Curious about Yarnbee yarn & I love this yarn..
Hiya Everyone!

I was curious, has anyone ever worked with the yarnbee fleece lite yarn? I was in hobby lobby the other day, picking up the remaining yarn I needed for my throw, and I was looking at their yarn. It's so soft, and I like some of the colors. Just curious to know how it washes and holds up. Also, has anyone tried "I love this yarn." It is so soft. Haven't tried either, but wanted you guys opinion on them both before buying some and making a mistake. Appreciate any help. Thanks!

I'd love to try I Love This Yarn! but they don't have any greens and the only color that's out I like is the Eggplant. It's more of a wine color and I already have a project stalled out in that color. But it sure feels good and it's certainly inexpensive. I've only bought Soft Delight, so I don't know about the others.

I get "I Love This Yarn" yarn quite often. I love it, but it doesn't come in very many colors. It seems to hold up to washing very well.

I have used I Love This Yarn for a scarf. I washed the scarf and it held up well. The yarn is also soft. However I did encounter several knots.

The reason I bought the yarn was that there were enough yards that I wouldn't have to join more yarn during the project. However, since there were so many knots, I had to 'tink', cut out the knot, and join the yarn several times.

Does anyone know off hand how many yards come in a ball of "I Love This Yarn"? I can't seem to find yardage, just how many ounces. I'm looking into yarns for the cable sampler afghan from the Cables Untangled Book, and I can't find yardage on this. And since it's Sunday, Hobby Lobby is closed...

Hey Ann, I think that 84 yards are in a 3 ounce skien of Yarn Bee Mosaic Twist. I don't know if that translates into other kinds of Yarn Bee yarn.

Thanks, ladies!

I think my Hobby Lobby got more colors in, too, but I'll have to make a trek up there tomorrow after work to see what colors they carry.

Now I have to make a trip to the library to check out the book...

I've used "I Love This Yarn" for one project; working on another one right now. When I worked on my first project, they had only maybe three colors, now, they have LOTS! Maybe four different shades of blue, a couple of green, pink, two shades of grey, a rich brown, an aran color, white, black, red, a variegated autumn colorway, and that's all I can remember off the top of my head.

The two colors that I've used the skeins have come in 355 yards, but I think that the variegated might be a bit less yardage.

I didn't have any trouble with the yarn knotting for my first project, but we'll see how it is for this project. The yarn is VERY soft, and pretty economical ($1.99 per skein for black, and $2.49 for all other colors at my Hobby Lobby location). It's nice to work with, and now that it comes in a variety of colors, I'll be using it much more! I like it better than Caron's "Simply Soft" yarn because it seems a bit sturdier (Simply Soft splits a lot for me) and it doesn't get "hairy" when you're working with it. But it's every bit as soft.
