I really like knitting with this yarn--it has a much nicer hand than Wool-Ease or even Encore, and it splits less than Brava does--but be warned that the colors are not always as they seem on this page. Canary in particular has a STRONG green undertone, almost to the point of being a spring green instead of a yellow. Several of the pastel-ish colors are much brighter in person, as well. You're probably better off going by the descriptions than the pictures.

I'm so surprised at the negative ratings on this yarn. I'm so in love with it, I think I'll make all my future projects with it! This is so incredibly soft for an acrylic yarn. There is absolutely NO plastic-y feel too it at all. I used to think KnitPicks Brava was a pretty soft acrylic option but this blows that out of the water - and out of my stash. It's absolutely perfect for baby items. It gets a bit of a halo on it, like an alpaca yarn would, and as for splitting - well, all plied yarns will do that. You just have to keep it in mind when you work with it. My only complaint is that I want more colors!

Not mightily thrilled. I decided to give this yarn a try despite the numerous negative reviews because I liked the idea of a washable wool, but I'm sorry to say, I can't give this high marks either. The high sheen on the skeins have an artificial plastic look and while as of yet I have not run across any broken or frayed skeins as some other reviewers have the yarn has a slippery feel to it and does bode well for maintaining gauge. I will remain loyal to Knit Picks Wool of the Andes........100 percent wool and made in Peru, not China! This yarn is a few steps down from other acrylic blends I have used. No more!

So. I read all the reviews before trying Mighty Stitch and, as a result, was wary of purchasing it for large projects until I tried it for some smaller items. A bunch of hats, mittens, and leg warmers later I’m ready and just bought two projects worth in sweater quantities. Don’t know if I knit and crochet oddly or something, but I don’t really get the splitting complaints...not that it hasn’t split on me ever, but I’ve never used a yarn that doesn’t do so at least occasionally. The comments that had me really skeptical about MS are the ones that compare it to Simply Soft (hate). This yarn is soft, but not in the same zero life, gross, droopy kind of way. It isn’t nearly as shiny and plastic as SS, and it actually has some elasticity. That being said, it doesn’t have the wooly feel of some other acrylic/wool blends. If I need that kind of texture, I’ll use WOTA Superwash, but otherwise Mighty Stitch has become my go-to!

I stumbled across this yarn because a crochet pattern I was using said the display image was worked up with this yarn. I wasn’t sure what to expect because I still was looking for that one yarn that I could fall in love with for all my projects. I fell in love with this yarn. I primary make crocheted amigurumi and this material was perfect. The yarn stretches enough to allow for the stuffing, and has a remarkable softness that make the animals perfect for snuggling. I’ve read some of the other reviews since I received my first order. There have been a couple of balls that have had multiple joins, but I have purchased yarns from bigger labels that have had the same issues. I have had some experience with splitting, but it wasn’t a major problem, and was no more than. What I experienced with other yarns. I am a fan of Caron Simply soft, but I loved the Mighty Stitch even more. My only request would be for more shades to be added. And that I want to buy one of everything. I get this yarn was reasonably priced, worked up well, and created a beautiful finished product. I will definitely purchase this again.
