Great cotton yarn, but ball band classifies this as worsted

By Diane

Pros

  • Even Color Distribution
  • Machine Washable

Cons

  • Slightly splitty

Best Uses

    Comments about SMC Multicolor:

    Ball band classifies this as a "4", medium weight, not a DK. I was modifying an existing pattern, so for me it wasn't a big deal, but this may be for some who buys it with a specific pattern in mind.

    It is a bit splitty, but much better than many other cotton yarns. Using a pointier needle helps cut down on this. I did find several knots in one ball, but the rest seem to be fine.

    Aside from these things, I do love this yarn. It is soft, easy to work with, and the color distribution is great - no odd pooling/blobs. I would definitely use this yarn again in the future.

      Comments about SMC Multicolor:

      The color mixes of this yarn are bright and happy. They don't knit into stripes.It is soft next to the skin. My only concern was that on occasion there is a fine thread that separates from the rest.
