My sisters and I used the bernat handicrafter cotton yarn a lot, which we found at Jo Anns, now we cant get it except on line. My question is why isn't it in the store anymore. Thank you.
This yarn separates very easily. I used for crocheting and I had to go back over and over to pick up strands that had separated.
I love the quality and colors available in this yarn. I USED to be able to get the LAVA LAMP in this color, which I personally love, in the 603 yards skein - but that was only in the store and I never saw it again. Other than color selection that is the only way this yarn has any value for me - when I can get this in the LARGER SKEINS at the sale price. I wish Bernat would stop discontinuing their colors too! Joanns has them on sale, I buy and fall in love with them, then it turns out they don't make that color anymore…this happened with several colors like the Poppy Red and Blueberry Blue!
I bought the "meadow" thinking it was blue/yellow. What I got was more of a purple/pink/blue, not something I would use for a little boy. :( The sample pictures are way off from what this yarn really looks like. I think it will work up nice but I've very disappointed in how poor the pictures are
My local store had a wide selection of vibrant colors one and I had an idea for an afghan that this worked great for! With 7 different colors, it crocheted up beautifully. I think I only had one factory discontinuity. I would say, the weight or thickness is different between the solids and multi/twisted colors which made the stripes in my project different widths. But that's okay. I haven't washed it yet and am a bit concerned about bleeding. Overall, good yarn, though!
I just purchased this yarn online. As some have complained it did have a sale price and when ordered showed a higher price. I called Customer Service and was told that this has been a problem, but when I was ready to order, call and place my order and they would make certain that I got the FULL SALE PRICE...worked for me.
I love the large size. My only problem with all of them is you can NEVER find the begining strand.
What good is it to entice me with a terrific sale price ($4.99) but NOT ONE COLORWAY is available for purchase. Joann online is a disgrace!
