I loved the color of the James C. Brett Marble Chunky; I got the Summer Green. It had a very subtle color play of different shades of green. I had planned to make a shawl that would go with lots of my wardrobe.

Unfortunately, I found it to be somewhat coarse. This may have been improved by washing and drying; I don't know. But I found it to also be very splitty. The problem got so bad that I don't think I will be able to knit with it. And it's a real shame, because I really loved the color (not to mention lots of the other Marble Chunky colors). I just wasn't able to work with it.

            The marble chunky yarn is my standard go-to yarn for projects such as blankets, throws, shawls, scarves and hats, and baby items (cocoons, car seat covers). It is quite well-behaved, works up quickly, and the colorways are just gorgeous. Also, the 200-gram balls are a generous size and a great deal for the money

              Comments about James C. Brett Marble Chunky:

              The reasons I like this yarn so much, as I've stated already, is the variety of colors which are mixed within the yarn itself. Then we have the the chunky ply which makes up very quickly. I'm so glad that I happened upon James C. Brett. Still being a novice crocheter, I appreciate this yarn for making Infinity scarves as gifts as well as slouchy hats.
              I strongly recommend this yarn for any crochet project. It's very forgiving.

                Comments about James C. Brett Marble Chunky:

                Especially like tto make gifts for a new baby with this. Cocoons, hats, sweaters, blankets, whatever. This self striping yarn comes in many color combinations, knits up easily and quickly, washes beautifully. I love to make things for babies but working with baby yarn is not my thing, and as one who had an infant, I want new parents to be able to toss their gift into the washer and dryer and take out something that is still soft and attractive. For winter babies, new parents have been very happy with the cocoon and little hat combination. Several have used the cocoons right in the hospital or for taking the baby home. Making a sweater for next winter for a little one who will be born soon (It's June now.) Little shawl collar cardigan with a matching hat. Very cute. I also recommend the Kertzer made Brett Marble DK weight for all the same reasons. Use both weights often to knit hats and sweaters for my grandchildren as well. Highly recommend both of these products Kertzer Marble Chunky and DK

                    Got many compliments on the poncho and my aunt has put in a second order. Jewel tone color is very attractive and hid my mistakes so they looked an attractive pattern.

                        I have purchased this yarn to be used in the making of shawls for the Shawl Ministry at a church in San Antonio.
                        The women praise it highly. It is a pleasure to work with and makes intriguing stripe patterns
