The yarn worked up beautifully, and was recommended specifically for the project I am working on. The only issue was that 5 out of the 10 skeins of white yarn had 1+ knots in it that I had to cut out. The frustration comes from the additional time needed to bury the extra ends, and the waste of yarn in a project where ordering additional yarn could put an unacceptable delay in finishing the project. I don’t know if this is a common issue with King Cole Comfort Chunky yarn, or if I just received a disproportionate number of problem skeins. For the price of the yarn, I expected better quality control.
Everything was excellent: yarn, cost, delivery. YES, I will buy again and recommend to friends. Good job, ducky!
This is a terrific yarn at a wonderful sale price. Knits up beautifully.
