Review

Premier Dream is an inexpensive acrylic yarn that is both soft and sturdy. I picked this up to do a tapestry because I liked the shade of pink but it works very well for traditional knitting and crochet projects. It is a stellar basic yarn choice and the low price makes it perfect for completing a larger project. It was also very easy to work with.

Aesthetics

I picked up a few shades of this yarn. The color options were bright and attractive, however, there are few color options available. There are 17 total colors but five of them are stripes and a handful of them are just different shades of the same. Of the colors they do have, they are available in your basics, black, white, red, yellow, green etc.

Once worked with, the yarn holds its brightness, it does not pill and generally looks attractive. It is also very soft without becoming weak and prone to tangles. It would make great blankets and items that sit on the skin.

It lost points because despite its hardiness, there is no “luxury” to this yarn. It’s inexpensive and looks it. This yarn is great for fun projects, children’s wear, funky hats, home goods, etc but it won’t look as nice in certain garments.

Difficulty

This yarn is very soft so I expected it to split and have issues with unraveling. I was VERY surprised to find that it was well made and easy to work with. I did not run into any tangles or weak spots in the yarn. This yarn can be worked quickly with very few mistakes.

A really solid beginner’s yarn.

Final Thoughts

Premier Dream isn’t a spectacular yarn but it is a very good yarn. It works up well and is a great option for larger projects, testing new techniques, clothing that will be seeing a lot of wear but still need to be comfy. All in all, it’s a nice solid yarn choice.

*The yardage on the package is listed as 224 yards but the website says 190. This MIGHT be because of a difference between the variegated version and the solid color. A few companies sell smaller skeins of variegated yarns but list them with solids. Just an FYI.
