I had never heard of Sprightly yarns before, not surprising since they are exclusive to Craftsy which is a company based in the USA.
So when I agreed to design a pattern for a Craftsy kit, I was delighted when this lovely yarn was shipped to me.
First of all you can get it shipped to the UK (and a lot more countries) and I checked out their shipping rates. Up to 42 balls of this yarn is at standard shipping rate of £11.33
Now the yarn is on sale at the moment at £2.19 (pretty much a bargain if you ask me) the normal price being £3.64. So if you decided to club together with friends (or hoard it all to yourself as I would) at the sale price with postage it works out at £2.49 a ball, which is still very reasonable.
Ok, so down to the yarn.
First it is aran (worsted) yarn and they suggest using UK-6mm, USA-J crochet hook or UK-5mm, USA-8 knitting needles
It is 100% acrylic and comes in 32 shades
It is 100g or 201 yards per ball, skein
Looking at the yarn in the ball, it has a soft even feel
Soft yet sturdy feeling
even thickness throughout
works up lovely- even after frogging lol
lots and lots of colours
machine wash and tumble dry- mean it is good for parents (must try some cardigans for Sarah)
has to be shipped, so if you run out….arggg
not everyone likes acrylic yarns
I have decided to use the pewter in my newest design and i may have to get some shipped for future projects as it really is a lovely yarn to use
