Bought this to work on an afghan with some Astra yarn I have in my stash. This colour will work very well with what I have.
I make crochet dolls, the yarn is soft and durable and the price is right.
Patons is a very reliable brand. The aran astra yarn I recently purchased, knit up nicely. A great yarn to work with. I made a turtleneeck sweater for cool days. I use a pattern but adjust it to fit me better. The yarn is soft and nice to work with.It is machine washable and drys on low heat well. I knit in acrylic and wool blends too which I like. I have never tried cotton blends yet, not sure if maintenance is a problem.
Beautiful yarn with a nice, soft feel. Colour is exactly as pictured, so that's wonderful.
Have used Astra yarn for years so I’m very satisfied with the product. Most importantly the delivery time was very short. I believe it arrived 2 days after I ordered it. I was very pleased.
Paton's Astra is my go-to yarn for children's clothing and toys. It comes in a good range of colours and is an appropriate weight for most kiddie stuff. It is durable and washes well (much appreciated by their moms!) I keep a container of Astra in a rainbow of colours on hand at all times, because you never know when a grandchild is going to request a new hat or toy bunny or pullover.
