A week ago, I was at Walmart and wanted to pick up some red & green to start working on some charity Christmas stockings. That's when I spotted Red Heart Super Saver Ombre Scuba yarn, 482 yards for half price $5.39. So I bought one. Pretty colors.

Finally got around to winding it into centre pull balls early this morning. GADS, the knots were abundant!! Instead of 4 to 5 ounces balls, I was getting 2 & sometimes close to 3 ounce balls. Frustrating. I quit about half way through the skein. Looks like I have a fresh supply of waste yarn.

If you have the receipt I would return it to Walmart and get my $$ back.

This isn't about knots (I'm new here) but about Mandala Stripes yarn. I made the front of a shirt using one cake and had another cake for the back of the shirt. Same colors, same arrangement. Today I began the shirt back to discover that the dyes had transferred - for example, the pink instead of being solid has specks of blue, purple, and teal scattered throughout. I'm not going to be able to use it for the shirt and will now have to buy another cake while coming up with a use for the speckled stripes. Has this happened to any of you?

Take it back, that is way too many knots to be acceptable.

I had that happen one time. I called the manufacturer and they sent me a new skein. :)

I'll do that. Thanks for the suggestion.

Indeed it is.

Wow. Haven't had the speckled dye issue with a commercially produced yarn. That's a bummer. I agree with GrammaAnn. Write the company.

I've had big speckles in Patons Kroy sock yarn. Never in a repeatable location.

If you contact Red Heart they will send you replacement yarn. I had a problem with the yarn I bought being under the weight it was supposed to be. They sent me 4 skeins of replacement yarn.

I found the same thing with Caron braids that are of many colors. I knit for charity on my Machine, and there were knots every for or two, and I took it back without issue, that was Michaels.
