I like this yarn - soft and thick, easy to work with. Washes fine but gets a "worn" look pretty fast. My daughter wore hats made with this almost every day and they would start to get "fuzzy" but they did not pill. When buying this brand, as with many yarn brands, the veriagated yarn has less ounces than the plain color. I bought many different colors - liked them all - I only used them to crochet hats, so not sure about other items.
I whipped up a small bathroom rug with a little over one skein of this yarn using the recommended 9mm (U.S. M/13) crochet hook. Since it was nice and thick I managed to finish it in one sitting! It was also very soft and nice to work with.
To help you get an idea of how much yarn you might need for a cute little bathroom rug, I've provided a photo. It's about 22 inches in length.
I really like how this yarn is so soft you can wear whatever project you're doing right away. Some yarns I've found you have to wash before hand in order to be wearable (like hats or scarves) because they're scratchy but this yarn is very soft. The color is lighter in person so be careful of that. My boyfriend swears there is some blue in it but I don't see it and I worry he's having some sight problems, but it's his opinion and I think it's important enough for me to warn others about it. But if you don't care about the color, this chunky yarn is really awesome. I made a hat out of it, just a regular knit and it's very warm. Love this yarn!
