The yarn is very thick and soft it works up quickly.

I have used the charcoal (for an adult and child newsboy cap) and the cranberry (for the ear warmers) and they are both great.

I'll buy it again, especially if they run a great sale - I'll stock up on it for sure!

Color Name: Navy
I love this yarn for scarves and hats for my son. It's a bit too thick for crocheting in my opinion. Unless you work an open stitch it would be very heavy, but in knit, it makes a thick warm scarf that's washable. Garter stitch using size 13 needles makes a dense, heavy fabric. The wool makes it warm enough for our cold Alaskan winters, and since it's a blend, it can be washed easily.
It works up super fast.
The yarn is smooth and even, the navy color is very dark. It doesn't look as shiny in real life as it looks in the photo.

Edit: 10-7-12 - Last night I used the wheat which is an off-white color with black and dark brown filaments and a size Q hook (Boye Crochet Dude Plastic Crochet Hook Set to make a kitty hat in under two hours. Just that fast, a few rounds, some ear flaps, great big pompoms and ears. It was my first time working with a hook that large and the chunky, huge stitches and speed will make it my new go-to for really fast, fun hats. So I take back what I said about crocheting. Using the recommended hook size, it it is too dense, but using the size Q worked great.

Color Name: Oatmeal Verified Purchase
I purchased this yarn to make a scarf (and learn how to knit). It's very forgiving and my mistakes aren't obvious. Everyone loves the color, and it looks very nice. The yarn is also soft. I will be purchasing more Wool-Ease Thick & Quick for different projects. The color is exactly like the picture. I was making a wide adult scarf, for that you definitely need two rolls.

Another plus is that this yarn is machine washable, so the scarf won't be a hassle to clean.

Color Name: Charcoal Verified Purchase
I fortuitously stumbled across this yarn via a pattern, which recommended it. Lucky, me! The pattern required two skeins, so I ordered those on December 11th, received them on the 13th, and worked up the cowl, the same day! Holy Smokes! I whipped it out in a couple of hours, with an M sized hook...the time it took to watch a film. It wasn't fiddly. I particularly love how soft it is; snugly-warm. After that first purchase, I was inspired to go into frenzied make-everyone-a-cowl-for-Christmas overdrive and ordered 12 additional skeins! I have Amazon Prime (free shipping on Prime eligible colors), so each cowl cost under $20. I'm happy to say that I completed all the cowls with ample time to spare, including shipping, from the east to the west coast! Yippee! :-) (If you sent as many, "late-again" packages as I have, you'd understand my glee.) I thought this a nice gift for that price.

Because I had such a good experience making the cowls, I have since gone on to make a hat, two hooded cowls, and a pair of slippers calling for Wool-Ease Thick and Quick and still managed to get everything else done that one does in a day. Quick.

Fortunately, out of the 20 skeins I have worked with so far, I have not had the knotting problem another reviewer expressed. I'm so glad about that. After reading that review, I chanced it, to order this yarn anyway. I'm going to use this yarn for future projects. If I run into any problems, I'll try and give an update.

I'm leery of ordering items such as this, with color being so hard to determine accurately via my computer screen, but was happy with the ones I ordered: charcoal, black, blossom, fisherman, pine, raspberry, and granite.

Color Name: Lemongrass Verified Purchase
Like the title says, this yarn works up beautifully and very quickly! I made a blanket and keep it at my desk at work for when it gets chilly. I love the color and how it looks, but I am unhappy with the durability of the yarn. It is to be expected with a yarn that is so thick and so few plies though.

Color Name: Constellation
its so thick it ought to be sold in a bit bigger skeins. i can normally get a slightly slouchy hat with ear covers and pom poms out of the next size down of this brand but this one i got about half way through and its a bit expensive to buy the two skeins im going to need to finish
goo for small projects and beginners, crochet is a bit too bulky even on 8mm hooks

This is a gorgeous purple, but if you're looking for a medium purple keep looking. This is a very dark purple.

Color Name: Cranberry Verified Purchase
Lion's Brand produces solid yarns. This is no exception. Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick Yarn is a great lower priced bulky yarn.

It is a great yarn for beginners and for fast projects. It knits up well. It's soft on your fingers, and it's easy to work with.

My only two complaints are the durability and the color choices. It seems to pill a bit. But it's a lower cost yarn so it's a small trade-off. There are a lack of colors. But the colors they do have are vibrant and retain their color well.
