Review

I purchased a quite a bit of this yarn for a project as a low cost alternative to Simply Soft. This is a very soft and very bright yarn that is a good choice for colorful and snuggly projects but isn’t very sturdy which makes it largely unsuitable for anything that will get very heavy use.

Aesthetics

This yarn is bright and very soft. The colors really pop and the yarn itself has quite a bit of shine making it a very nice option for fun projects. The softness makes it an easy option to work with and the knit is smooth and easy.

There are a variety of colors available from candy colors to more subtle earthy shades. There are a few variegated options available but most of the colorways are solid letting you design your own look.

It is not tightly wound so it does tend towards a looser, fluffier stitch, there also can be a bit of flurry threads like the type you find with roving yarn

Difficulty

This yarn knit up fairly quickly but given that it is a soft yarn, it does split very easily however, the imperfections caused by this are easily hidden by just tugging on the work a bit.

Though the yarn was not hard to work with, there were a few knots in the yarn itself. I also tried this yarn on a rigid heddle and it did not make for a great choice. It is a bit too soft and loose for the loom.

Final Thoughts

Bernat Satin is a very pretty and soft yarn. It creates a nice solid fabric despite its softness and makes a nice addition to a stash. I wouldn’t recommend it for anything that would see a lot of hard wear and tear due to how easy it is to snag but this is a nice yarn for garments.
