What Are the Yarns Benefits
First of all this yarn comes in 35 shades so you are bound to find something suitable for you for any project.
It works up super quickly – I managed to finish crocheting a Hat in just 2 hours and a matching scarf in approximately 3 hours, so it’s great if you need to whip something up on short notice.
It is surprisingly soft – you can tell its acrylic but it isn’t itchy of squeaky, making quite a cosy and warm hat.
It is machine washable, so would make it perfect for blankets and garments.
What Are Its Drawbacks
It does have a little of that acrylic sheen to it – it is clear that it is acrylic so is perhaps not suited for more discerning projects.
Consistent with other acrylic yarns, it is a little fuzzy, meaning the stitch definition isn’t as crisp.
Other than that there really aren’t any other drawbacks to this yarn. It is great value for money and does its job well.
My Rating
Versatility (does it have multiple uses?) – 9/10
Wearability (how comfortable is it to wear) – 8/10
Workability (how nice is it to work with?) – 7/10
Final Score – 24/30
