Rated 5 out of 5 by Kitten Knits from Great for crafts! I have never knit with this yarn but I use it routinely for making three-dimensional needlepoint items - especially Christmas ornaments. The yarn is not really thick yet covers beautifully. So the ornaments are easily mailed to customers. There are two primary problems. First, some yarns have different thicknesses. The white is the great but the black is too thin and does not cover as well. Secondly, there are not enough colors. I wish there was a bright or deep red and an emerald green.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KarlitasWay77 from Fabulous newly discovered yarn I saw it in Joann Fabric & gave it a shot for a baby blanket order I had and was truly delighted. I did 2 strands at once , for a thick cloud - like afghan. The outcome was incredible.

Rated 2 out of 5 by iluvjly from Lots of knots and unraveling I love the colors of the yarn I purchased(Fun Bright). I ran in to 4 knots, and a area of the yarn that was frayed and had come apart. This was my first time using this yarn and I'm not sure if I will use it again in the future.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jan9 from Doesn't hold snap in washing I have made cowl/gators/neck warmers with this yarn and I had the correct gauge for the product. When I soaked in a tub of cool water and rolled in a towel to get excess water out, then dried on low the items were completely un usable and a waste. The band states, machine wash and dry. These were to be 4" high by 14" in circumference and the pictures below tell the story. I also sold 4 baby blankets and now will have to find those customers and tell them not to wash them. The yarn is not dry cleanable. BTW, I tried to upload a picture but after 15 minutes it still was not uploaded.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JMan from Great Texture, and Great Look... I have bought this yarn before and it is easy to work with & works up beautifully. I love the finished brushed, soft look to it; this product is durable and lasts and lasts after washings, etc. JRM

Rated 1 out of 5 by MJ114 from too much splitting its great yarn to work with, however, with every skein I've come upon knots or splits. in a couple of skeins, there were multiple splits. it became a aggravating and time consuming to have to restart a skein because of a split.

Rated 5 out of 5 by key wester from great yarn!! this yarn is one of my go-to favorites.. fast, fun, easy to whip up a baby blanket in a hurry, and great for full size afghans too!! somewhat agree that variegated is a little easier to work with, but that is true with almost any yarn.....Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by quietkate53 from I'm Going Back for Seconds First time user, but I'm already planning on buying more. I am not experiencing the problems another user talked about -- yarn splitting and uneven gauge. Delightful colors work up beautifully. I'm just now able to afford something beyond bargain basement, and the difference a few extra dollars make is obvious. Also comes off the skein without tangling, something I have had a problem with with bargain yarns.
