I got some of that thread and tried and it up beautiful and it is very nice thread to work with
I have knitted a lot of outfits with yarn made in Tukey, and the results were very good..
I have bought yarn from Big Lots for a $1 a ball and found it to be fine. I have made hats and scarves. Wears well, better than some more expensive yarns
You could do a swatch let her see and feel and let her make the decision. If it is what she wants, why not.
I use that yarn because 3 ply is so hard to find. I volunteer for our local hospital and our baby hat club requires 3 ply. Every baby born in our hospital receives a hat and bootie set. The yarn is soft and durable, let's face it, nothing that is knit or croched looks the same after washed. Hobby Lobby has all if their "I Love Yarn" brand made in Turkey and you can't beat their baby sport yarn.
I don't think it is so much is the yarn worth it as is your DIL?
(a regular here)
I bought some Canan brand for finish a knit project. I had to use double strand to match the worsted (stil was thin) and it kept twisting.
Check out the post on July 28th or 29th "A cardigan for the coming winter". There are 7 or 8 pages and I'm sure she mentioned her yarn came from Big Lots and the whole sweater cost her $18. My kind of price.
I agree with with the ideas posted by others of making a swatch first. Most of the yarn sold at Big Lots are overstocks from other stores just like the yarn Tuesday Morning sells. If you like the yarn and it suits your project it should be fine.
My DIL bought acrylic yarn from Big Lots and wants me to knit her a sweater. The yarn was made in Turkey. Would you knit a sweater that was a $1.00 each? It is a 3 ply and very soft to the touch. I just don't know if it would be worth the time for a sweater.
As someone else said, for that amount of work, I would knit a LARGE swatch and beat on it and see what it does.
a lot of the yard in the UK is from Turkey and extremely good value. I have made several things with different kinds and always found washing etc. no problem
I bought some of these in 2 colors and it works up beautifully. Seems like a decent yarn to me and at $1.00 a skein it is a real bargain.
