This yarn is soft and plush, and comes in a braid! Lol. Caron x Pantone yarn is an elegant substitute for size 5 bulky weight yarn. Although there isn’t a lot of yarn per braid, the color palettes make up for the lack of yardage. It comes in 32 ‘colors’, 7 of which are solid palettes.
Each braid (5 links) weighs 3.5 oz (100 g) and is 127 yards (116 m) in length. The yarn is comprised of 60% acrylic, 20% nylon – for a little stretch – and 20% merino wool – for a luxurious feel. It is machine washable and dry-able, but should not be bleached or ironed.
I love this yarn because it is so soft. It is perfect for small projects – like my Itty Bitty Bows; and the color palettes are just awesome. The team that worked on these color choices deserves an award. The yarn does not pill, which makes it that much better to work with. Some downsides to this yarn are the fact that it is such a small amount of yarn – larger projects will require a lot of braids and will result in a lot of ends to weave in; and that the yarn strands tend to unravel while I work. Both of these reasons make using the yarn a bit of a task, but it won’t stop me from using this lovely yarn anytime soon.
Hope you guys enjoyed my second yarn review. Enjoy your weekend and be kind to strangers.
