I am temporarily in the UK. I wish your yarns were sold here. I brought over 5 shawls that I had knit - Earth, Southwest, Luxury, Stillness and Adobe. Since I am not able to get to London before Christmas, I sent them. The UK friends couldn't believe the beautiful colours and the softness of the yarn. Now I have to have my cousin buy and send me more yarn while I am here. Over the years I have made more than 200 of these shawls - the last 50 or so with your yarns. I don't know what is liked better - the shawls or the yarns I use to produce them. Have you thought of selling your yarn in the UK?

I bought the Seaside ombre yarn and struggled to find a pattern that produced a nice effect, as opposed to messy blotches.
Finally settled on one, started a scarf and was extremely pleased for the first 4 inches at how the colors arranged themselves.
Suddenly the placement of the colors changed in the skein and the look changed completely. I am now at the end of the skein and at no time, were the color placements at the start repeated in same way.
It would be so much nicer if they had repeated the color changes in an even and predictable manner, or else made them much shorter so big wads of the same color didn't end up next to each other.
I'm not sure how to rate this yarn. Feel and workability are both very nice. So the quality of the yarn itself is excellent, but their way of changing their colors gives a poor performance.

I had never used this yarn before until one day i recieved a box full of yarn to use for Charity work for the Homeless Shelter and Food Pantry in my area, and who would have guessed it....Loops & Threads Impeccable yarn in the color Fresh Lilac.
I crocheted 2 baby blankets, a baby hat and a pair of fingerless mitts, instantly i fell in love with this yarn, it is now my favorite Acrylic Yarn. I have some scraps left that will be used for more Charity work.

I really like how this yarn feels while I'm crocheting and as a finished product - soft to the touch. I particularly like the dark ombre colors at my local store like the red / gold / purple in the ginseng ombre. The yarn doesn't split while working with it. I've used this yarn with a D hook and a J hook with very good results. Curious how it looks after washing. Saw others comment on knots, and I had one splicing knot in my one skein, but I thought that was common amoung all yarns. Will continue to use impeccable. For the price, it's a very good value with great colors!

I absolutely love this yarn and the colors it comes in. I have run into a few knots which was disappointing but it's a hurdle I'm willing to jump for the beautiful colors this yarn comes in. Overall, I am very happy with it and it feels great.
Although I am very sad because my favorite colors (Folklore and Black Raspberry) seem to have been discontinued. Please bring them back!
Pros: Easy to usePerformed well

Great yarn, great value. Made a queen sized crocheted afghan for my guy...weighs a ton but washes beautifully! Only two problems with the yarn--the "big" skeins always seem to have a humongous knot in the center, no matter how careful you start them; and they've already discontinued a color I've been using on another afghan....may run out and have to leave it as a throw.
Pros: QualityGood valueEasy to usePerformed well
Cons: massive knotting in the center of the big skeins

I just bought my first batch of Loops & Threads Ombre yarn (Earth color) and crocheted a beautiful shrug for a friend. The yarn was wonderful to work with -- nice draping body, soft (not ultra soft but soft enough for a shrug and would work well with an afghan), and the colors of "Earth" are beautiful. Also, the friend I made this for wanted fall colors and this is one of the few multi color yarns that looks really good on dark skin. I wish they made more in these darker fall-like tones! I highly recommend this yarn! Oh, and I consider it a good value because I bought this on sale at Michael's.

Maybe I just got UNlucky. I bought 4 ombre colors, three skeins of each (12 total) and every skein had one or more knots to splice ends together. VERY frustrating when you're making a striped project (scarves) and have to match the colors/striping pattern. I had to cut out a lot giving me a lot of waste and a lot of loose ends to weave in after knitting. One actually had a 6" piece knotted in and an untwisted section continuing to the skein! I love the colors and the feel of the yarn. I'd probably give it another try for those reasons but if this trend continues, this yarn won't be on my go-to list!
Pros: Good valueEasy to usePerformed wellbeautiful colors
Cons: knots!

I'm using the Neopolitan Ombre to make a very simple scarf for a Christmas gift. This yarn is very soft, and Michael's has great sales so the value is fabulous. However, as I'm finding with most ombre type yarns I'm not happy with the coloring. It's more splotchy than I'd like. I guess I mistakenly thought the colors would spread with more of a varying effect. I'm pretty sure my cousin will still love it, though!
Pros: QualityGood valueEasy to use
Cons: too splotchy

Very soft yarn that is a joy to work with! Finding coordinating colors is always easy as the associates pair them next to each other (the solids with the ombres). Thank you Loops and Threads and Michaels for an excellent product with so many rich color choices!

I really enjoyed working with this yarn. It is my favorite yarn now, and I have made 2 hats out of the yarn. They are beautiful and the only hats that don't itch or distract me because they are so soft that I sometimes even forget I'm wearing a hat! Love this yarn, planning to make an afghan sometime because the yarn is the softest and nicest yarn I have ever used!

I was really impressed with this product. There are a great many "budget" yarn options out there. Some are good, few are great. This is the latter. The texture is wonderful, full, and really soft. The consistency of the thread is excellent as well, it never thins out or get odd bumps along the way which was a pleasant surprise. I think in the 10-ish skeins I've used I've only come across one or two knots in the yarn. The yardage is excellent, you get a lot for your money. The colorway selection is great, many of the ombres have coordinating solids, making for great match-ups. It' s really nice not to have to pick through all the different yarns to find matching colors, weight, and textures. This is by and far my favorite "budget" yarn - it's a real gem!

I used this yarn on the Knifty Knitter set of looms to make my first yarn project--a hat and scarf set. The finished product came out very nice. I used an ombre yarn and was very impressed with the striped pattern that it created. The pattern and changes in color were very consistent and created beautiful wide stripes. The yarn was also very soft.

Why have all but "ombre" colors been discontinued in this line? I am working on a large project, and am shocked to find that the "lilac" is not available. I'm stuck with three-quarters of a church banner, and have no idea how to finish it. Are there other yarns available that at least match these shades and this weight?

I love working with this yarn, but I'm really bugged that the ombres and the solid colors don't seem to match exactly. Maybe the new ombres recently added will? I made a small blanket with sage butter ombre, but for the solid border I used Super Saver which is wretched to work with!
