JUMBO YARN FIRST IMPRESSION

JUMBO YARN FIRST IMPRESSION


hey guys welcome back to Marshco
Designs I’m Kayla and I’m here today with a first impressions here for you
and so we have loops & threads jumbo yarn today yeah basically just wanted to
chitchat about that for a little bit so this is looped ins threads wild and free
edition of their Jumbo yarn which is pretty awesome I so far I’ve used it in
two different patterns here and I’m in the process of making our just finishing
a pattern here so I thought I’d just do a little first impressions I feel like I
I got enough from it from doing the one pattern so um you know we’ll just get
right into it here so first of all I guess the feel of it right off the bat
it’s it’s kind of just like a jersey knit type of a material and so it’s it’s
the yarn but it’s the the tube with like yarn so it’s got fabric and then on the
inside there’s like cotton or some sort of stuffing I’m sure it’s like synthetic
stuffing actually nothin I’m thinking of it polyester that’s what it is so it’s
the the jersey knit material and then there’s polyester stuffed in the inside
so obviously it makes it really really soft really good for blankets pillows
whatever you want I guess have you been following me on Instagram you see that I
made this super cute yoga bag out of this and then the other color that I got
which I think it’s ivory yeah so and since it’s got the
the jersey material and it was it’s really durable so it was perfect
candidate for a yoga bat bag holder yoga mat bag carrier there we go got it
okay so onto the impression so with this you get 49 yards in just one skin which
I guess in perspective so for my yoga mat bag pattern it took one and a half
skins which pretty good for jumbo alright more back into this oh yes
so since this is jumbo yarn here its jumbo size seven and then if you look
over here it says 35 millimeter or u.s. 70 hook which is massive and I did not
have one of those hooks before I started working with this yarn so I need to go
grab that and show you guys here this is a 35 millimeter hook it is massive um
but it actually was pretty fun to work with and especially with this particular
yarn it was worked really easy since it was a wooden hook it the stitches just
like split right off the hook which was awesome okay um what else we got in here
okay so this one the actual color of it is called charcoal there’s charcoal
ivory and let me pull up the other ones cuz I know there was a couple other ones
they had here a rose gold they have the charcoal which I have they have the
ivory they have like a lilac a a navy a baby blue a gray and a teal so like
that’s pretty good for this line like decent amount of colors they at least
have all of the the neutral colors which that’s normally what I’m drawn to so oh
okay so when you’re unraveling this thing you pull this out here
okay so here’s all the polyester filling in there I found that the best thing
when you’re working with this is to pull a little bit of this out when you’re
working with it and like that and tie the end off
otherwise you’re just gonna have polyester fiber everywhere so tie that
off before you get started the other thing is oh okay well it didn’t come off
that easy the very first time I used it so there we are um there’s a giant tag
that’s in here and it’s sewn on so you’re definitely gonna have to get a
scissors and cut that off and it’s sewn on there pretty close so if you’re
really wanting to use like the very end of this you’re gonna have to be careful
when you pull it out otherwise it’s gonna like affect the material a little
bit um yeah but a really giant tag so not sure how I feel about that but you
know there are worse things I suppose um as far as like a lot of ends in it I
didn’t find a ton of ends when I was working with it which was good because
the ends were literally just the fabric sewn together and I found that when I
was working with it when I’d comp to an end I’d have to like cut it and can make
the invisible not do it it says that it’s machine washable so yay nice and
easy cleaning then from a downer side is that it’s not machine dryable so mm I’ve
thrown mine through the washer and dryer so um and it’s still holding up but
according to tag it’s not dryable so I guess are you going to make a blanket or
if you’re doing like some some pattern that you don’t want it to lose its shape
then definitely don’t throw it in the dryer lay it flat to dry and and then
yeah then I should be fine but like I said I’ve thrown the one pattern that I
have done I threw that in the wash and the dryer and it’s totally fine um I
guess I suppose apart from losing shape probably you
know some of that polyester fiber might come out when you’re drying it maybe
that’s what they’re worried about um so you know use your best judgment I guess
if you’re going to wash and dry it or not um yeah so I guess overall would I
buy it again probably yeah most definitely yeah um it was fun to work
with it worked up super quick it had a really
nice visually appealing ending to each pattern so yeah I definitely would do it
again and alright guys well that’s all I have for you today if you enjoyed this
