I was very surprised that this inexpensive yarn was as soft and smooth as it was for such a low price. Bernat Super Value Yarn lives up to its name. I have used Red Heart's super saver yarn and found it to have a bit of a rough, scratchy feel as it slides across my hands when knitting or crocheting. Bernat Super Value is much softer. The color I bought is much more beautiful than I expected as well. Add to all this the fact that my site-to-store order arrived much sooner than promised!
I purchased 4 skeins online and even though it says "no dye lot" on the label, the match to a skein purchase locally was not 100%. The skeins purchased together matched beautifullyThe difference isn't enough to make a difference in my project, but it would if the project was large and 1 solid color - like an Afghan.
I'd give 4 1/2 stars if I could. The yarn itself is very nice and it's not the manufacturers fault I didn't buy enough thefirst time. But I thought the point of "no dye lot" meant every skein everywhere matched.
The yarn is Bernat Ombre, but it is not Big Ball, as advertised as a Memorial Day Weekend Special. On line it states 10.5 ounces, 582 yards; received Super Value, 5 ounce, 275 yards. Walmart owes me 921 yards of Bernat worsted ombre in the color Sea Taupe.
