Rated 1 out of 5 by Shejay SameBrand & color name sold in Walmart, not same quality DAMAGED-RUN QUALITY
Maybe yarn sold on this site is seconds or poor quality discarded runs, but it in no way matched the quality of the Lion Brand Homespun Thick & Quick Painted Desert Super Bulky 6 earn I bought at Walmart. The Walmart yarn was hard to work and tangled because of its texture, but this yarn was at least twice as thick, had uneven spinning such that at times the wiggly texture would give way to flat unspun stretches of yarn that just fell apart and other times big fluffy bunches of what looked like dust bunnies. The colors were not as rich, and the feel of the worked piece was rougher, where the Walmart yarn yielded a soft, almost silky finished piece. This was definitely not the same yarn, even if it was labeled the same. And it wasn't just a lot thing, because I bought the Walmart earn several weeks apart at two different stores. Fabric.com's yarn was just really poor quality. My guess is that it was discards, meant to be sold as discounted second-rate or damaged-run yarn. Fortunately, I was near the end of my piece and was able to manage by making my piece shorter than expected, but BE WARNED: THIS IS NOT QUALITY YARN.
