Vanna's yarn is so soft and the quality is outstanding! A finished project is so beautiful with this yarn...would love to see a lavender baby yarn
This yarn does tend to split, which slows me down while knitting and crocheting with it. It also requires me to create a really long join when doing a Russian join (usually longer than the 2" recommended), and it often unravels a bit unless I do a really tight stitch right where the ends are. It's also not very soft, like most other baby yarns are, even after washing. While it's alright for a blanket, I'm not using it for hats or sweaters..it's kind of itchy on sensitive skin.
This is a pretty but annoying yarn. It splits like you would not believe, and it pills and fuzzes in the course of normal working. Might not be a bad choice for softies, but I will not be using this for a blanket or apparel again.
Would not use for baby blanket. For other items it was very easy to work with.
Don't buy this thinking it is baby weight yarn. It is closer to worsted weight. Bought to make Barbie clothes and it is way too heavy.
I love Vanna's yarn and have used it many times. This time I made a baby afghan, had yarn left over and made 3 pair of booties and a hat. Making the sweater is driving me crazy. The yarn has been splitting right from the start of the afghan and seems to get worse with every item I makle. I never had this trouble before with this yarn. Doesn't look to bad except when I got to the sweater. You can see every thread I missed because of splitting.
I saw a pattern at Lion for a baby throw using this yarn, I was hooked. Then I purchased a color card and was doubly hooked. Beautiful results. For everyone complaining about having to gut the skein to get started I offer this: just remove the label and unwind the yarn from the outside. It doesn't take anymore time than pulling yarn from the center and there are no tangles and no wasted time.
Great color range, and I do keep coming back to use it for a wide variety of projects. I'm not sure why. The center is, more often than not, tangled SO BADLY that I have to cut it out before I can use it as a center-pull. It splits often while crocheting. Finally, calling it "medium weight" is a bit of a stretch. It is very fluffy and works up quite puffy and loftily, which can be wonderful, it doesn't really act like I think worsted weight should. weight should.Finally, calling it a medium
