Incredibly soft, very nice yarn
I don't normally purchase acrylic yarn, but this was so soft, and the colors were so saturated, that I gave it a try. I'm glad I did - knitting with it was a pleasure, it's so soft. The stripes knit up in a cool pattern, and it's machine washable! Great for a knock-around scarf or hat that you can throw in the washer & not worry about ruining. This is not the acrylic yarn of the past, it's very lovely, soft and not "plastic-y". I read the other review about knots, and I did encounter one out of 2 skeins.
Quality In Question
from East Hartland, CT
The amount of flaws and knots in this yarn was unacceptable and I paid full price for it. It ruined the garment I was knitting. So disappointed!!
