Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value and quality Good quality for the price, great metres for the money. Nice thick double knit (some yarns are thin dk) although thickness of dk does vary with the colours within this brand. Non- pilling, non- plastic feeling. Smooth. Some joins. Used to crochet a blanket with dark and light purple, teal and navy. 31 December 2015
