Lion Brand Amazing Yarn is rated 4.3462 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful yarn! I love the weight and feel of this yarn.  I have made several cowls using Lion Brand's pattern finder and I love them.  I wish my local Joann would carry more of a variety but I can buy them online as well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Want to love it, but can't. I basically look for 4 things when evaluating a yarn: 1.  Ease of use 2.  Softness 3.  Yarn strand quality (without knots, consistent color & diameter) 4.  Value As this yarn is approximately 50% wool, it is very light weight, and I think the other 50% acrylic adds to the softness.  As a crocheter, I can attest that it is fairly easy to work with (except when it is necessary to rip out some from a project, as it tends to snarl together).  The reason I gave this a rating of 3 is because of the bizarre color and diameter (and even texture) variations.  For example, a soft purple has had a brash yellow (~6-8 inches) stuck in the middle, or a soft pink with a skinny strand of off-greenish color plopped somewhere within.  And this is seen in more than 1 skein (which makes for a very interesting scarf).  Value-wise:  ok, seeing as though I purchased this on sale, but would certainly never pay full price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased I have used Amazing yarn to knit several scarves and sweaters. I would have to mention that when knitting a sweater it is best to knit in the round to avoid having the side seams show. It is a soft yarn which is very easy on the hands. I would also recommend hand washing only, as I washed a sweater in the washing machine once with not so desirable results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No problems with my sweaters I've made two sweaters and a long cowl that I double around my neck most of the time. I've worn my sweaters each multiple times and haven't had any of the problems expressed here. One sweater is long sleeves with lace up the fronts, the other has short sleeves and has 4 cabled lace strips up the front. They're both lightweight and warm. The cowl is my go-to warmer and it has held up well -it is a simple garter stitch on large needles in the round. I bought the yarn with coupons so it was a good value, otherwise it would be too expensive.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from unhappy This yarn is gorgeous and fairly easy to work with, but, use it only for scarves or wraps, it does NOT hold its shape at ALL. I knit a sweater and the ribbing stretched out horribly, looks awful. It is very warm and I love the feel of it, but the only place I can wear this sweater is at home. I knit a vest with it and had the same problem, have worn it twice and it is so stretched out that I cannot wear it again. The colors drew me in, I purchased three different colors for different projects when it was on sale. It is too late to return it, so I am just making scarves with the rest. So disappointing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from MORE COLORS!! I really wish all yarn companies would expand their emerald green/turquoise color pallettes! Yellow greens are wonderful, but some folks need the blue-green blends! This yarn would be BEAUTIFUL in an emerald/turquoise/copper/deep purple blend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Says It All! I used this yarn for two seperate scarf/hat sets this past winter. The yarn is amazingly soft and easy on the hands to work with. Both sets have been laundered several times, then hung to dry. Both are like the day I finished making them. Exceptional! So soft and cozy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Roxberri I have used this yarn for a hat, wrist warmers and am working on a scarf. It works up easily and I love the color variations. Just got home with another skein. Great yarn!
