Hello everyone! Today I have a review on Hobby Lobby’s yarn brand, Yarn Bee. I made a scarf when testing this yarn, and if you would like to see the finished project you can view my Windowpane Scarf Pattern Review. When I do my reviews of yarn I test three different things, Color consistency, Pilling, and Yarn spilting frequency.
1.) Color consistency
The color consistency is great for this yarn! I did try a different Yarn bee yarn about a month ago that started off plain grey and ended plain grey with stripes. (Which it wasn’t supposed to do that.)
As you can see from this photo below, that it has a light amount of pilling. Its about the average amount for acrylic yarn. But when you are wearing the item, you are not looking at the scarf that close anyway!
3.) Yarn spilting frequency
One of the very large downsides of this yarn is that it splitted so often! Every 4-5 stitches I made were splitted. (This slowed me down a lot on my project.)
When I was about halfway through my scarf there was a mysterious knot in the yarn tying to ends together. If this is normal with some yarns, let me know in the comments!
For only $3.99 at Hobby Lobby (with 40% off coupon only $2.40) It is worth the price. I would definitely work with this yarn. My only concern is the constant splitting, but if you are doing a project with large stitches this shouldn’t be a problem for you!
