Soft & Shiny Solid Yarn by Loops & Threads® is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 36.
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 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 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!

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 4 out of 5 by from Softer than Caron Simply Soft I’ve been a Caron Simply Soft fan for many years, and still am, but Caron did not offer any variegated colors I liked for the project I was about to start. I can’t tell you how happy I am to have found his yarn! It is sooo soft and I like the extra sheen of the yarn. I have not experienced any of the problems the other reviewers talked about and I’ve been through three skeins so far. Online doesn’t show all the solid colors I was able to choose from in store even though it says the solids are only available online. I would say the only downside to this yarn is if you plan to use it in a project with other yarns it will be quite noticeable because of the extra sheen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can be difficult, but worth it This yarn is gorgeous. The shine and touch is exquisite. However, what a previous customer reviewed is true; it’s difficult to work with because it’s sooooo silky. There were a few flaws in each of the skeins I purchased, which were 2 cream and 2 rosy mauve. I bought rose gold ornaments for my Christmas tree, and I decided to use this yarn to crochet a tree skirt to match. There were a couple pieces that were broken or messed up, but I didn’t experience any shedding. The yarn is slippery and difficult to work with (it took some getting used to), but I will say it’s totally worth it. The tree skirt turned out GORGEOUS, and will look so pretty under the lit tree. I loved it enough that I’m purchasing more to make a red, green, and gold tree skirt for when I use the normal ornaments!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely Poor Quality I picked this up because it is similar to Caron Simply Soft in looks on the shelf. The colors are great and it is super soft. However, the fibers are falling apart as I work with it. The skein I'm working with has fibers literally flying off of it as I work. Very disappointed because I was using it to make chemo hats since it is so soft. I'm just afraid anything made with it will not last even with handwashing as gently as possible.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful quality!!! I have used 3 1/2 skeins of this so far & it is a mess!!! It is so slippery that it will not hold a knot. They want to come apart & each skein has had flaws in them!!! I have been knitting & crocheting for about 70 years & this is the worst yarn I have ever worked with. Will never buy it again even though it is soft to the touch for scarfs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So soft This yarn is very easy to work with. My only concern, if it is truly a concern, would be the magic knot joining skeins would stay as it is slippery. So used a little E6000 glue to make sure they did not come apart. Just a drop did the job. Making a C2C blanket and it is so shiny and beautiful. This is a gift but am going to make me one after the first of the year. I want mine in red. This one is cream.
