Changes in colors; So disappointing Review by Kristy
Quality
Price
Ease of Use

I have used this yarn for years, and I would use no other. All of a sudden, the basic colors I needed (the "old" kelly green, royal blue, cherry red) were no longer available. I can no longer match my projects, and it is breaking my heart to have to return to Walmart to buy Red Heart yarn. Mary Maxim told me its previous factory burned down and a switch had to be made, but I sure wish the old colors could come back. I also strongly support the idea of reduced shipping costs for a membership. I have cut back on the yarn I am buying from Mary Maxim because it costs so much to ship it, and I live in the same state less than 200 miles away.

Club Membrship Review by Pamela J
Price
Ease of Use
Quality

I would like to add a note to all the others regarding the club membership and how it works. I would gladly join if it included free shipping on everything I order. I belong to a few other clubs and that was the main reason I joined them. I think also that a $10. membership and free shipping on orders over $25. would be a great bargain too. I order a lot of stuff through Mary Maxim but I would order much more if I get free shipping. I ran out of yarn for a project I am dong and I had to put through a small order and the shipping cost were more than the actual item. While I was shopping the other day I found a yarn that was similar enough to get the rest of the project done so I purchased it there as opposed to getting it through you and paying postage. shipping charges are a major consideration when I purchase things on-line. You buy what you can afford and then before you get to the end you get shipping charges that make the item non affordable. I think you guys should really give this some thought. I know I would be putting orders in on a regular basis if you did. Now, I just order when I run out of something or I buy a substitute in town with no shipping. I along with many others are loyal to Mary Maxim and order whenever we can, but sometimes price and shipping make it necessary to purchase from other sources to keep the cost down.
The quality of Mary Maxim products is very good. I want to be able to afford to continue using them.

Really Nice Yarn - lovely colors and soft Review by Susan
Ease of Use
Quality
Price

Have made two baby blankets with this yarn, both from Mary Maxim kits, and they were both really nice. One was called Gift of Angels, made in a medium pink Starlette color, and the other was the Cosy Cables in a medium blue. I also used it for the carseat blanket from the Mary Maxim kit. Gift of Angels blanket is now available as a pattern download, no longer a kit. Yardage in this yarn is a tiny bit smaller than some of the other worsted weight yarns out there, but it is comparable to most, and I believe a better quality than the "bargain brands."

I just love working wit this yarn! It is soft to the touch and does not split. It gives great stitch definition to one' s work. I would recommend this yarn for babies and toddlers and to make yourself a soft, warm sweater for the Fall and Winter.

good value Review by Barbara

this is a great yarn but be aware that it is stiffer than caron or baby yarns. I would use this only for afghans or ponchos, washes up great.

Great Quality/Texture Review by Eloise
Price
Ease of Use
Quality

The gray Starlette yarns have a very nice texture that works up very well. I found the black to be of a softer texture than the grays so replaced the black in a poncho kit with another shade of gray, which was a successful switch.
