Uptown DK is BY FAR my fave acrylic. It’s great for decorative kid items that need to be washable. Easy to knit with, just untwists a little with cast-ons and rip-outs. That’s a nitpicky little thing on such a great yarn at this price point.

Uptown Worsted is my new favorite acrylic. Washes and dries like a dream. Excellent colors. No pilling. Feels very nice. I just made a baby blanket out of it, and will be making more.

I just used Deluxe Worsted for the first time in a very deep purple (Heliotrope) color and was totally surprised that it did NOT bleed into the lighter color also used in the same project. I was pleased with the yarn and it is very soft.
