    • Best Yarn!!*

      I am making a blanket out of 4 balls of this yarn I am on my third and I love the way its coming out the yarn is very light but easy to work with and the colors are beautiful I'm using 4 different colors and the pattern I'm following is on this website called Simple Striped Blanket I can't wait until I finish it, I think it will be my best blankets made yet!!! Will definitely buy more :)

    • Amazing colors

      Love this yarn and am always amazed at the color flow. Have made shawls, ponchos, baby blankets...leftovers work for charity hats, socks. Our WalMart selection varies, so try to grab when I can. Have purchased the mill ends from the web site, and they are great for baby blankets or stroller blankets. Doubled, it resembles a soft, loose chunky yarn.......and is STILL easy to work with. A refreshing change, and no ends to weave in!!

    • fit to be tied at times

      I love the weight and feel of the yarn. It is usually a joy to work with...BUT it seems every other skein has serious feed issues. Stopping constantly to untangle the mass that has pulled free is annoying to say the least. And, as others have commented, the dramatically uneven lengths in the colorways leaves smaller projects feeling unbalanced. Lastly, the difference in where the colors start on any given skein of a color and dye lot also makes it hard to really exploit the lovely pattern striping many of the projects display.

    • Beware how easily this yarn splits!

      I ordered some duplicate shades of Mandala yarn after being given some Mandala yarn purchased at Wslmart Supercenter. I don't think Walmart sells GENUINE Lion Brand yarns! The Mandala yarn I was given split right & left on me. Then the Mandala yarn I ordered from Websiite did the same thing! The color shadings may be super! But your knitting needles catch in the yarn almost every stitch! You hsve to watch verry carefuly that your yarn doesn't increase the stitches unnecessarily!

      5/17/2018 By Virginia

    • Awesome

      I absolutely adore the mandala yarn! Its texture is soft and the drape for shawls is perfect!. The colors are beautiful.. Some vibrant, some soft and cool. I have yet to see a color I don't like! I have my favs, but none that I wouldn't buy! I am starting a new shawl for my Grand daughter, (she wants one like her moms!) her moms is in Warlock, but she wants purple, so Magic Moon, and Wood nymph together should suit her just fine! :) I will buy again. Thanks Lion Brand for making an awesome product. Just wish it was as accessible offline as it is online! :)

    • Soft and flexible

      This yarn is super soft--so easy on the hands as I knit. I am working on a simple triangular scarf with an eyelet edge and center eyelet spine on size 8 needles. The yarn-overs don't slide off the needle before I am ready to knit them, which I like. The drape is flexible, but it keeps its shape well. My biggest decision is whether to start my garment from the center or outside of the cake!

      5/16/2018 By Misty

    • Best ever!

      I love this Mandala yarn and the way it gently moves from color to color, the way it always seems to blend perfectly, no matter how different the colors are. This is one of the best things to come along in yarns in a long, long time.

    • Soft, Colorful Yarn

      I was intrigued by the Cobble Hill Pullover pattern using Mandala yarn, so I ordered both the pattern and 3 balls of the yarn. The pattern is easy to follow, simple stocking knit. Two of the 3 balls of yarn began with the same color sequence, so I am knitting 2 sleeves at once on one needle with 2 balls of yarn so that the color progression on the sleeves matches. I will use ball 3 for the front, then use whatever is remaining for the back. Thank goodness 2 of the 3 balls began at the same place! I love the feel of the knitted piece. I'm using a fairly small needle, size 6, and the drape is very nice. I saw a prayer shawl done with a #10, and it did not have the same soft drape as using a smaller needle. I highly recommend this yarn.

    • Hooked on it!

      I do love it and am still in the blanket making stage. Thinking about new ways to use it. My only complaint is that some cakes don't start with the same "color" and sometimes I have to cut some away. Can you make more boy colors?

      5/16/2018 By Deb

    • Beautiful yarn

      I really love mandala yarn. It is perfect for beautiful shawls and wraps. The problem is that it is nearly impossible to find in Australia. I have ordered from Lion Brand in the past , I don't think the yarn itself is over priced , however the cost of shipping puts this beautiful yarn out of my price range.

