    • A Glorious Yarn

      Please reconsider. The name was truly correct. AMAZING !!! Tend not to use acrylic [ bit of a natural fiber addict - snob ??] but this yarn is marvelous. Have customers asking for scarves - even collecting the range of colors.

    • OH Please Don't

      Please, don't stop making this yarn! It's every thing you want. Long color runs, easy care, wool for warmth, great selection of colors. Why do you think it needs to go away???

    • So Sad

      I'm very upset that Lion Brand is phasing out Amazing yarn. I've been using it for years to make scarves for sale. It's a perfect weight for a lighter scarf and the color gradations are lovely.

    • Amazing yarn

      I knitted sweaters using wool-ease solids and amazing yarns instead of Fair Isle. I received many compliments. It is a shame it is so hard to find.

    • Amazing

      After a couple of projects (and much frustration), I finally grew to really like working with Amazing! The early issues involved the 'tearing out' of mistakes, but I finally found an 'easier' way and have been working with it since shortly after its introduction. I now have a bit of a stash since, with every sale, I fear it's on its 'disappearance trail'! The use of number description of weight is somewhat annoying to me also--redundant, anyway, as explanatory words are often included as a necessity.

    • I love this yarn

      Love the way it knits up with non-repeating random stripes, and the colorways are beautiful. It also goes much farther than I expected. It's only 50 grams, but it has almost 150 yards per ball, and it is lightweight, brushed yarn so it may look like DK as someone mentioned, but it knits up at 3-4.5 stitches per inch, depending on needle size. I made a gorgeous waist-length elbow-length sleeved jacket in Acadia with just 2 balls (using size 9 needles). It is light as a feather, and very warm. I liked that so much, I bought 8 skeins of Wildflower to make a full length raglan pullover (using size 8), and it looks like I am going to have 2 left over to make something else. I'm not a small person-- the jacket measures 44 at the bust and the sweater measures 42. This yarn truly earns the name Amazing! BTW, I had no trouble raveling it down a column to pick up a dropped stitch at all, and the same with the sample I knit for gauge, but I was knitting, not crocheting.

    • Not the usual varigated

      Love how the colors transition in this yarn.. very subtle creating a rich patterning. Made a simple garter stitch scarf and it came out soft and beautiful. Going to try some other colors in this!

    • wight of yarn

      4 medium is worsted but by the yardage and weight of each ball I would say it's more like DK.

    • worsted weight

      I love the colors, it's warm and only slighly itchy, and it crochets pretty quickly. But it gets 3stars because it can't really be unravelled. Since I tend to start a project more than once until I get the guage right, that is a problem. About the weighting system: a weight of 4 generally means a worsted weight yarn, and would be the equivalent of a traditional 4-stranded yarn. 1 means sock yarn, lace yarn, size 3 crochet thread, that sort of thing. 2 means baby weight (2-stranded yarn), 3 means sport weight (3-stranded yarn).
