This is a great "basic" yarn for everyday type projects. I've used it for sweaters, afghans, and stuffed animals. Some of the things I've made have been very heavily "used and abused", but this yarn holds up to machine washing and drying really, really well. As an added bonus, it's usually cheaper at Walmart than it is straight from the Bernat site!!! This is one of my "go to" yarns for my knitted and crocheted projects...
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.
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!
An eBay buddy and I are making a couple of granny square afghans together. She started using this yarn because Red Heart Super Saver yarns have become harder and coarser. This yarn has the same "hand" as the "old technology" Red Heart Super Saver. The colors are not the same as RH, but close. Her "signature" is to use this yarn for centers and third row of the squares (counting the center as first row), with Red Heart Soft yarn as second row. I then group the three row squares into a "4-patch square" and crochet a border of this yarn in True Gray around that. Then, the "4-patch squares" are assembled in random color combinations. I ordered this particular yarn from Walmart.com because I couldn't find the colors I needed in local craft stores. "My" local Wal-Mart stores discontinued, for a while, the entire sewing and crafts department. They have reestablished a small crafts department again, but selection of everything is very limited. I was surprised that Walmart.com had the selection of yarns and colors it does.
I like Bernat yarn. easy to work with. The only place I was able to find it was Walmart. Shipping was fast.
I used to use Red Heart a lot, but since its quality has gone down hill and is now scratchy and you can feel the difference, I use Bernat a lot. It is a good yarn for overall projects.
Very happy with this yarn, it is my first time using it instead of red heart and it is much softer.
Same color as in the store and as expected. Shipping was good. All skeins were the same dye lot!!!
i've used this yarn before...it has a soft feel to it and works up well...this batch just hasn't arrived yet...things take longer to get to Guam
This is one of my favorite yarns to work with. It's super soft, the colors are great and it doesn't split. It washes nicely, too! Plus you can't beat the price!
It is a great value, I couldn't find the color I needed anywhere except Walmart online. Now I can finish my blanket.
I was knitting a blanket for my 10 year old granddaughter. She had picked the colors of dark heather and neon orange. Walmart was the only location where I could find a coordinating neon orange. It has worked into a beautiful shaded blanket and is very warm and cuddly since I combined the gray and orange together as one stitch. I was surprised at how inexpensive the yarn was. The shipping charges were less than $1.00 and I received the yarn 2 days after I ordered it.
SOMEONE HAD THEIR FEELINGS HURT AT CHRISTMAS, BECAUSE HE DIDN'T GET A WINTER SCARF.
DIDN'T THINK HE WOULD WEAR A FRILLY SCARF WHICH I HAD GIVEN TO THE GIRLS, SO DECIDED TO KNIT HIM A PLAIN SCARF IN STEELER COLORS(COOLEST TEAM IN AMERICA)
HE WILL RECEIVE THE SCARF FOR VALENTINE'S DAY.
Much nicer and softer than red heart super saver for an every day multi purpose yarn.