    • My favorite yarn

      My favorite yarn- I love all the old and newer colors. It took a bit for me to get used to working with DK yarn weight because I was used to worsted weight. I have 2 complaints: 1. It’s very difficult to get the colors you want- LB let Walmart sell them but it was limited stores and had super slow releases. People were going crazy trying to buy, trade, and sell it- it was the Tickle Me Elmo of the yarn world. I still don’t have but one roll of two of the newer colors. My Walmart hasn’t had any in stock since Christmas of the old colors. I can only get it if I can find it online or directly from LB. 2. That brings me to the 2nd issue- at Walmart and on LB they were $4.99 a roll. Perfect! Now they are 6 to 8 bucks a roll. It took a lot of the steam out of my sails for buying the yarn. Although- when I can find it at Walmart it’s still $4.99 a roll and occasionally on sale. All in all I love it and enjoy all the colors. It works up great. The colors don’t fade or run. There is a great color assortment. At the height of the Mandala craze there were some balls that had breaks and knots like a mill end ball or spots where part of the yarn dye didn’t take but I haven’t seen anything like that in months. Another plus is that you can buy mill end balls- which I did and I lovooove them for their uniqueness and variety. If they were easier to get and still the cheaper price- even with the hiccups at times- I love it enough I would have given it all five stars.

    • Excellent yarn

      I usually don't like all-acrylic yarn. Well, Lion Brand "Mandala" has definitely changed my mind. It is a pleasure to knit with, and I love the colors. I can't wait to see which color is going to come up next. I'd purchased four cakes of mill ends, just to see if I liked the yarn, and because I enjoy surprises. Well, I certainly did like the yarn. I've knitted one sweater with it, and I'm at work on my second sweater using "Mandala." I'm finding it a little "splitty," but that could be my needles. I'll try using ones with blunter points. An excellent and fun product indeed!

    • Mandala yarn

      This yarn has become my favorite yarn of all time. Currently I am making a Kimono with the color Genie. The colors blend so smoothly that it is amazing to work with this yarn. I love the softness of the Mandala yarn. It has become my go to for my projects. Please don't stop making this fabulous yarn.

    • Ms

      I enjoy this yarn it is so soft and the colors are great. Sometimes I don't like the changes in color but that is the Wonder of Mandala! A lot of the girls cut it but that spoils the flow of colors.

      5/15/2018 By Betty

    • My New Favorite!

      I have made/sold no less than 30 scarfs made from this yarn. Chimera and Echo Falls are my favorites. They not only have gorgeous striping colors, the scarfs are soft as a cloud to wear. Pattern L60239 mesh scarf on this site is absolutely gorgeous using this yarn.

    • So versatile to work with

      Lion Brand's mandala cakes are my favorite yarn to work with. The colors are so vibrant. I have made a few things with these beauties. The squared waffle stitch is my favorite because the yarn is so soft and makes these blankets feel so squishy! Would love for these to be available everywhere.

    • THE Best Cake Yarn

      This is by far the best cake yarn I have used . It works up quickly and is so soft. It washes nicely as well. I have crocheted a blanket and a scarf with this yarn as well as knit several scarves with it and every time it comes out beautiful. The color changes seem to change perfectly no matter what I am making. At the moment I making a Secret Paths scarf and the color changes are just perfect. Thank you Lion Brand for getting this yarn right!!

    • My Mandala

      I love the light weight of this yarn and some of the lovely combinations. I have made several items, like scarves and small blankets, that were quite a hit. Some of the colors are a little much for me, but the ones that do not try to include as many different colors work up nicely. Thanks for this brilliant new yarn.

      5/15/2018 By Judy

    • I Love Mandala Yarn

      I have made several queen size afghans with Mandala!! The colors are all so beautiful!! My favorites are Genie, Warlock, Serpent and Chimera. I am slowly building up a stash. I plan to buy all of the colors including Mandala Baby!! Keep creating new colors!! Also Walmart need to keep a better supply of this yarn!! I was very happy with my mill ends purchases of this yarn!

