I really like this yarn. It's soft and washes/dries well in the machine. The colors are fun and it's not too splitty - surprising, considering the fluffy texture. I've made a bag, a hat and a sweater from this yarn, and they are all still working out great! The hat was made for a small child and it's his favorite. I've crocheted, knitted and loomed with this yarn and it held up well through all the crafts.
Pros: QualityGood valueEasy to usePerformed wellwashed well in the machine

I agree with the other comments, the yarn goes rather quickly. I made a wrap/shawl, it worked up in 5 skeins, using an N hook I got about 14 rows out of one skein @ 39 chains wide (pics below). It's a tad expensive, however, the feel is luxurious and when I was working on the project I got so many compliments on the yarn.
I would definitely recommend this yarn for a smaller project.
Pros: Easy to use
Cons: Expensive

Some chemicals bother me and because of this I let my nose do a lot of my shopping. Country Loom has a bit of a smell while knitting but it doesn't stuff me up. After the first wash my sweaters are odorless. For someone who can not wear a lot of store bought sweaters this is a big plus. It does split a bit when knitting but not a lot, overall it is really easy to work with. I love the how fast it knits up. Super warm for sweaters or blankets. Every time this yarn goes on sale I stock up. I LOVE that it is made in Canada.
My only complaint - I would love to see some solid colours.
Pros: Easy to usePerformed wellmade in canadalow odour
Cons: lack of solid colours

I found none of the problems tha others did... perhaps because i'm a seasoned knitter and crocheter,, but this yarn did exactly what i wanted it to....i made a "cocoon" for a baby and it was soft, worked up quick and not too dense..I think for crochet it requires a really big hook,but if bulky and quick is what your looking for this is the yarn for a good price...

This yarn is very soft, and comes in great colors. My granddaughters both selected this yarn for blankets I am making each of them, after going through all of the choices in the yarn section of the store VERY carefully! (lol) ;)
It was a bit difficult to get started with as the yarn is very "slubby", but once you get used to it - it knits up quickly. The recommended needle gauge is13, but I used 11 for single yarn strand and it worked out well for the blankets. Double yarn wouldn't work with less than 13 though!
Pros: Good valuePerformed well
Cons: takes a bit of getting used to but after that ok

I really liked the quality of this yarn. It was easy to work with and made a thick warm scarf for my first knitting project. The only problem I have with it is you dont get very much for the price. 104 yards is nothing when creating a project.

Was not pleased with the yarn at ALL. Right from the get go.
As I started the project . the skein of yarn was a tangled mess.
as I was knitting big clumps of the yarn would pull from the center not allowing you to work any futher. I therefore began once again from the out side and that was even a bigger mess and challenge. I was then forced to rewind the entire tangled ball before I was able to continue. By the time I was able to make much progress the yarn was already starting to fuzz up. Not a good sign as I have worked with another BRAND of the same type and just after a few wears of the scarf or sweater is a real mess as it fuzzs . I thought that I would give your yarn a try for the scarf I'm making for a friend with Country Loom in Falling Leaves. Your color combinations are beautiful and wish the yarn was a better quality other than being soft , but will be a rea fuzzl mess after a few washes and wears , which is a real shame after so much time is spent creating your project .
.
Cons: Poor performingDifficult to use

The biggest flaw with this yarn is that it tends to want to separate. Knitting with it can be challenging as the needles often slip between the strands of the yarn. Otherwise, it is very solid yarn. It should be fine for knitters with some experience who tend to work loosely.

This yarn is excellent because unlike other yarns the quality and thickness of the yarn stay consistent throughout the entire skein. Country loom is ultra soft and very forgiving if you nee to rip out a row while knitting. It does not separate and works well with both large and small gauge needles.

I've crocheted several hats with this yarn and it's fabulous. Soft, but firm, if that's possible. It holds it's shape, but is soft to the touch. Colors are gorgeous. Nice and thick, so it works up fast. I really can't say enough about it. And every time I've been to Michaels it's been on sale. At the sale price (forget what that price is) the value is fantastic.

I have been thrilled with the country loom yarn from the first time I picked up a few skeins. I usually use a coupon or sale to stock up.
I have been crocheting with it this season, and love the results, as do the recipients of the scarves, hats, boot cuffs, infinity scarves....well you get the drift.
I would like to see more solid colors, even if it had a fleck of another color like the red does.
I look forward to creating an afghan as soon as I complete the requests.

I have used this yarn to make 2 afghans from the same pattern. I love it! It's easy to work with. It makes a cuddly and warm afghan that just makes you want to snuggle into it. I would definitely use it again.,
My biggest complaint is: we need more colors!!!
There are some awful pinkish-red colors, lavendar and blues, but where are the basic greens & tans?

I must say I love this yarn!!!! I've used this yarn to make a huge warm blanket and scarfs for friends. Every time someone touches and wraps themselves up into the blanket they proclaim how warm and soft it is and how much they want one too. Scarfs are so warm and soft that friends love it for the cold weather.
But the one thing I figured out using this yarn is that when making a scarf using a mix of single and double crochet stitches is best otherwise the single makes the scarf overly bulky. But single is best for a blanket. ^_^

I have crocheted & loomed with this yarn and it performs equally well in both venues. Throughout the year I have created scarves & hats, as well as giving it a "guest appearance" in an afghan for a friend. Washes & dries very well, no apparent shrinkage or color change. Highly recommended in the bulky, acrylic yarn catagory.
