I ordered this product because you advertised it as made in USA. I returned because it was actually made in China. It defeated the intention I have of buying USA made. I

I bought this yarn to knit winter socks and I am not disappointed. The yarn is soft and easy to knit, and a skein is big enough to knit two pair plus extra for wrist warmers. Lion Brand Yarn is always a great quality and I was happy to find it at a discount price on this site.

I used it to make a skirt for my grandaughter and a matching one for her doll. Both were adorable.

I appreciate the great price you have on this popular yarn. It's so convenient to get it on large cones instead of buying several small skeins. The denim blue reminds me of faded jeans. The yellow color is warm, but not as neon bright as the sunshine yellow offered by Sugar'n Cream.

Lily Sugar'n Cream yarn is the perfect yarn for knitting dishcloths and pot holders. And the Big Ball size is convenient and economical.

I have always loved Lion Brand yarns, and this is no exception. Haven't made anything with it yet, but it is on my "to do" list.

This yarn is pretty good for basic socks. Premium yarns are expensive so this Lion Brand yarn is a good alternative for inexpensive socks.

My mom asked me for good knitting yarn so that he can knit a few baby socks and other items. First thing I realized (and it is good that it was stated in the product description) is that the product is really light (3oz), so if you have something big to knit; get a few of them. The product is very soft and the color is kind of greenish. Actually, the color is better looking than its image.

I made my daughter and her American Girl doll matching scarves out of this lovely pink cotton yarn. It's soft and chunky. I love it and bought several colors but this is my fave!

You will hate your life if you buy this yarn. It is THE worst cotton yarn I have ever encountered. I mistakenly thought it would be better than sugar and cream, which is only fair, but this stuff is wretched. It is coarse, splits like crazy, hurts your hands, and has no body to it at all. This yarn is only suitable for dishcloths and potholders, and then only in times of desperation. Any other cotton is bound to be better, don't waste your money.

This is a pretty, chunky-weight yarn requried for a nice stadium blanket. Like many Lion Brand yarns, it is hard to find the correct end to start the project. It is easier to start from the inside of a skein but I cannot find the end needed to start my project. Also, Lion Brand saw fit to tie two ends together within one skein. When crocheting, I weave in ends. However, two ends are tied together within a skein, making it look out of place.

the yarn made a beautiful sweater. It is very soft. If you are ordering it, you better double your order though because you go through it very fast. I had to order more because I ran out after ordering 6 skeins for a sweater. Needed 12!

I was very pleased with the quality and weight of this yarn. Very easy to work with and the natural color with it's highlights are a treat. Would make a wonderful sweater, scarf, mittens, leg warmers, socks- I don't know which yet! You can't beat the price for this quality. It is a soft wool but such as wool is, it is not as soft as cashmere, but not as scratchy as some, Enjoy.

This yarn is great stuff. I purchased a few skeins for a blanket and it knits up wonderfully. Overstock has it at a great price too!

Lion Fisherman's wool is very scratchy but a decent workhorse yarn. You won't want to wear it anywhere against sensitive skin. Looks pretty nice and the price is right.

I love this yarn and have completed several projects using it all of which have been gifts. It is a very soft, organic cotton which is perfect for baby throws and blankets. I would have given the yarn 5 stars except for the fact that occasionally in the middle of a skein the yarn will be knotted or irregular. Does not happen often but if in the middle of a big blanket it is inconvenient to remove the stitches and start over. I try to inspect the yarn before beginning a row to prevent this from happening but it is a pain.
Soft and warm, chenille is the perfect fabric for luxurious throws. Chenille yarn is made from short pieces of fiber twisted around a yarn core.

Owners of chenille throws can clean them gently in a washing machine or carefully by hand. Check out the following steps to help you learn how to clean a chenille throw.

The thread count of bed sheets refers to the number of threads per square inch of fabric. For example, if a square inch of fabric in a 300-thread count sheet with a standard weave were examined closely, 150 vertical threads and 150 horizontal threads would be counted, for a sum total of 300. The higher the thread count, the softer and smoother the sheets will be. Thread count is an important consideration to take when choosing a new set of sheets, but it should not be used as a sole indicator of quality. Equally important in choosing a bed sheet is the type and quality of the materials used as well as the fabric's weave.
