Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4.8 out of 5★ by 4reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Standard Worsted Acrylic Yarn, except it's soft This is a standard worsted weight acrylic yarn, which means that it's the most popular size and the most inexpensive kind of material a yarn can be made of (and still be yarn, in my opinion). Each solid colored ball is 6oz, which is about 170g if you are counting in grams. So, at $3.08 before tax, that's pretty good.I made a hat and fingerless mittens with this yarn, and it feels normal at first. After washing on delicate cycles (machine wash and dry on delicate/cold, recommended), it came out as soft as kitten fur! Okay, I've had Caron Simply Soft yarn before, but every single time, it surprises me how much it changes after that first wash. After the first wash it doesn't get much softer (to me), but between knitting it off the ball and putting on the hat/mittens after the first wash, it gets REALLY soft.If you machine knit, this yarn is also really nice. That is, if you don't touch the ball the whole time (read: if you don't squish the ball). After the first couple rows, you get really nice, free flowing yarn. The way that it's made into a ball makes the center pull nice and frictionless, but only if you don't squash the ball.There is a downside to this nice yarn. The yarn splits. It will split if you tend to split yarn when knitting, and it will almost definitely split if you're crocheting. I knitted a shawl for Grandma this past summer, and she said she'd crochet the edges--well, first night in, she got really frustrated because that yarn splits every other stitch! Good thing that shawl only needs one row of crocheting. So, beware of that. If it was wound tighter so that it didn't split as easily, it wouldn't be as soft (check it up, it's true).For me, it's the perfect, inexpensive worsted weight yarn. If you tend to split yarn when knitting, or if you plan to crochet with it, I'd take a look at this yarn in person before you commit to buying a lot of it. 08/18/2014
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Nice yarn, have used before First used this yarn to make a pretty patterned button cowl for my niece. Ordered more to make her matching legwarmers. We like the yarn because it is charcoal heather rather than stark black. Found no splitting or knots in yarn, works up nicely. 02/18/2013
