Silky soft but splits like crazy

I just finished a summer version of a sweater I’d previously made with superwash merino. The peach color and silky texture were lovely, but the splitting of the yarn at almost every step was the most annoying aspect of any yarn I’ve ever used. The 4-ply of cotton and bamboo was not tightly twisted; the separate strands were visible almost always, and when making textural crochet stitches such as puff stitches it was maddening to work with. I’m a huge fan of Lion Brand yarns, but if you continue to manufacture this one, tighten up the twist!

I loved working with this yarn. Beautiful soft, silky feel. Colour is pretty and has a nice sheen to it. Drape of the garment is very flattering. The fibres separate occasionally, but with a bit of care, I didn’t find it to be much of a problem.

I REALLY WANT TO LOVE IT

I love the colors, the softness and the drape but crocheting with it is not easy. After using four balls, I'm of the opinion that the ball is wound too tight. The closer you get to the center, the flatter the yarn becomes, making it split.

The dealbreaker, however, is that there was a knot in 4 out of 4 balls from the same lot and one of the balls had two knots. For a 232 yd. ball, this is unacceptable. In each case, I had to rip out 100-200 stitches to the selvedge because a join in the center of a garment is unacceptable.

I had already purchased more for a knitted top. If I have the same problems, I won't be buying any more.

I really want to love this yarn. Sad.

Very Satisfied

I have been crocheting for almost 70(!) years, so I have tried all different types of yarn. I like the softness and drape of Coboo and that it is all natural fiber. I have not had an issue with splitting; I work fairly loosely. I can see how it could be a problem for those folks who work with a Death Grip!

Beautiful yarn

I have read the reviews about how this yarn is difficult to work with because the fibers split. I chose to buy it anyway, and I am very glad I did! I knit a calf-length ‘duster’ cardigan using small needles, no problem with fibers splitting. I am now working on a crochet baby blanket using size H hook, ‘blanket’ stitch. It is so amazingly soft and beautiful!
One of many things I have learned as a knitter/crocheter is how important it is to pay attention to my work. I for one cannot watch a movie and work effectively on my project at the same time - I screw up counts, split fibers, etc. etc.!!! Good news is there are SO many audiobooks, podcasts etc. available now - so we can be highly entertained while visually concentrating on our projects, so ‘splitting’ and that sort of thing isn’t a problem!!
Long story short, I highly recommend this soft, dreamy yarn. Good luck everyone!!
