I made a great afghan using a cream and a dark red. I washed it in warm water and dried in the dryer. The red totally ran into the cream color. I made an item using the dark blue and a white. I will have to wash this in cold water I guess. This yarn is not color fast! Not happy. I do like the feel of the yarn however.
This is wonderful for a basic worsted weight yarn, though it is a little lighter than Plymouth Encore or Vanna's Choice. It is nice to work with and looks great when made up. Like the washable feature for children's items.
Although this line has some beautiful colors, the yarn itself is not that great. The yarn splits while knitting or doing crochet and snags really bad. It is too bad, for as I said, they have some beautiful colors.
Needed one skein of this yarn and JBW was only place I could find my color. AND I received it in only two days! Unheard of to the mountains of North Georgia. This yarn is great to work with using for Block Party Class at Stitches South, but now planning to use for afghan, it's so soft!
