Super Soft Review by MARILYN
Price
Ease of Use
Quality

I bought some months ago and only recently began to use this; now I am rushing to get more before they are gone! The colors are perfect, and the yarn is sooooo soft! It is slightly thinner than aran, of course, so if I am trying to use this instead, I just go up one on hook size. LOVE this yarn!

Not my favorite yarn Review by Helen

Ease of Use

The pull skein was awful. It seemed like I spent more time untangling the yarn than I did crocheting. The yarn itself was just ok. Not particularly soft. I did really like the color I got. It was called Watermelon. Really pretty pink.

Disappointed Review by Muriel

Ease of Use

I recently bought this yarn in Soft Grey for the first time to make the Grace Throw. I like it very much. I usually buy a competitors name brand yarn that comes in 8 oz skeins and found I liked this brand MUCH better, especially for the difference in texture (this one is much softer). Unfortunately, because there are so few color choices, I have no choice but to go back to the competitors yarn. The fact that this yarn isn't available in the basic colors, such as white and black, completely confounds me. I have an afghan to make that needs both, with white being the prominent color, and am VERY disappointed that I can't use this yarn.

Why the huge price increase. I bought the big balls last year for $4.49!

Ease of Use

I bought the knit lace ripple afghan kit that includes this yarn, and I love the softness and ease of use of the yarn, but I note that it is out of stock in all colors now, so I hope you have not discontinued it.

Hopefully you are not getting rid of this product, I really wish it came in more colors there use to be a sorta white color some lighter colors would be nice like greys and peaches or a yellow, this product is great for me because I end up never having enough of the smaller balls this product is softer than caron and gives you much more and it is great for my charitable donations Please do not stop making this product I would have to find something else close to the quality and softness of this product

I purchased some of each of the colors for a sampler afghan. All of these colors go so well together that I can't wait to get the sampler completed. This yarn knits up beautifully!! Additional colors would be fantastic.

Another of my favorite yarns. Review by Janice

Ease of Use

This is a nice soft yarn with plenty of yardage. This month I have made many hats with matching booties and still have lots left. I wish it came in more colors that are suited for babies. I used the tan to make a straw- like hat with a ribbon band and daisy flowers.

Amazing Value! Review by Diana

The day we visited Mary Maxim's this yarn was on sale, so my daughter, granddaughter & myself all bought some, we were making afghans, scarves & hats. What a wonderful surprise! Its vey soft and the weight is perfect, not too warm, but plenty warm for winter! There was so much yarn we made extra hats & scarves for gifts and charity. I also wish for more colors to make brighter colored projects, love this!

I knit and weave. In other words, I have a room full of all kinds and varieties of yarn. I thought I'd give this a try and am amazed with the quality, especially for the fantastic price. Wish there were more colors.
