I love this yarn not so much
When this yarn first came out, I really did love everything about it, the way it felt, the colors. In the beginning, the cost was 1.49 a skein. Unfortunately there were a lot of issues in the beginning with colors in stock. I purchased a great deal of yarn as I do a lot of charity work. Five years have passed now, a lot of the blankets and scarves I have made have not held up. The elasticity of the yarn really goes fast. The color fades fast in the sun and wash to dull colors. Even head scarves do not hold their shape past 3 years. My first blanket I made with this yarn 5 years ago has already become so out of shape I am ashamed to show it. I used a size F needle and am a tight crochet, and have been for 30 years. I still have blankets made with Red Heart yarn from that long ago as well, although their color has faded, the shape still holds true! The last straw came when I pulled out my handmade halloween decorations, simple scarve, made 2 years ago, not supposed to iron or starch yarn, but it looks like that would be the only thing to bring life back into this yarn...no elasticity again. Today, this yarn is now 3.99...i won't purchase it anymore for .99, I do not like this yarn.
