"Emu Classic DK is very soft and comes in a beautiful selection of colours, my personal favourite being Bubblegum! It creates a beautiful soft fabric, perfect for making blankets, and I was really impressed with how the yarn became even softer after washing!" 


"I've really enjoyed using Emu, for an acrylic DK it's extremely soft, so soft it's great to use 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!"


"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."
