Yarn Review- Sprightly Yarn Acrylic Worsted

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

PRO’s

  • Cheaply priced
  • Doesn’t tangle
  • 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)

CON’s

  • 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
