I wanted to talk about this yarn since I made two hats with it. Basics: It’s Lion Brand’s Homespun Yarn, Corinthian (color), Size 5 Yarn Category/Bulky, 6oz, 185yd, 98% acrylic 2% polyester, Gauge (Knit): US10, 14sts x 2or = 4″ square, and Gauge (Crochet): Size K, 10sc x 10r = 4″ square.

When my friend first gave me this yarn, all I could think is, “This is SUCH an ugly color, what the heck am I gonna do with this?” I personally don’t like the color combinations. It looks like a mess of colors that shouldn’t be together. When you knit or crochet something, it looks alright, but definitely wouldn’t make things to wear with this yarn.

When I started using the yarn to start a project, I noticed that they yarn frayed SO easily. One thing that I really didn’t like about this yarn is that, the yarn is roving yarn held together by a black thread and that’s it. It made going through stitches very difficult. It is very sensitive. It ripped or unraveled on my twice during a project. The yarn however is very soft and warm. It’s bulky weight, but the string is pretty thin. The yarn works up very nicely making the hat projects a 2-3 hour affair.

Overall, I personally wouldn’t recommend the yarn, but I guess it will come down to personal taste.
