First impression when I opned the pacakge was,...it's a cute skein of yarn!!! It is my first time using catona yarn and it is not disappointing at all. I am making some crochet appliqués so Catona is just perfect. Its ply is not big and it is shiny. It is also quite soft in my hands. It was quite a waiting until I got the yarn but I understand that it is shipped from UK. I definitely will use Catona again.
Fantastic!!! Love the Scheepjes yarn, the fantastic service, the great prices, and all the extra bonuses/gifts!!!
I love this yarn. I am making amigurumi animals, this yarn is perfect. Only problem is that I didn't realize that I had ordered 25gm balls. I had ordered these before and they were 50 gm balls, I didn't notice the difference. I know to watch that now. And, not all of the colors are available all the time. I keep having to check back to see if the color I want is available. I love the quality, no splitting. It takes a long to arrive after ordering, but well worth the wait. Thanks for being there. I can't find the yarn locally in stores.
This is one of the few places where I can buy the yarn I need for a specific project I crochet. They are half the cost of the other few places that sell it, and I also earn points for every purchase and when I have enough points, I can cash them in for money off my next order!
Very nice yarn. Works up nicely.
