You can find my project using this yarn here. I am also working on a CAL using this yarn now. Here are my first 2 months work, here and here.
What Are the Yarns Benefits
This yarn is so soft. I mean mega soft. So unbelievably soft which you would not expect from an acrylic yarn. It makes the warmest, snuggest blankets ever.
It comes in so many beautiful colours – almost 100 shades in every colour imaginable. A veritable rainbow! And it is such good value for money – at only £1.99 you can use it to make all sorts of items for little cost. Once I have got through some of my enormous stash I may grab some more of this yarn to make a brightly coloured cardigan.
It is lovely and smooth . It glides over the hook so smoothly and is lovely and soft in your hands. And for an acrylic, it also has wonderful stitch definition.
What Are Its Drawbacks
The only slight issue I had was a minor amount of piling. When exposed to friction it does fuzz up a little – this was a particular problem for me when I would a centre pull ball too tightly and ended up a big tangled mess. So my advice would be to relax the tension a bit if you choose to wind it into a centre pull.
