There is a lot of pilling

Lots of great reviews on this yarn, which is why I chose to do my temperature blanket with the fun colors.
It is a recycled yarn, so there is major pilling. My blanket looks kind of “fuzzy.”
I expected it to be strong yarn too, but it has actually frayed on me at the edges, and I’ve had to do some creative reinforcements.
Hopefully a border around the outside will help.
Not sure I would recommend this for large projects.

Best yarn if you have allergies!

Good quality and easy to crochet yarn, from which I made this shell stitch (crocheted) this shawl. Need to buy more! It is softer after machine wash!

Basic stitch yarn

I’m not a huge fan of the yarn. To me it was hard to work with. I didn’t feel it was a soft yarn. To me it was scratchy. I added a photo of the finished Lil Rascal cardigan. I absolutely love the pattern. I am going to make another with 100% acrylic yarn. I purchased the Lil Rascal Cardigan kit and this was the yarn that came with the kit.

Soft, comfy yarn!

I bought this as part of the Foggy Shores Pullover kit by EvelynandPeter and I love it! It's so soft and comfortable, not at all itchy. Definitely going to wear this sweater all of the time!

Really nice yarn!

I bought this yarn as part of the 2024 crochet temperature blanket kit, and it’s really nice yarn! It works up well, and the muted color palate is super pretty!
