This is some of the best cheap acrylic yarn on the market. It's soft and easy to knit. Don't expect it to be wool and you won't be disappointed. The only actual complaint I have is that it yarn barfs if you so much as look sideways at it.

The Hue Shift afghan kit is fun to make and once you get onto the process, an easy one to knit while watching tv or listening to someone talking. It is about the right size for a lap robe or leg warmer, and priced right for a knitted gift for someone who needs machine washable. A very interesting project and easy. Make sure you knit with sharp pointed needles for picking up stitches as this is modular style.

I was quite pleasantly surprised to find that this acrylic yarn is rather soft! It's comfortable, cozy and makes for an excellent blanket. My one complaint is that I don't feel all of the pictures on the website accurately show the actual color of the yarn.. some of them are spot on, but the almond I received had more pinkish under tones, the eggplant purple was more royal and not as dark as I expected, and the avocado looks more like the peapod green, among a few others. It's not drastic or the end of the world, it's just a minor disappointment. However, for the price and the overall quality, I really can't complain too much. Long story short, especially for the price, this yarn is great and I'll absolutely buy it again.

Christmas Came Early!!! Just opened my huge box of yarn and it is so soft can't wait to get started but very disappointed in some of the colors as they weren't what I thought I was getting. I ordered during a great sale and most colors were backordered so choices were limited as I was trying to get 2 matching colors in same family to use with neutrals and none were available. Thought I was ordering a pinky red (Coral) as in description, but got pumpkin colored. Eggplant is more on the grapey purple tone rather than deeper color. Was going to make baby and doll clothes so all is useable and pretty, but now just doll clothes as not the colors I expected. Will order again next good sale but will do on phone so I can get input on actual color matching with some of what I got today as descriptions given aren't accurate.

I received some yarn from my Aunt for a blanket I am crocheting for her and loved it! I traced it back to Knit Picks and it's the Brava Sports Yarn. The colors are beautiful and bright. The yarn is soft and light weight. It's perfect. So much so that now I have placed an order so I can make a blanket for myself! I cannot wait to start on it and will be making many more using yarn from this sight. Love the Brava Sport Color and texture!

This is a pretty basic acrylic yarn. I purchased it to use for children's toys and knew that anything else was possibly a waste of high end yarn. I like my balls center pull and one of the skeins had some weird other fiber on the internal end and another skein weighed 10g less than the 100g on the wrapper. But for $2.99/skein and a wide range of colors I definitely will get my money's worth out of them. The yarn is soft enough and for 100g, it is bargain.

Okay, this is a follow-up to my previous rave review. Out of about 20, I got one skein of Tidepool that had the very rough texture Suzanne mentioned. I know with their excellent return policy, I could have gotten a refund for that skein, but it wasn't worth the fuss. If I'd bought more of that color, I would have returned it. The rest of the colors have been great, and I hope you don't lose faith, Suzanne!

I've ordered this yarn a couple of times now and have yet to be disappointed! It's a very soft acrylic, the colors are wonderful, it's very durable, and it's priced extremely fair. It worked VERY nicely for an afghan! I've recommended this yarn to many other crafters due to my love for this yarn and Knit Picks in general. I will definitely order this yarn again in the future!

It seems this stuff has gone down in quality now that it's made in China. I purchased some for the Hue Shift, and some for my mom, and multiple skeins have been shredded in multiple places. It also isn't plied very tightly, and feels very acrylic. The finished product LOOKS quite nice, but I'm very disappointed in the quality of the yarn that went into it.

Not what I was hoping for after reading reviews here and on Ravelry. Perhaps it is just the color I ordered (Asphalt heather)? I found it distinctly acrylic feeling (think Red Heart Super Saver as opposed to Red Heart Soft or Caron Simply Soft). On the plus side, the color is very saturated, and my swatch didn't fade or shrink when machine washed with warm water and tumble dried on high. The feel did improve when washed, but I would still be reluctant to wear anything made out of this yarn. I'm sure I'll come up with another use for it, but I'm shocked that so many reviewers have called this soft!

