I have used Brava yarn on several occasions now, and really do NOT like it. It has a sheen to it (similar to Caron Simply Soft), and feels "squeaky" in your hands. There is also a lot of inconsistency in thickness between colors. I purchased 5 colors for a pillow, and certain colors were much thinner than others. Also LOTS of knots throughout skein. It is also nearly impossible to get even looking stitches on plain stockinette. This is an OK yarn for CHEAP projects (toys, etc) where you don't necessarily care about the guage or feel, or if you are knitting a busy texture stitch. For anything else, stay away from it.

I actually like this yarn, it has it's place and it's a good workhorse yarn. Is it fancy? No. At $2.49 I don't expect it to be fancy. I love hand dyed yarns and even higher priced LYS wool yarns, and I know that this isn't one of those yarns. Really, people. Get a grip. What do you expect for such a low price! What this yarn is excellent for is baby hats and baby blankets. You can get a couple hats out of one skein of yarn and a blanket doesn't cost you $80 to $100 to make like some of the higher priced LYS yarns (this is a true story, I made several baby blankets that cost close to $100, it's just not worth it and I can't always afford to do that). This yarn is soft and it washes up nicely and if the recipient doesn't like it, well I am not out much money. I made a ton of charity baby hats for the pregnancy crisis center and they were super cute and well received. Bravo, Brava!

Brava is my number one, all-purpose yarn. I've used over half the colors, and have no complaints (although "Seashell" is very neon, as another reviewer put it). It is easy to work with, very soft, and seems to wash well. The only things I dislike are that there seem to be many splices in the yarn, and they're not very neatly done. Also, some of the colors are very shiny, making them inappropriate for men's garments. Fortunately, the ones that come out shiny seem to mostly be the very soft, light colors, which are unlikely to be used for men's clothes anyway. As a note: the color called "Cornflower" is lovely, but inappropriately named. Cornflower blue is much more of a purplish blue.

I've been using Knitpicks for the better part of 11 years at this point, and have never been disappointed by the quality of the products I receive, especially in regards to quality vs price. Brava Worsted is no exception. I've ordered Brava repeatedly over the years and had fairly consistent good quality. Every once in a while I will receive a skein that is harder to work with than others, but I've never had to throw away a skein. Also, in regards to some of the comments I've seen regarding color on screen vs color in person. I'm careful to make sure my screen is properly white balanced before making purchases like this, and have never had any problems. Screen brightness or newness doesn't really make much of a difference if it's not white balanced properly. I have had one or two colors come off slightly different from what was on screen, but it's never been different enough that it was problematic to my ability to complete a project, and more often than not was a lighting problem on my end. The stitch definition and sheen are fantastic. I'm currently working on a queen size crocheted blanket in 5 colors with Brava Worsted, and it's the perfect weight/thickness, the stitch definition is perfect, it is absolutely beautiful, and is working up fantastically fast for how large a project it is. In fact I love it so much that I've already promised my fiance that once I finish it the next big project will be making him a king size one for our bed. If I had to give one reason why I keep going back to Brava Worsted for my projects year after year, it's because it's probably the softest acrylic yarn that I can find that has such great price per yard. I recommend this project to every new yarn crafter I meet, and will continue to do so in the future.

As with my review of Brava Sport, I'm giving the Brava Worsted high marks as well. I received my first order of the Brave Worsted today and I am as impressed with this as I am/was with the Brave Sport and am very pleased that this worsted weight is a tad lighter than other brands of worsted weight yarns and would put it on par with Deramores Studio DK which I have used extensively. It has the same twist, sheen and hand but comes in at a lower price when compared yard for yard. I also receive it quicker from Knit Picks than waiting for yarn to arrive from the United Kingdom to my location. I admit, the first skein I cracked open produced a massive yarn barf but so has every other brand of yarn that I've used regardless of brand, type or price point. There will always be a skein that gets belligerent and I've learned to almost enjoy untangling those challenges. I liken it to solving a puzzle. When a project requires a worsted weight, I will continue to purchase and use Knit Picks Brava Worsted as I feel it is an excellent value, works up well with excellent stitch definition and the color range is more than adequate. In addition, I have placed several orders with Knit Picks for yarn, tools and books and they have never messed up an order and everything arrives well packed and in pristine condition. Kudos to them!
