Hi friends! I reviewed a new yarn today!
The yarn is Loops & Threads Joy DK!
The weight is a Size 3/Light.
It is machine washable and low heat dryable.
They suggest an H hook but I swatched with an F hook as I always do with DK and sport weight yarns.
Long story short!
Personally, I like the yarn.
It is a bit stretchy so I had to go up one hook size for my chain then went down to the F hook for the rest of my stitches. Otherwise, it would pucker a bit at the base. After going up the hook size it was just right.
The finish is shiny and super soft. It is not splitty. I split the yarn two times but it left no wounds and that is really good since I used a hook two sizes smaller than suggested. There is a slight squeak factor but I had no issue. If you do I would suggest a wooden or brush nickel finished hook like these.
The packaging was super cute and very convenient to work with. It came in a ball! I have never gotten yarn in a ball. I love it!
I went ahead and made a video discussing it in depth...come see if you are interested.
Is there anything else you would like to know about this yarn? Feel free to ask!
