Chroma Twist Bulky

$5.00 - $8.99 100g / Hank  Original Price: $9.99


Our beloved waves of changing color from Chroma with a stunning new twist!

Each of the three plies are individually dyed with the same classic Chroma colorway before being spun together. The result is a sturdy yet soft yarn with subtle thick and thin differences for a hand-spun look and maximum contrast. No two hanks will ever be the same!

The bulky weight is a quick way to whip up anything that needs a twist of color: hats & scarves, kid's garments, or home decor. With a generous 100g of machine-washable superwash wool and nylon, every skein is like a work of art.

I love working with this yarn. It is soft and works up into a beautifully toned piece. My only comment is that when knitting on 10-1\2 needles (mid-range of the recommensed needle sizes), does not produce as hefty a fabric as I would have expected. Perhaps my piece will bloom with timw. I would recommend 9 to 10 needles for a better result.

I was so excited when this yarn came out that I immediately bought several skeins of various colors. And I am glad I did! It is soft and the colors are gorgeous! Much like the other Chroma yarns I've used, this one does have thick and thin spots in it, but the yarn is fairly consistent. I am using Drawing Room to make a mermaid tail blanket and it is perfect! I just wish the skeins were a bit bigger. The only thing that disappointed me is that in a couple of the skeins, there have been abrupt color change spots where the yarn is knotted (or in one case, the yarn was just kind of mashed together like they had tried twisting it together) but the knots are pretty secure so it's not the end of the world. At least not for me.

I love this Yarn! It's soft, easy to work with and works up fast. Also the colors are really vibrant, I've knit with two so far. I highly recommend it.

I am using this yarn to make cowls. You get 127 yds per skein, so my cowls are not too skimpy. I've ordered 10 skeins so far, in various colors, and so far I've liked all the colors. The yarn is soft enough to wear next to your skin. My only complaint is that the yarn is a little fuzzy. Not a problem if you are making hats/scarves that type of thing. But I don't think I'd make an entire sweater using this yarn.

This yarn is beautiful and soft- it is a delight to knit with. I made a cabled hat for my mother in law, and it looks stunning! I used the Lupine, and I love how it went from hot pink to purple, to more of a bluish purple. I would definitely buy this again.

I've read so many of the negative reviews I just have to say I love this yarn. This is such a soft yarn it is a delight to work with. It is as close to a hand woven and dyed yarn as you'll get and at a third of the price. Yes the yarn varies from thick to to thin as does most hand woven yarn. I love that . It adds character to the project. I made a fantastic swing coat out of the Lupine. WOW. I get stopped everywhere I go. Yes no two skeins are the same . The coats took 14 skeins so I hand lots to choose from as I went along. I saved one mainly Blue/Purple skein for the trim and collar. It was fun to let the coat unfold without my having to organize it all. Just Knit and watch. Yes there are knots it the yarn, but I couldn't pull them apart with all my strength, so I am trusting they will hold. On my next project I'll probably cut the yarn and join at the seam just in case. If you have an adventuresome spirit definitely go for this yarn. I've just ordered enough of the Chroma Worsted to make a lighter weight spring coat. I can hardly wait for it to arrive.

Very disappointed with Chroma Twist Bulky. Thought the colors would be much nicer. Color I chose was Hollyhock. Doesn't look at all like picture.

Loved working with this yarn!!! It knitted up super quickly and never split on me! Seriously, lighting fast (size 10 needles were perfect). I am seriously thinking about making a blanket out of this wool!

Love this yarn for hats. Knitting hats for charity, and this yarn is soft and warm. Knits up quickly on size 10 needles. Some of the colors don't seem the same as pictured, but for my purposes it really doesn't matter. All have been pretty, and if you are looking for some muted colors, check out drawing room. It's really lovely.

Colors are beautiful and much more vibrant than what they appear online. The yarn is soft but I found that sections were thin, almost worsted weight. It also grew ALOT when I blocked it, so much so that I would have gone down a needle size had I known even though I got the proper gauge with size 10 needles.

Lovely yarn, super soft and enjoyable to knit with. I hope this becomes a permanent yarn at Knit Picks!

I love this yarn for a number of reasons. First, it looks like handspun. Second, the nylon gives it just the right amount of bounce. Third, no two skeins are alike, so every project is one-of-a-kind. Next, it is bulky, so projects work up quickly. It is super-soft and a joy to knit with. Hint: If using more than one skein, when it comes time to combine yarn, knit in fair isle style for one or two rows, i.e., knit one stitch from first skein, knit one stitch from second skein. Then continue knitting with the second skein. This will help the colors to blend beautifully.

Love this soft, bulky yarn however, I order 2 skeins of Vermont colorway. One skein was beautifully gradated while the other was just a mix of colors without defined change. Gift scarf will now be my scarf instead.

This yarn is so much fun and the colors are vibrant! I ordered Ferris Wheel - colors did not look exactly like online, but I love it! Easy to work with.
