I'm making a baby blanket with Loops & Threads yarn. Wow, it's really soft. This may become my new favorite yarn. :c9 Anyone else try it yet?

It's kind of Michael's answer to Vanna's yarn. I love it!

I haven't bought any yet, but I petted it the last time I was in Michael's. I thought it felt great and had very nice colors! I'm looking forward to trying it. :D

I keep seeing this in Michaels and would like to try it. I've even seen it on sale a couple of times. The thing is, I don't need any more yarn, especially acrylic. I'm presently in search of an excuse to justify a purchase. :lol

Same price for a larger skein. 4 or 4 1/2 ounces for the regular stuff, 5 ounces for the baby stuff (which is more expensive).

Yes but I think there's more yardage in the Loops and Threads. Vanna's Choice solids= 171 yds. Loops and Threads Impeccable solids = 277 yds.

I just finish a sweater with Loops and Threads Impeccable yarns ( I used the sweater pattern which is designed by Loops and Threads), it is as stiff as the cardboard. Hopefully, after I wash it, it will soften up.

I'm just starting a ghan with this and so far I love the way it works up. When you wash this are there any special instructions? My big question is ...will it pill?

I got a skein of this in the Kit Swap and used it to make a purse with. It is soooo soft! I love it. How I wish I had a Michaels or HL near me to shop at...

I just washed it cold water and put in dryer, nothing really special.

About pill? I know I sound silly, but what does pill mean?

Pilling is the name for the little rolly pollies you get on sweaters. :D

I have found you get much less pilling if you wash things in those mesh bags the laundries use. Especially acrylic afghans that you can put in the wash.
