flowers of the different states and used them in front of speakers where the covering wore out.Everything came out fine.You can get your yarn{even 3 ply will do} at your craft stores and just go through the yarnsand find their price.Some are as low as $1.99for a 3.5 oz skein.Try on line for Joann, Michael's, Hobby Lobby.Wal-Mart has closed it's craft section so you probably will not find anything there.

I have been doing plastic canvas crafts for over 25 years and have always used plain ole' craft yarn, whatever is the cheapest, on sale or the right color.The plastic canvas yarn is really expensive and very rough.You will find that the regular yarn is easier to work with.The only plastic canvas yarn I will buy at times is the flesh colored.

thrift shops are great for cheap yarn, or an ugly sweater from the half price rack. just unravel it after washing it. I haven't purchased yarn in a store in years.

you can use any kind of yarn, just cheap, basic yarn will work just fine

Yarn made from pandas, and whale whiskers.
