August Product Review - Loops & Thread Impeccable Worsted Yarn

My personal stash as of today...

Acrylic naysayers aside I like Michaels brand Loops & Threads Impeccable Worsted Yarn.  At the current market price it offers good price value with respect to it's volume.  Locally it's available here for about $3.49 + sales tax (currently 5% ish).  The hallmark of the equation is the fact that similarly priced yarns have less yardage.  Lion Brand's Vanna's Choice is comparable in texture (both are soft acrylics) but L&T has a slightly different feel to it.  It also boasts only a yardage of 170 yards / skein for solids, whereas L&T comes out to 268 yards / skein for their solids.  A drawback is they don't have the plethora of colors that VC has, but they still to have the good ole standards and some interesting combinations in their variegated options.  This brand is also largely only available at Michaels stores, it's somewhat difficult to find online for sale like some of the other big name yarn company options.  All in all, I believe it's a good fit for someone on a budget, especially if you like it's color choices and I give it a 5 star!
