Great choice for worsted weight projects Review by Carolyn
Price
Ease of Use
Quality

Starlette is becoming my favorite worsted weight yarn. It is very soft and fun to work with for crochet. It is a lot softer than some other popular brands. It turns out great in afghans and small toys and dolls. I haven't tried it yet for garments, but I'm sure scarves and hats would look awesome , too. The price is comparable to other worsted weight acrylics. Try this you won't be disappointed.

Great Balance Of Price And Quality Review by Kit
Quality
Price
Ease of Use

Not the absolute best quality I have worked with, nor is it the rock bottom in price. But a cheaper yarn would not typically be nearly as good quality. And most yarns this good would be more expensive. So I hated to rate the yarn down even to four stars on either count, but I have used yarn that split even less and had crisper stitch definition, and cost a lot more. You can get slightly better yarn if you are willing to pay much more for your yarn, but I do not think the super high priced yarn is worth it. I have used yarn that cost less, and that was not worth wasting my time on, because the project reflected the poor quality of the yarn. This yarn almost rates a five on quality, and almost rates a five on price, making it a very special yarn overall.

I recently made slippers with two strands of this yarn held together. The Wrapped Slippers are very warm and soft. I have made other projects with this yarn. All the projects ("kits") that I have tried have suited this yarn well. It is soft, easy to use, and comes in lots of great colors.

A great multi-purpose yarn, from head to toe, and beyond.

My latest favorite yarn!! Review by Emily

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

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
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.
