Wow amazing yarn

I am an experienced crocheter, I test patterns for designers and that helps broaden my horizons and skills. But I will admit this yarn was a little tricky, at first. I had to find the learning curve. I watched a few videos and then went back at it and was able to use it without slippage. Now I am making my daughter a hoodie and then I want to make bears for my grandchildren. I have heard it makes fantastic bears! I can hardly wait!!

Feels so nice

I haven’t started using this yarn yet but excited to try it out on a pattern from whistle and wool. A crocheted short sleeve longer vest. It a nice soft grey color. Has a feel like chenille but not the thickness of.

Knots in yarn

I’m so disappointed.
I’m knitting the scarf for a gift.
In the first 48” I’ve knit, I’ve had 8 knots in yarn.

The velvet part also separates constantly.

Simply disappointed in this product.

Hello Margaret - our apologies for the excessive knots in your yarn! Please email our quality control team at support@lionbrand.com, and include your dye lot number from the ball band if you still have it.

It's not great

I love the colors of the yarn, they are so rich and beautiful, which is why I rated at a 3 and not a 2 star. However the quality is definitely lacking on this yarn which is super disappointing because I love lion brand yarns. I have had to cut and rejoin multiple times already in my project and I'm not very far in, there have been long section where it is bare, there is no velvet just the string, and it frays so easily, I can pull off the velvet so easily which makes me feel like this won't hold up well. I'm super sad about this because I was so excited to try this yarn, but I don't think I will be ordering it again. I have worked with other brand velvets and I have not run into this issue with the other ones at all, which makes this even more disappointing.