      5/15/2018 By Janice

    • Mandala yarn

      I absolutely love this yarn. I love the way it works up the way the colors come together. The way that the yarn drapes in shawls the lightweight that a blanket is after it is made. The yarn itself is absolutely amazing. The downfall to this yarn is we are stuck with the same colors. I have five Walmarts within a 30 minute drive of myself and all of them have the same colors not one has a different color from another. I have tried to find three certain colors for the last 4 months have not been able to find them I even looked for them in a different state and have not found them I feel that we are being forced into buying the yarn from the website for almost $4 more a scane plus shipping. I have purchased hundreds of dollars in the mandala yarn I have made numerous things in mandala yarn and to not be able to find the colors that I need to finish the projects I have started is very disappointing I don't think that it is very business friendly for a company to be making it so hard to find colors to finish projects or to give certain places a monopoly of those colors so that other places can't get them at all. I would give it a higher rating if I was able to get all of the colors that everyone else has been able to get but unfortunately I can't do that due to the lack of supply that we have here. The price online I find is way too much money to spend per scane like the newer Yarns they have come out within the stores so if I cannot find colors needed I will no longer be purchasing mandala yarn.

      5/15/2018 By Shannon

    • I'm Knitting Away

      I really enjoy working with this yarn! The colors are fun to watch changing as I create shawls, children's sweaters, and baby blankets. I wish I could post pictures here but you can find many of my creations on the Mandala Facebook page!

      5/15/2018 By Mary

    • Having trouble findin locally...

      I love this yarn. I am having trouble finding it locally. The Walmart store are not restocking. I have been told by several department managers (different locations) that their stores will NOT be restocking any Mandala. Please make stores like JoAnn, Michaels, Hobby Lobby, etc. able to carry it. I am not going to pay the price plus shipping from Lion Brand website due to prices being unreasonly high. Please help to make it easier and more affordable locally. I live in SE Louisiana and need to find in my area. Thank you for the great yarn.

    • Disappointed with purchase.

      Not bowled over by this yarn . I believe the guage is off. More like a three. Some of the color combos are a bit garish. Might purchase if the yarn had more sophisticated colorways. Seems to be more crochet patterns for this yarn than knitting patterns. I don't think it stacks up to some of their other lines.

      5/15/2018 By Blondie

    • Love this yarn

      I have purchased 15 skeins of the mill end yarn and have not disappointed in any of them. I love the feel and texture of this yarn and how the color blends unravel . It is now my new favorite. I also want to praise their customer service, when I was unable to go to the post office to pick up a delivery they were very helpful to ship it to another address rather and it was very quick.

    • Gorgeous Colors – Wonderful Feel

      I am utterly in love with lion Brand mandala yarns. The colors are phenomenal, it feels wonderful when I net, I keep buying cakes with many different projects in mind. I sent the block stitch baby blanket and a baby to my friends in the Netherlands who are expecting in August. I have a full-size blanket I'm currently knitting and baby blanket projects all over my living room. My absolute favorite yarn, without question!

    • Love, love, love this yarn.

      Thank you Lionbrand for creating Mandala. This yarn is absolutely delightful to work with. It's the perfect weight for everything I knit. I love most of the colors and the ones that don't always fit what I'm knitting I like to cut and reattach to create a cake of my personal colorway. Mandala is fab-u-lous!

    • More Mandalas, Please

      Love Mandala yarn! The 3 weight is perfect for so many projects. I don't like bulky yarn but for those who do using double strands creates amazing variations. Since it can be washed/dried on the hottest settings great for items that need this durability, such as nursing homes and baby blankets. I can't wait to see the Baby Mandala I keep hearing about! Truly, I wish there were solids to match this yarn and holiday/special occasion colors.

    • One of my favorite cakes but...

      I love working with this yarn, I tend to prefer it over many of the other caked yarns BUT, I refuse to drive all over to search for new colors. My local stores (and they are plentiful as I live in San Antonio) do not stock any of the new color-ways and the older color-ways (which I still love) are always very limited. I have ordered from the website but I dislike paying more online than I do at the ONE local retailer considering I also have to pay shipping. Offering it at more than JUST Walmart is definitely something worth looking into. I LOVE all of the current color-ways but would like to see a few more geared towards males. I can’t wait to get the opportunity to work with some of the newer color-ways should they actually become available in my local area. I feel that all the colors should be stocked in all stores to at least see if they sell before just deciding they won’t. It would also be nice to see coordinating colors sold as well.

