Mandala Thick & Quick

Mandala yarn has always been a favorite of mine. It all started a few years ago when I saw those little cakes of gradient color and I knew I just had to have them. Really, I started more of a collection because a lot of those cakes were so beautiful I wasn't sure what to make with them.

One of my first pieces was the Valley of Flowers Wrap Scarf which is made by holding 3 cakes of regular Mandala yarn together while crocheting. It’s a beautiful result.

The colors are so unique and interesting and they look great blended together. Which brings me to the new Mandala yarn, Thick and Quick. As a longtime user of Mandala and Wool Ease Thick and Quick (both from Lion Brand) I can honestly say that this is one of my favorite yarns ever because it’s the perfect blend of the two!

The texture is very sturdy and the color ways have perfectly blended coloring, as though they were hand dyed.

While shopping at my local craft store I stumbled upon a small display of Lion Brand cakes. I immediately went over to the Thick and Quick section and began throwing all the color ways in my shopping cart knowing exactly what I was going to use this yarn for.

Just look at those colors and all the possibilities. One of the things I like about them is that they are all very wearable color ways. Even the brighter colors are suitable for everyday wear.

Perfectly speckled and blended and already caked. Have I ever mentioned how I always wind my yarn into cakes before I use them? Something about a center-pull just makes things easier while crocheting. As a bonus, this yarn is already caked and ready to go, which I absolutely love.
