I absolutely love using this yarn when I make scarves, it is really soft and bulky which is something that you need in this nasty winter we have been having this year.

I'll start with the positives. The colors are beautiful and the yarn has a good feel to it. Now the negatives. These skeins are like second quality. I'm not even sure where to begin. I guess for starters, as another reviewer noted, the yarn comes out of the skein in a knot, what a headache! I'm not even sure what the ply is supposed to be b,ut you'll be working away and the yarn gets bare and half the ply is gone! Then you'll be working and there will be a knot where they spliced two ends together. In the middle of one skein I had a knot and on the other side of the knot was a different lot color and it was highly noticable! I had to take it out and return that skein to the store. Another reviewer also noted on the lack of a pattern. That is so true, there is no real pattern. You'll have rows and rows of one color, then 3 inches of another color. Even with the headaches mentioned above my afghan came out nice. The yarn has a nice bulky feel and made a warm afghan. I'm not sure I would use this yarn again though.
Cons: Difficult to useLow quality

I have been using this yarn for most of my projects lately since it knits beautifully and give a soft feel to your creation. Please make sure you get enough of the color you are working with because the only down fall I have had is that if you don't get enough you might have problems getting more.

On one of my skeins of yarn, there was 3 spots where the yarn had broke and was tied in a knot. For an expensive yarn, this is not acceptable.

Okay, so the price was right, but when I started working it up, it just really stinks. It pills, badly! It untwists. It almost looks like it starts "felting" if you wind up needing to rip-it. I really would never use it again.

I've made blankets, hats, and scarves with this yarn and it is the softest yarn I've ever used. So comfortable I can't keep my kids away from it. It's machine washable and holds up well. Very easy to work with. Haven't found any downfalls so far.

Worked up great, yarn was fluffy, but it had a ton of fuzz and when I washed it the fuzz balled up and the fuzz balls were so tight that they could not remove with a lint roller nor with a fabric shaver. And, when it was washed the yarn flattened and totally ruined the look of the sweater. TOTAL WAIST OF MONEY AND TIME

Charisma is very soft and "fluffy" but because of the loose weave of the yarn it sheds a great deal. Be prepared to have a lint roller available. And when made up, it does get "fuzzy" and you may have to take the fuzz balls off.
Pros: Easy to usesoft
Cons: sheds

Overall this is a good , cushy,soft yarn to work with. Projects move along quickly. As stated elsewhere there were quite a few splices in the yarn and if you are a perfectionist in your work this might not be for you. I'm a novice that just makes throws for family to cuddle up with.... I do wish they would add more colors to the palette.
Pros: Easy to use
Cons: to many splicesnot enough colors.

I love this yarn. The other bulky weight yarns I've tried (wool or wool blends) are too stiff for me. I love how cushy and soft this yarn is. I wish there were even more colors to choose from.

I have tried this product on 3 different occasions now. I was drawn in by beautiful color combinations and soft texture. However, there were a minimum of 3 splices in each of the 3 balls of yarn I bought for my last project alone. in addition, the splices were done so poorly, ie.not follow the pattern in the varigated yarns, which means lots of wasted yarn to pick the pattern back up in the right area to make your project flow and ratty, poorly tied knots. I had forgotten that this had come up before when using this yarn. This is the 3rd and LAST time I will purchase this yarn. VERY DISAPPOINTING!!
Pros: beautiful colors
Cons: Low qualitytoo many splices

If this didn't fuzz, it would be perfect. Unfortunately it fuzzes so much that the stitches are practically invisible. You can't see under the fuzz. I made a gift for someone with this yarn and I see he doesn't wear it. I would guess because it looks like it's 50 years old! I will have to ask him for it and make a new one with other yarn. Do not waste your time and money on this yarn!!!!

This yarn is really cheap and affordable, I've made about 4 scarves with Charisma. I love how it's super, super soft! It knits up really quickly which was really nice. Everything was swell until the yarn fuzzes up a lot once you wear the scarves. I haven't washed the scarves yet and I don't plan to especially since I KNOW they are going to get really fuzzy. It starts fuzzing after a couple months of wearing and it gets all over; it looks like a cat attacked you. This yarn would have been perfect if it didn't fuzz and that really turned me off.
Pros: Good valueEasy to use
Cons: Low qualityfuzzed a lot

I purchased Loops&Threads Charisma Yarn at Michael's . The color is very nice "Deep Woods" but the quality is very poor. On the label it says 5 Bulky its no thicker than a 4 Worsted and some areas its even thinner and had knots in the yarn. I would not purchase this yarn again.

I've recently taught myself how to knit and crochet and I love using this yarn! The little projects I've made are soft and cozy and look beautiful! However, as other people have said, there are some issues ... some skeins have been thicker or thinner than others, some have been over or under twisted, some have knots in them... but I haven't had this issue with every skein I've purchased. For the price I think it's an okay value but I usually only purchase yarn when it's on sale or if I have a coupon. Another issue I've had is my home store tends to sell out of this yarn fairly quickly, so you may want to call ahead to make sure they have what you need.

I've been working with this yarn for the past five months and i'm really in love with it. For one, its very soft and everyone whose touched the blankets ive made with it asks for one and falls in love with how comfy it is. And they have fantastic sales like they did last week when its on sale for 2 for 5. The only problem ive experienced is the stores constantly running of the colors i need and not being able to get them anywhere else. Its easy to work with, light on the wallet and so cozy soft! Its my go to yarn and i encourage you to buy it because you'll fall in love with it like i did.

Nearly every skein has the yarn knotted , not a continuous piece of yarn. Not only do you go back to the beginning of the row to make your piece look nice but if it is the ombre you loose a lot of yarn to match it up. I bought a lot of this bulky yarn when it went on sale to make Christmas presents. I am sorry now.
