A little thinner than I thought, but it doubles up nicely with Dk yarn.
I love this King Cole Riot DK Acrylic Yarn. So soft and a joy to work with. Beautiful color way.
Wonderful yarn. Knits up nicely. Not too costly and the varieties of colors and design are dreamy!
I love the look and feel of this yarn. The color is absolutely beautiful, the ombre is so nice. It's very fuzzy yarn. I bought 17 skeins and a few had some problem areas, however. There were a few lengths of yarn that were incredibly thick and underspun, one section was practically still roving. Every skein I've worked with so far has had very inconsistent thickness as well, which has lead to visibly inconsistent stitches in my project. Unless someone looks closely, I don't think it will be terribly noticeable. Lastly, this yarn is UNFORGIVING if you make a mistake in your pattern. I'm using it for Tunisian crochet, I don't know if that makes a difference, but frogging my work has been a nightmare. When ripping rows out of a project, this yarn snags constantly. I had to keep stopping to cut the snagged fuzzy bits so I could continue ripping the rows I messed up. Overall, I love the look that this yarn is giving to my project, and it's a very good price in my opinion. I just wish the quality of the yarn was more consistent.
Love working with this yarn.