      5/14/2018 By Jessica

    • Mandala

      I love what I've used so far and have tried to purchase every color. I have seen and read about new colors but can’t find a place to purchase which is VERY disappointing! Would love it if solid colors to match (or an alternate suggested yarn) could be purchased too! I gave it 4 stars because of having to drive to every Walmart in a 60 mile radius. LB must do better.

      I love this yarn. It works up just as beautifully with a k hook as it does with a g hook. I love how soft it is. Can a request a color combo, I would love to see a tan, chocolate, cranberry combo.

    • Need shorter color variations in Mandala yarn

      I'm presently knitting a narrow scarf for an elderly woman in Mandala "Wood Nymph".Thhe yarn may have purple, lilac, violet, cream colors. But it also has various pink shadings! I feel the pink shadings are too long so that I don't even get very many of the purple, lilac,violet, cream shades in my scarf! Please consider shortening the amount of pink shadings in this yarn so that more purples, lilacs, violets, & cream colors can make an appearance in my narrow scarf!

    • Mad for Mandala

      This is my all time favorite yarn. I have bought at least 100 cakes since it came out. I have made several blankets, scarves galore, a vest, and a color block cardigan with this yarn. It washes up nicely and is super soft. I love the yardage. My biggest complaints are that buying it on the Lion Brand site is $3. more than it is sold for in the Walmarts. My other complaint is that it is ONLY available via Walmart, who stocks it in a really crappy manner and does not keep up with restocking....or I can pay almost double to buy directly from Lion Brand and that makes zero sense to me.

    • A Favorite

      My first Mandala purchase was Chimera. I made a long sleeve, hooded cardigan which is quite lengthy. I think I used 5 balls total. I loved the colorway and loved that it’s a DK yarn. I just bought 4 more balls or cakes of 3 different color ways. I’ll probably make more cardigans or pullovers with them. I’m so excited!

    • Mandala

      I love this yarn and have purchased every color. Recently I have seen and read about new colors but can’t find a place to purchase which is very disappointing! Would love it if solid colors to match could be purchased too!

    • Great!

      Generous length makes it perfect for good sized triangular shawls. Nice on the hands, non-splitty, great colors and value priced! There are lots more colors than what is listed on Lion's website.

    • Wonderful to knit with

      This is my favorite cake style yarn. It knits up beautifully for lap blankets. Love it!

    • Scarf for freezing kid

      I made the man’s knitted scarf for my Army daughter. The yarn knits up beautifully, doesn’t split, doesn’t tangles, releases from center of the roll perfectly. Nice and soft and no synthetic smell as some have.

    • Amazing yarn

      This is a truly fantastic yarn. The colors are clear and move from one to the next in a pleasing way. The yarn itself has a velvety knit feel, is split resistant and frogs beautifully. Does not feel sticky or staticky on wood needles. Stitch definition is great. The cake sizes are unbeatable. Also- I am SO GLAD that this new yarn is a DK weight. I'm getting tired of new yarn lines being all bulky and super bulky, I'm glad to see finer yarns coming back for shawls and light weight items. Keep the Mandala coming and I will keep buying it!

    • Gorgeous colors

      I found this yarn and bought four cakes, two different and two same. I had a birthday gift to make for a 12 year old girl and wasn't happy with the yarn I originally purchased for the project, so I dug out my mandala stash and chose Spirit. I crocheted a circle vest out of it and the color changes were perfect. They changed with ease and didn't seem as abrupt. The vest is just gorgeous! I will be purchasing more just as soon as my local store has them in stock again.

    • Absolutely the Best of "Cakes"

      I bought 2 of the "Chimera" color, after very much debating and will be buying more colors very soon. There are by far the most lovely of the cakes available from different companies. They color patterns make sense so the changes don't seem so abrupt and the colors, even the brights, are still soft and gentle. No harshness in color or texture here. I haven't actually used it yet, still staring and touching and thinking about what to make, but I can say that it IS soft, machine washable, AND BONUS! 590 yards to a cake,(double Premier's Sweet Rolls.) Thank you, Lion Brand, for doing this right!
