View Full Version : A couple of yarn reviews

I knitted with 3 yarns that I had never knitted with before today.. Here's my humble opinion:

Berroco 'Comfort (http://www.berroco.com/shade_cards/comfort_sh.html)' Worsted Weight (50% Nylon/50% Acrylic) - Although it felt wonderful to the touch, the yarn split alot and came 'untwisted' (loose fibers)

Knit One Crochet Two 'Wick (http://www.knitonecrochettoo.com/wick.htm)' (53% soy/47% Polypropylene)- AWESOME to the touch and to knit with. The stitch definition is terrific (great for a beginner) and it doesn't split easily or lose shape (I FROG alot and some yarns will lose their shape if you FROG and re-knit)

Naturally Caron 'Spa (http://www.naturallycaron.com/shade_cards/spa_sh.html)' (75% Microdenier Acrylic/25% Bamboo) - Loved it's sheen and silky feel. Really pretty and pretty good stitch definition. Did not split easily.

There's my 2 cents. :)
