Yarn Review: "Bernat Pipsqueak Yarn"

Updated: 6 days ago

I made several blankets out of Bernat Pipsqueak Yarn. I love how soft and fuzzy the yarn is and it makes great blankets. However, an issue that I had with several of the balls is that the yarn was badly stained, but the stains were only on the inside of the ball and not the outside, so I did not realize they were stained until I had already used a significant part of the ball and could not return it. The stains looked like dye stains, and would not come out with washing.


Pros:

-super soft, fuzzy yarn

-lots of cute striped color combos

-machine washable


Cons:

-lots of dye stains in the yarns

-yarn tangles easily and it hard to untangle due to the fuzziness

-some of the color combos I like are very difficult to find in stores or online, and seem to be discontinued
