I am a bit disappointed in the "baby" version of this yarn, as it is not nearly as soft as one would expect. There is a plastic feel to it which isn't as pleasant as I would like for a yarn for baby items.
That said, the blanket did come out lovely. And Lion Brand yarn is usually skeined well without tangles or tied off cuts, making it convenient for large products like blankets.
I ordered these on Amazon because I do not have ready access to yarn stores in my neighborhood. I paid for convenience, and it is a high price as the cost of the yarn on here is quite a bit higher than the cost at a craft store.
If you need convenience and if a super-soft yarn is not a high priority, I would recommend this.
Overall, I do NOT like working with this yarn. It splits too easily and I've had to redo stitches multiple times on a row because I've managed to only snag one or two of the threads, not the whole twist. I do knit and crochet tightly, so that does not help. I do like the way the stitches look on the finished product. There is good definition and a slight sheen. It also has more spring to the fiber, which means less hand fatigue, which was an unexpected surprise, as other cheaper yarns have killed my hands.
I bought this for a very specific Lion Brand project I was crocheting for a friend, or I would probably have not purchased it at all. Finally, one would expect "Cheery Cherry" to be a true red, but in some lights it has a pink hue. This almost had me frogging the whole danged thing, but opinions were mixed, so I plugged on.
I had been ordering it from the Lion Brand website because the local craft and fabric stores carry a limited variety and quantity. I had no idea Amazon carried it. Many of the colors are much cheaper on Amazon and have Prime shipping. Some are twice as much or are an add on item. Whether you get it here or elsewhere on line, be warned that the colors don't always match. Sometimes they are darker, like the Colonial Blue, sometimes it's brighter like the very vibrant aqua, and sometimes it's a different tone all together, like the Sapphire Blue which actually has a dark almost real undertone. It's a chance you take when buying from a photo anywhere on the internet. This green looks exactly like my monitor picture.
While it's easier to buy everything from the website, you can save some serious money buying on Amazon if you take your time to compare prices on the different colors. Some are actually more expensive on Amazon. However, there is a serious trade off. You don't get all the same lot number. That's not a big deal if your using multiple colors interchangeably on a project, but it is if you are making a solid colored item.
My experience even with the same lot numbers is that there are some quality control issues. The colors match fine but sometimes one skein is a tad bit shinier than the next, and the texture of the yarn can be different from one skein to the next, or even within the same skein! It's rare but it does happen. They will be the same ply but the yarn itself gets much thinner. Again, it depends on your project if this will be an issue.
All I can say is if you are buying it directly from Amazon and not one of the market place sellers and you notice this problem, you can return it. I think the savings is worth it for the projects I make such as multicolored afghans, blankets, slouchy hats, market bags, yarn bags, etc. it is just so soft!
