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.

      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.

      Comments about James C. Brett Marble Chunky:

      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.

                Beginner knitter wanted to knit sweaters for grandchildren, needed a simple pattern and indestructible but pretty yarn. Marble chunky worked out great. The colors are wonderful and gives each one a high-end look, yet it is kid friendly!!

                    Although listed as #5 Bulky it is almost a heavy worsted weight. I have used it in items that called for a #4, but i wanted a little more weight to the item, such as scarves and winter hats. Love the colors, such a variety, from pastels to rich greens and browns.
