Large and Soft, With Good Structural Integrity

This yarn takes mega-sized amigurumi to a new level! My spouse wanted a giant alien, and that’s what they got. It’s soft to the touch, and works up quickly. Pilling and unraveling were very minimal.

My only complaints:

1) I wish there were significantly more color options.

2) it’s a bit difficult to seam together due to the size. I modified a large darning/seaming needle by spreading the eye wider; however, most needles are so short that they’re practically useless. I resorted to using a crochet hook for most of the seaming. If I could find/make the right tool for the job, I’m guessing it would be much easier, and result in a cleaner seam.

Don’t judge the seaming work, as it was makeshift at best, but overall, I will be using this yarn for another giant amigurumi soon enough (already ordered 12 more skeins for alien 2).

Chunky, Vibrant, and Luxe

This yarn is quite thick & knits up beautifully with fat needles. The colors are vibrant, and it has a great feel when I working with it. It’s going to make a gorgeous (if a tad bit heavy) baby blanket.

Love this yarn!

Fun to work with, great quality. Love this blanket for watching movies when I’m a bit chilly. Also works nicely as a weighted throw. Highly recommend!

Good but not great

Love this product but this batch had more tied and knots than I am used to. Basically happy but not ecstatic.

Vel-luxe yarn - just love it!

This yarn is so soft and easy to use. I made the Lulu bucket bag by Two of Wands and gave it to my moms Physical Therapist as a gift. She loved it!
