A practical everyday yarn, Stylecraft Special DK is trusted to complete all kinds of projects, from large blankets to delicate baby clothes. Compared to many other 100% acrylic DK yarns, it’s an especially soft, high-quality acrylic that works up without any scratchiness or squeaks.

It's OK
I bought this because of the good reviews but have been a bit disappointed. It is thinner than other DK yarns and tends to split.
I probably will not order it again.

Nice yarn
When worked up, it is soft and doesn't split. I personally don't like the wooly feel I get from the yarn. All in all a good yarn, but I will probably not use it again. (Posted on 27/06/2019)

Great Wool
I bought this to knit a blanket.
The delivery arrived promptly, with good communication from knitting network to update me along the way.
When the wool arrived it was not quite the colour I wanted. Returning was an easy process and money refunded into my account.
The wool is lovely to knit with, no splitting as I knit.
Will definitely buy here again for next project next.
