I made two beautiful, soft, airy scarves, a baby sweater, and a lap afghan with this marble chunky. The yardage is long and the price is a great value for the quality and beauty of the yarn.

I should have known as soon as I opened the box that this yarn would never do for making an afghan. It was marked: "Will knit up as chunky for most patterns." It is thin, stringy, stretchy, and not all that soft. I was going to make an afghan with US13 needles, but I don't want to interact with this huge disapointment of a yarn for that long (and, since it really isn't chunky, I won't have enough for a decent size afghan). I even knit a swatch in US10 needles to see if it would work for something else. Even at US10, this yarn was a disappointment.

    Comments about James C. Brett Marble Chunky:

    I crocheted a giant granny square baby blanket with this yarn. I love it so much I am making a big one for myself. There are a lot of yards in this yarn by weight, so it goes a long way. The color changes are lots of fun, and turn out looking good. It machine washes and drys. I'm knitting a scarf from it now, it is very soft.

        I used the green marbled and the varigation made a lovely blanket. Enough of a varigation to be interesting but not so much it hid the lovely pattern.

          Comments about James C. Brett Marble Chunky:

          I've used this yarn on multiple projects and am constantly asked to "make one for me" when others see something I've made for someone else. It's colors are bright and deep and it gets softer with each wash. This is my favorite yarn.

                  I made my granddaughter an infinity scarf with this yarn. Everyone commented about how beautiful the yarn is. It has subtle shading and is just gorgeous. It's also very soft. I'm going to buy more for other projects and can't wait to knit something for myself from this yarn.

                  Marble chunky was recommended by shop owner for charity knitting for foster kids. Made wonderful soft scarves that didn't look cheap or chintzy. Knit for boys because they don't get much, and there were some lovely "boy" colors.
