Lorenz “giftsbychristine.com” (Kyles Ford, TN) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Aunt Lydia 153.0201 Jumbo Crochet Cotton, White (Misc.) I crochet professionally and need lots of material in matched dye lots so that I don’t have MUCHO balls of thread with the labels tucked inside to match up when I have another batch of Irish Dance Collars to work on. Purchased several of these JUMBO balls and found that I can NOT speed crochet with the thread. If you run your finger tips down the thread, the feel is smooth, BUT when you take your hook to it and wrap it around your fingers the thread stiff and coarse, so you have to pull out stitches often because they are not consistantly the same size….. therefore, the time allotted to finish a row or item is greatly advanced and can be frustrating when you have large orders. On the other hand, when the item is finished, and knowing that the size 10 thread width has been shrinking over the years, so that a design or pattern perfected MANY years ago using size 10 is no longer the finished sized as stated or desired, this thread makes a finished product that requires little blocking or stretching, because it is stiff or has a starched effect built within. Probably has a lot of sizing in the processing of the thread. I will use what I have and hopefully the inner thread or other balls will be of a better texture. Hope this has been of help ~ Have a GREAT day!! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (3) Reply 6 of 7 people found the following review helpful Good product but broken thread, September 21, 2013 By Vijay Kumar Viswanathan “Vijay” (FL, USA) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Aunt Lydia 153.0201 Jumbo Crochet Cotton, White (Misc.) My wife has been using this product for a long time now and find it as having the best economic value when it comes to threads. However, she has been complaining recently that sometimes the thread is broken or packages such that she gets both ends on top. This leads to a lot of problem with the thread getting entangled. She has also sometimes seen a broken thread which leads to knots in her work. All in all, worth the money but product quality and packaging should be paid more attention to. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 3 of 3 people found the following review helpful Crochet cotton, December 30, 2013 By Margaret Jones – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Aunt Lydia 153.0201 Jumbo Crochet Cotton, White (Misc.) Received this actually a few days early. It is exactly as described and was packed well. It is perfect for making large objects as you don’t have to change rolls of thread during the projects. I find this brand to be the easiest to work with. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
