    Luck of the draw i guess?! I wasnt able to find and end piece to start on either side and gave up and just started roling from the outside anf i also had 3 joins in mine 😶 its not the end of the world and the yarn can be easily changed out to a new strand but still a little annoying .

    Have you done anything else with this yarn? When i found it the other day i thought it was going to be my new favorite but when i tried it last night im going to have a hard time finding my stitches. Will try a bigger hook but i yarn tight so could still be an issue. Lol

    Any project ideas would be awesome.

    Hi Aly,
    I suggest you give this yarn another try. I just bought two balls myself and haven’t found that issue so it might just be that ball in particular. I have started multiple projects with it. I really enjoy feeling it flow through my fingers.

    While the yarn looks and feels gorgeous, I am incredibly disappointed with the quality. In the first 25 yards of the yarn, I found 3 joins. Thankfully, I’m using it for amiguruni so I’m able to hide the joints inside. When I first purchase the yarn prior to working with it, I also intended to use it to make an afghan. Due to the frequency of joins, though, I won’t be doing that. What a shame as thrbyarn feels so beautiful. I just don’t want to be stopping my afghan ever 10-12 yards to work in loose ends.

    This yarn is amazing, soft as an angel’s kiss! However, I’m using it for an amigurumi penguin pattern by Irene Strange, and I have no trouble breaking it by hand.

    Directly below the paragraph descussing the Merino wool content of this yarn, there is a features list stating 100% polyester. Which is it?? Poor proofreading.

      Just looks like a little “oopsie” on the initial description of yarn content. (That description applies to the new Caron x Pantone yarn. The Bernat Velvet is indeed 100 % polyester. I purchased both yarns today 🙂 Both beautiful and so soft 🙂

    Love the look of this yarn. Cannot wait to touch it. Hoping Joann’s will have it in stock soon for the CAL. No luck so far trying to buy online or in the store.

    The colors are gorgeous. I have a question. In your description of the yarn, you wrote “This yarn is a mix of Merino Wool, Nylon and Acrylic.“ However below the paragraph, it is written that the yarn is 100% polyester??
    I am allergic to polyester and cannot crochet with any polyester. It would be a shame if I could not use this enchanting yarn to make beautiful afghans and blankets etc.
