Soft & Shiny Solid Yarn by Loops & Threads® is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Black is not black Ordered the Soft & Shiny in black. When it arrived, it was a very dark green, not a true black. Called customer service and they said that it was indeed a green yarn which I did not see mentioned when ordering.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful but difficult... The yarn is just as advertised - vibrant color, soft and silky, and absolutely gorgeous! BUT... this is not a speed crafter's friend. The fibrs split constantly. It's also so light, it's almost a 3 weight instead of the 4 as advertised. If I would have known that, I would have ordered more because now my counts are off. C'est la vie.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Soft but much lighter in colour than advertised! Haven't started working with it yet, but the vintage indigo is more like a medium blue than advertised.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Knots This is my first time using this yarn. It’s pretty and soft, but I’ve used only about a third of a skein and I’ve come across five knots/joins already.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful, but difficult Thought the yarn is beautiful, especially in gray, and soft, it is extremely hard to work with. The fibers split easily, causing the hook to constantly snag. This makes it hard to undo sections because the fibers knot up. Another down side is that the yarn doesn't hold it's shape. Honestly, the only positive is the look and feel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colours and easy to use This wool is one of my favourites! It comes in a very large variety of colours that are rich and beautiful. I use this wool a lot and find it easy to use. A true 4 , as well. I use for shawls and scarves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Yarn I LOVE this yarn! It makes amazing, soft, and cuddly baby blankets. I doesn’t crochet up really tight as it’s kind of silky to the touch, but the blankets I’ve made with it are flying off the shelf. I can’t make them fast enough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just like the name says! beautiful wide range of colors. Comparable to Caron Yarn but silkier. Both r hard to find some colors in stock. No problems crocheting with the yarn. It can tend to split if working loose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First time purchase. I saw this yarn in store and loved the look and feel but not sufficient stock for large crochet Afghan. I ordered bulk amount online before reading reviews. Had second thoughts but figured I would try it myself and return unused skeins if dissatisfied. Just finished the first skein and pleasantly surprised. It works up beautifully. No problem holding stitches or knotting. I love the feel and sheen. Will be a beautiful item when finished.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Yarn, but Supply issues? My significant other likes this yarn much more than the comparative brands, so I have been using it over the course of this year to make a temperature blanket (crochet one row a day with colors that coordinate with a specific temperature range representing the highest temperature of that day). As such, I usually buy specific colors when I am close to running out, since I can't predict the weather. But now I see that some colors are either unavailable in store, or not even available online. Is this item being discontinued, or are there just production issues due to this year's events? I would love to be able to complete the last few months of this blanket with the same brand of yarn if possible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite This is a beautiful yarn, the colours are vivid and the yarn works up into a lovely soft finish. I read complaints in previous reviews that it was too slippery but that is the beauty of this yarn, it is soft and sleek, if you don’t like that type of yarn you won’t like this. Very similar to Caron Simply Soft yarn but less expensive. Just love it! Would like to see more colour choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works up beautifully PLEASE do not discontinue this yarn in solids, I use it for a huge amount of projects.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the texture great for what we use it for. We went in looking for different color yarns so we wouldn't have to shop anywhere else we found that the yarn was priced ok. Trouble is there were not enough choices in color

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love how it feels not how it works I will only continue to buy this yarn to finish my current projects. It’s incredibly soft and I love touching it. I thought I could use this for always, until I actually tried to use it. It gets caught on the hook a LOT. I have made a few mistakes in my current baby blanket but I hate using this yarn so much I will not redo it. So disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Shiny, soft, splits, catches and tangles. I bought this in yellow to make a crocheted Pikachu newborn hat and diaper cover. It was easier on the eyes for a baby than a bright yellow yarn. It's the first time I'm using it. It is pretty and soft, but it is slippery, like it's coated with silicone or something. It makes my fingertips feel slick and that makes the project harder to hold on to. It says it's a 4 Medium weight but it seems more like a 3. It splits and catches almost all the time. It also tangles easily yet doesn't hold a knot well. Like others mentioned, it throws off fine fibers that go all over, like my face, nose and eyes. I put on a face mask and used reading glasses which helped. My project required Medium 4 yarn but this is too thin. I used two strands together to make the diaper cover which turned out more like the pattern. I might do the hat over. The finished product looks and feels nice, but I won't use this yarn again. I don't have a lot of confidence it will wash well either.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Catches on hook continuously I bought this yarn by mistake. It was by my preferred yarn and I looked at the color and tossed it in the cart. When I hit home I realized my mistake. Pulled it out this weekend, and definitely not impressed. It continuously catches on the hook and causes the stitch to have to be restarted. I tried various hooks and got the same results. Luckily, I only needed to use a small amount of this yarn. I won’t buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Yarn When is the Ice Coffee color back in stock??? Would love to make something with this color!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice I came across this yarn at my local store when searching for Christmas colors for small drawstring gift bags I'm making. I bought 4 colors and none had knots, but 1 did have a 2 inch bad section that I had to cut out. As for working with the yarn, it does feel thinner than a 4, but I just adjusted my hook to my liking. I originally used a 5mm, but moved down to a 3.75mm for my project and that was perfect. It is slippery so that may be an issue for some.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Beautiful luxurious yarn to crochet! I love the rich saturation of color, the shine, and luxurious feeling of this yarn! I crocheted myself an Afghan to curl up in using the Poison Apple color, and now all my girlfriend's want one!! It's like snuggling in rich, red lingerie. It feels like silk! I used a size I/9 crochet hook. Highly recommend this silky, luxurious, beautiful yarn!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely I love this yarn. It is exactly what it says, soft and shiney! I'm soooo upset that it seems to be unavailable... I certainly hope it's not going away!
Date published: 2020-04-29
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Definitely Soft & Shiny! I like the feel of this yarn! However, it's definitely a thin size 4 so I've been using it as a 3 with a smaller hook.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the feel Love the feel of this yarn. Very soft. Does not keep knots very well. Make sure you buy enough for your project since they discontinue colors without notice. I bought ginger peach and ran out before finishing my project and cannot get more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice! I have made a blanket for caron simply soft and just started a blanket with this yarn. I think that this yarn is softer and has more shine than caron. After I wash the blanket I will see how the yarn holds up. I also plan to crochet a fleece/flannel lining onto the blanket to make it warmer because this yarn is soft and has gaps when you're double crochet (same for caron simply soft however). When working with mostly single crochet you won't have that. That's the nature of this type of yarn so it's not a complaint it's just a way for me to make it warmer. I think I might like this better than caron. 4 stars for now until I wash the blanket!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Soft and nice It doesn't split as much as Caron Simply Soft. Enjoyed it much better than the Caron Simply Soft! I haven't washed it yet so hoping it will wash well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Actual soft and easy to work with I like to use this product is size 4.0-5.5mm knitting needles. When joining ends the Magic knot works well; regular knots, other other simple joins, will pull out since the yarn is quite soft and a little slick. The only problems I’ve had are that the yardages in each skein is wildly estimated. I’ve had a few skeins come up way short, like 2 ft short.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from undecided It is so pretty but very thin for a 4, hard to hold and work with due to being so slippery and soft. Bought around 16 or so skeins for Christmas. the colors were perfect bit I misplaced receipt and cannot return or swap it. Really is my loss as I LOVE loops and threads yarn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Way better than Caron's I LOVE THIS YARN! IT WORKS PERFECTLY WITH MY ADDI AND IT'S SO SOFT AND LOOKS LUXURIOUS, NOT CHEAP AND HARD.
