I love the yarn easy to work with.
Colours are true to image, and so beautiful in person! Crochets beautifully, and very soft.
I am very new to crochet and haven’t had much experience with different types of yarn, but this yarn is nice to crochet with. I am managing my tension and stitch consistency well with it. It is not too stretchy, although it does untwist and flatten into its individual threads which make triple crochet stitches rather tricky. It snags easily when stitching fast, but it is so soft and really colorful and my blanket is really looking good!
I love this yard, the colors are wonderful and it crochets up so nicely.
I love this yarn and the selection of colors. I'm a beginner to crochet but I found the yarn easy to work with. I live in the US and couldn't find this exact Chunky Monkey yarn. My order arrived in about 3 weeks even with the pandemic!
