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.

          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!!

              Comments about James C. Brett Marble Chunky:

              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.

                Great to work with. Soft, but with some body. I am presently doing a quick afghan, and it just sails along, the variegated colors making beautiful stripey areas.
