My latest favorite yarn!! Review by Emily
Price
Ease of Use
Quality

I have used and loved Mary Maxim Irish Twist and Irish Tweed yarn and never thought I could find another yarn I liked as much. How wrong I was! I am currently using Starlette yarn for a baby blanket and have fallen in love with it. It is so soft and is a dream to knit with. I have already purchased more (in a different color) to make another blanket. When these are done, I am ordering more for a full size afghan.

This yarn was the supplied yarn for an afghan kit I ordered at Mary Maxim....I have not used any other yarn since. It is so soft and easy to work with. Will continue to purchase due to the price, color choices and quality of the yarn.

Love it!! Review by Gail

Ease of Use

I'm using this yarn for the first time to crochet a Sophie's Universe afghan. I chose it for the price and range of colors and good reviews I found here. I'm so happy with my decision! The colors are beautiful and the yarn truly is wonderfully soft and delightful to work with. I'm really happy that this afghan which I'm putting so much work into will be easy to care for, since Starlette is 100% acrylic. I've worked with Red Heart Super Saver some before, and I don't think I'll ever use it again, now that I've found Starlette. Thanks, Mary Maxim!

Wonderful but.... Review by Winds

Ease of Use

Love this yearn, so soft, great colors, works up beautifully., I just wish it also came in a DK weight as well. I find so many things that call for a worsted weight also work as well, or better in a lighter weight yarn. And as long as I am wishing, some heathers, tweeds, and long slow changing colors, would be a dream come true

Very Pleasantly Surprised Review by Lisa

I had never used this yarn, and had a custom order from a client for a baby blanket, and she requested specific colors of this yarn. I was hesitant ordering it online without ever touching it before, but wow was I happy when the package came. Incredibly soft, rich, saturated colors, and super easy to work with. The blanket came out beautifully, and I am now a fan of this wonderful yarn :)

Changes in colors; So disappointing Review by Kristy

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."
