Yarn Review: "Barcelona Big!" by Loops & Threads
Updated: May 20, 2022
I used "Barcelona Big!" yarn by Loops & Threads for two crocheted scarves. I used a size 6mm crochet hook for these projects, which worked well for the thickness of yarn. The green scarf is made with the color "Reef," and the purple color is "Stardust". The yarn is easy to use, very pretty, and machine-washable. However, it is not very soft. It is not rough or itchy, just not soft compared to most other yarns. I would buy this yarn again for a project that I do not care about the softness.
-comes in lots of pretty colors with gradients
-easy to use
-medium thickness, so quick for making projects
-not particularly soft or warm
I bought the Yarn at Michaels, which gives the follow info about the yarn:
