A great chunky yarn

Knitting and crochet projects go quickly with this soft, chunky yarn. It feels so cozy and looks beautiful too.

Re-Spun thick and quick

Love the softness, range of colors and size. My only gripe odd that I’m barely into the first skein and I’ve found 4 knots. I don’t want them to show so I cut and create 2 tails that need to be woven in. Now I’m afraid the bulk will show in all those weaving in.

Hello Jackie - our apologies for the knots! Please email our quality control team at support@email.lionbrand.com so we can help with this issue.

I love this yarn! The color selection is absolutely gorgeous. The amount of yardage you get for the price is a fantastic value. The yarn reminds me of Hue & Me, except it's a little sturdier. It looks somewhat like a roving yarn when worked up, but is just as great for bags, baskets, and rugs as it is for wearables. That's the reason I have selected this yarn as the go-to for teaching new students how to crochet. Way to go, Lion Brand! I love this yarn.

Very soft, but splits a lot and lots of knots

I’ve used up one skein so far out of 5 that I bought, and it is definitely a lovely soft yarn that feels maybe a bit softer than wool-ease t&q. There is also quite a bit of yardage for the price, and I like the slight sheen. However, it’s a very “splity” yarn which has made it nearly impossible for me to frog more than a few stitches. My first skein also had 5 cuts/knots in it which is a bit frustrating (3 were in the last 20% of the skein). I also don’t love that it’s hand wash only because the ease of care is one of the big benefits of wool ease t&q and I was hoping this would be a more sustainable substitute, but for larger projects or donated projects, machine washability is key. I’ll use up my remaining skein, and may continue to purchase for small projects that won’t be washed too often, but probably won’t be using this for any large projects

Hello Ashleigh - our apologies for the excessive knots in your yarn! If you come across more than 3-4 knots in a single ball of Re-Spun Thick & Quick, please save the label (we'll need the dye lot number) and email our quality control team at support@email.lionbrand.com. We do recommend hand-washing items made from this yarn since the yarn has a looser ply (less twist) than Wool-Ease Thick & Quick, which makes it softer, but also a little more prone to fuzziness. Hand washing and laying flat to dry will keep your finished items looking their best!
