TIP: if you think the yarn is too rough or scratchy after you have finished your project, soak it in cold water, fabric softener and cheap hair conditioner (any brand will do) and it will be a bit softer after rinsing it! i did this with my bedspread.
Some things to keep in mind:
Yarn that is made at different times, will be slightly different colors. That's just the nature of yarn. To avoid having a visible place where you joined a new skein, you can alternate skeins when you join a new one - do a few rows with the first skein, then a few rows with the second, for awhile.
All monitors are different, so there's no way to show you a 100% accurate picture of the colors of yarn. Amazon's colors are quite accurate on my screen, though.
This is a worsted weight yarn, but it's on the thicker side of worsted weight, more like aran weight. This is what makes it great for amigurumi, in my opinion, since those need to be dense. But if you're making something that needs to be a specific size, check your gauge first. Some colors of RHSS are thinner than others, so again, check your gauge.
If it's splitting a lot, you may be pulling the yarn in the wrong direction. RHSS is wound to be pulled from the center. On the label, it has an "A" and a "B" with arrows. On the side labeled "A", make sure the outside strand of the yarn is out of the skein. Sometimes it's worked its way out before the yarn gets to you, but you may have to pull it out. On the side labeled "B", you need to find the other end of the yarn that's in the center of the skein. Pull that out, and knit/crochet from that side. If you did that and it's still splitting a lot, it's possible the label came off somewhere along the way and was put back on upside-down - try putting the center strand back in the middle, and pulling it out through the other end.
The multi colored skeins are smaller (in amount of yarn) than the solid colored skeins.
RHSS is a bit course/stiff at first, but it softens up nicely after a wash.
If you keep these things in mind, you'll have a great experience with Red Heart Super Saver!
Now for the cons: I really have only one complaint, however that complaint can be a deal breaker for me if I'm considering repurchasing. After I worked hard on a scarf and excitedly finished it and put it around my neck... I realized it was scratchy!! So although the piece looks like I wanted it to, the fact that it's scratchy means that I won't be able to wear it or give it as a gift! Since this is the whole reason why I do crafts I'm going to have to say I will not purchase this brand again unless the piece I'm making isn't for an item of clothing that touched the neck or face (like a scarf). It takes me a lot of time and energy to knit and crotchet so I'll make sure next time BEFORE I START THE PROJECT that I take the ball of yarn and hold it up to my face and see if it's scratchy first. I actually should have done that anyway so it's my fault for not making sure. So if your looking to craft (non scarf crafts) this is the yarn for you! I will find different yarn for my scarves- unfortunately it will have to be a more expensive ball of yarn I'm sure, which is why I tried this one first, to save money. But not every corner is worth cutting, especially if you put a lot of work in, because it's a waste of time in the end if you can't even use the product you made.
