Very soft
This is lovely and soft however I find it splits rather easily. (Posted on 09/07/2021)
Quality and price
The Emu yarn is very soft and a great choice of colours I have just started to knit a cardigan for my granddaughter, it knits up really well. The price is very good value. I have just recommended it to my sister-in-law who does a lot of knitting. As a knitter and crocheter I shall certainly be ordering more of it. (Posted on 04/07/2021)
I recently had two deliveries of Emu double knit yarn, I hadn’t seen it for more years than I can remember and I am really impressed with it, it’s really lovely and knits up beautifully. (Posted on 15/06/2021)
Excellent quality wool for an excellent price!!
When I found out Emu was back, well my basket was filled (more than twice). It’s super soft and snuggly. If you don’t know Emu, please buy it! (Posted on 15/06/2021)
A great array of colours to choose from at such a fantastic price
Emu yarn is great quality and very soft to the touch so would be great for all sorts of knit and crochet projects, even baby items which is fab! As someone who loves to make baby blankets in non-traditional colours it’s great to have a premium acrylic option with a great array of colours to choose from at such a fantastic price, I would definitely recommend trying it for yourself.

It’s extremely soft, you couldn’t ask for anything more – it’s perfect
I’ve really enjoyed using Emu, for an acrylic dk it’s extremely soft, so soft I’d be very tempted to use it for baby items. Even though it is soft it doesn’t lack stitch definition, which is great. There’s a massive choice of colours, I don’t think you could ask for anything more, it’s perfect! (Posted on 15/06/2021)
Love Emu. Can’t wait until I get paid to buy more
I love Emu. I have already knit four cardigans with it. It is so soft and the colours are so beautiful. I would definitely recommend it. (Posted on 15/06/2021)
Emu yarn
Yarn felt really soft when I opened my package, haven't used yet but by the softness and feel of it i shouldnt have a problem with it, I should be back for more (Posted on 23/05/2021)
A rainbow of delight
I tentatively dipped my toes in with purchasing this new yarn. It's fairly safe to say that I was delighted, and have now dived in with several more orders. What's not to love? It's soft, squishy, a delight to knit with, a beautiful array of colours to choose from, and a fantastic price. It will definitely keep me coming back for more. If I crocheted I'd say I was hooked ???? (Posted on 23/05/2021)
Wonderfully soft and squishy
What a pleasure it is to use this yarn. The colour selection is fabulous. The feel of the yarn is amazing. So soft. I'm a crocheter and it is wonderful to use with my crochet hook. The stitch definition it gives is very good. I'm mainly a blanket maker and this yarn is perfect for that but will be lovely to use on many other projects too. (Posted on 22/05/2021)
Joy to work with
As someone with a chronic pain condition the texture and ease of use of any yarn I purchase is a number 1 priority for me. Can honestly say this is lovely to work with, slips easily and comfortably off the hook and has good stitch definition. I’m using it for baby makes and as a nana comfort for wee ones is key. This yarn wouldn’t irritate the delicate skin of little ones, it’s lovely and soft. (Posted on 21/05/2021)
Beautiful selection of colours!
I was excited to have the opportunity to try out Emu Classic DK from Knitting Network. My first impression was that the yarn is very soft and it comes in a beautiful selection of colours, my personal favourite being Bubblegum! The yarn is very soft and slipped off my hook easily, which is good when creating larger projects. The yarn creates a beautiful soft fabric, perfect for making blankets, and I was also really impressed with how the yarn became even softer after washing! I can see myself using this yarn again in the future. (Posted on 11/05/2021)
