    This yarn is fantastic. I craft primarily for my Prayer Shawl Ministry and usually make shawls with Lionbrand Homespun. I will now be exclusively using this Marble Chunky. The size is great for quick finish projects and the length is almost twice a standard bulky skein. The yarn is very soft with a slight halo but knits and crochets up beautifully. The best thing is that you can do detailed crocheted patterns by using the eyes of the stitches and not just the holes between. I was unable to do this with LB Homespun. I would recommend this to anyone wanting beautifully striped items that are soft to the touch and very comfortable to wear and easy to care for.

    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.

        Have been using this yarn for a few years for hats and scarves. It is great to work with and
        I always receive compliments on the item. I think I've used every color for ponchos, hats or scarves. This has to be my favorite yarn.

            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 made all three of my young nieces lace up capelets that they can wear either as a little jacket or skirt over leggings or tights....they would not take them off all day. Such a joy to see their reaction to
                my creation with such a beautiful fiber and affordable price. Each capelet/skirt used only one skein!

                  Comments about James C. Brett Marble Chunky:

                  This crochets beautifully because the color striations show up well in the taller rows. Also could work well with knitted mitered squares. The heading here says it's economical, but check price and your
                  yardage needed before agreeing that it is!

                    I knit 12 eternity scarves for family members this Christmas! Colors are just lovely and the drape is lovely. Since the weather here in Ohio near Lake Erie has turned nasty I am now knitting one for my self!. the amount of yardage is so generous in each ball I got 2 scarves out of each ball!

                    I highly recommend this yarn.

                      This yarn was recommended for a crochet project so I purchased it to make a Christmas gift for a friend. After fighting with the snagging issues I decided to put the project aside for another day. The yarn comes in beautiful colors but is somewhat coarse. I've seen pictures of garments made with this yarn that come out beautifully so it's just if one can muster the patience to work with it. I would still recommend the yarn for these individuals. Not for me, though, I have no patience.
