Due to some technical difficulties, I am posting this 4 days after I said I would…but I promise the next review will be posted this Friday. Now let’s get into one of my current faves!!!
Color Made Easy is a gorgeous, multiplied yarn whose name says it all. It currently comes in 22 vibrant shades of rich, beautiful colors. It is a size 5 bulky yarn, 100% acrylic and is machine washable AND dry-able!! Each ‘ball’ weights 200 grams (7 oz) and is 247 yards (226 m) in length. This much yarn per ball means you can make a whole lot more for less!
Some pros for this yarn:
Vibrant colors; super soft; no pilling; and the amount of yarn you get is just…A LOT!! I can make 5 of my Bhava Earwarmers from one ball of Color Made Easy (2 large, 1 medium, 2 small and there’s enough leftover for a medium-sized bow).
Some cons that I’ve experienced:
Strands tend to untwist while I’m working…which causes snags and some stitches become too tight if not corrected; knots in the middle of my ball of yarn where it looks like one length of yarn was connected to another length of yarn. Other than these two negatives, I have had no issues with this yarn.
I tried Color Made Easy for the first time back in February and was completely struck by the inspiration gods. Lol. I wanted to make so many things. The drape this yarn creates is somewhat soothing. And not having to play yarn chicken with bigger projects is such a plus in my book. You can purchase this yarn from Lion Brand’s website (they are currently having a sale) or from Michael’s (they’re always having a sale, LOL).
If I had to rate this yarn, I’d give Color Made Easy a 9.5 out of 10 stars.