I was disappointed in this yarn and was sorry I didn't order one skein to check it out first. It is labeled at a #2, sport weight yarn but it knits like a worsted..much thicker yarn than I anticipated. It also is not a very soft yarn and doesn't have much drape. I will not use this yarn again.

I bought this yarn after reading such great reviews but I'm not happy with it . It seems to be broken a lot . My ball of blush was broken in 6 places . So now I'll have a lot ends to weave in , which I hate . The custard also had a big black smudge on it . I know it's not a very expensive yarn but I guess you get what you pay for !

A group of us make blankets and caps for the infants in the Neo-natal ICU at our local hospital. Brava is perfect! The colors are bright and cheery and out of 8 skeins of Brava I can get at least 10 blankets and caps.

I'm using this yarn to make this afghan -- http://www.etsy.com/listing/60225798/double-vision-pdf-pattern-for-knitted -- similar to the hue shift pattern, very pretty and easy. Like others, I was reluctant to go with acryllic, but this yarn is incredibly soft and almost creamy feeling, a real delight to knit. I was using Shine Sport for these afghans (I've made about a dozen), but there are more colors and the price is great. I'm a fan!

After reading rave reviews on Ravelry, I was more than happy to place my order without trepidation for buying sight unseen. Unfortunately when my order arrived a week later I was disappointed to say the least. Almond, Fig, Seraphim had a washed out, rose-ish hue, Caution was over saturated, Fairy Tale was bland. Mulberry was absolutely beautiful! Avacado was so-so. While I realize colors may vary slightly according to monitor settings, I checked on several different monitors to be sure I had as close to accurate representation as possible. I thought I'd found an answer to avoiding big box craft yarn for my acrylics but sadly, one gorgeous color isn't acceptable; not to mention the postage costs I'm paying for receiving and now returning. The yarn is so soft & squishy, really wanted to like it, but I'll be returning the entire order. I ended up hitting the usual craft stores and left a happy camper.

I just received my order from the Brava sale. WOW!!!! One of the colors I bought was Cotton Candy - and it is beautiful. The color swatch picture doesn't do it justice. Every color I chose is gorgeous! I love this yarn, it is so soft and works up really nice. I have knit a variety of baby gifts from this for friends, and they love the easy care and softness. You can't beat the price. I'm with the others - can't wait for even more colors.

I love Brava! This is by far the softest acrylic I have ever worked with! I have just knit 6 balls of it into hats and booties for babies at our local hospital. The colors are bright and gorgeous, not nearly as dull as the ones you buy at a craft store, and the amount of yarn in one ball is fantastic. I knit small baby/preemie 6 hats out of each ball!

I usually do not like using acrylic yarns, but this yarn is great. It has beautiful colors and a very soft feel. I hope they continue to increase the color choices of this yarn. I bought some extra for those little last minute projects.

I love this yarn, it's great to work with and the colors are yummy. The color I'm longing for and can't find is a sage green or pale sea green - would love to see this in Brava.

I am hooked on the Hue Shift throw. This is the first kit that I have ever ordered. I have loved making it and I plan on making several more. The Brava yarn is wonderful. I am a fairly new knitter (6yrs) and it took me a little further in skill. I agree that more colors would be wonderful.

I am another who HATES acrylic... But LOVES Brava!! It is pretty much impossible to find 1.) Acrylic yarn that feels FABULOUS, or 2.) Acrylic yarn in SPORT weight. I adore this yarn!! I gave it a 4 only because there are fewer colors for the sport weight Brava than the worsted weight. More colors, please!!!

I'm working on my third Hue Shift Afghan with Brava Sport yarn. It is so easy to work with! The colors are like eye candy, and it feels great in my hands while working with it.

In the last year or two I've become obsessed about using only natural natural fibers. However a recently project required the wash-ability of acrylic. Early in my knitting career I've used other acrylic brands but I have to say Brava Sport is the BEST acrylic yarn I've tried. It has a wonderful hand feel and the stitch definition is lovely. This is the acrylic yarn I've actually wanted to make clothing from.

So soft, so bright. Perfect for colorful baby items.
