    • Horrible Yarn

      I agree with all the unfavorable reviews above. It sheds, breaks, falls apart, leaves fibers all over the house, let alone trying to seam together any of it. In mid-seam, it just pulls apart. I bought a kit so, as above, I wanted to finish it. I love the designer of the kit...just wish she had checked into the quality of the yarn before putting her name associated with this terrible yarn. Project is finished...looks quite nice, but I don't know if it will hold up. Please save your money...find another yarn!

    • won't use again

      This yarn is soft. That is the only good thing I can say about it. It frays, leaves strands of fiber everywhere. If you make a mistake and have to redo a section you might as well throw what you have done away because it pulls apart and looks terrible when you try to redo it.

    • Sheds and shreds

      I wanted so badly to love this yarn. It's so soft and the colors are beautiful, but it's far too messy and unpredictable.This yarn leaves little teeny fibers EVERYWHERE. I would finish a session completely covered in fibers. Not only that, but this yarns breaks very very easily. All you have to do is tug on it gently. Hopefully you won't make any mistakes, because the yarn breaks every time you need to frog your work. I finished out the project I was working on, but will not be buying this yarn again, especially since it was not inexpensive.

    • Wonderful yarn

      This yarn is soft and cozy. I've never had it shed. Didn't pay attention to the "lay flat to dry" part until I was halfway through an afghan, but that wouldn't have stopped me. Love working with it. The pattern I'm using require two strands and a size 13 needle.

    • not a fan of New Basic 175

      On the plus side, this yarn is soft and warm and I like the colors. I am using "Whisper" and really like the soft velvety light lilac hue. However, it is a messy yarn to knit with. It sheds fibers leaving the clothes you are wearing after knitting with this yarn looking like you just had a tussle with a kitten. In addition, the strands are not firmly connected and it will pull apart even in the middle of a row leaving you with two flimsy ends of yarn. It is like knitting with cotton candy. I am going to finish my project with this yarn because it came in a kit, but I would not use this yarn again. Fingers are crossed that the finished garment holds up without shredding apart.

    • Beautiful Throw

      I used Vanna yarn in a few different colors than shown. I made a color chart in valuable. It came out beautiful and I will use it on my bed on top of a white cotton quilt. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. Love the results.
