Yarn Review: Knit Picks Brava

I love Knit Picks Brava. In fact, I have used over 40 skeins of it in the past 2 years!

Brava is a soft, high quality acrylic yarn, available in Sport, Worsted, and Bulky weights. Like most acrylics, it is machine washable and comes in many beautiful colors. I find that it does not split when you are knitting or crocheting with it, and I have not had any problems with my projects pilling when washed. It also works well on my [easyazon_link identifier=”B000XT3OPG” locale=”US” tag=”yayforyarn-20″]Addi Knitting Machines[/easyazon_link]. Some colors are made in Turkey, and others are made in China. I think the colors made in Turkey are slightly better quality than the ones made in China, but I would still classify both types as high quality acrylic yarn.

My favorite thing about Brava is the price. Brava is just as inexpensive as [easyazon_link identifier=”B0017342OY” locale=”US” tag=”yayforyarn-20″]Red Heart Super Saver[/easyazon_link], with the quality of many “premium” acrylics. I have tried all of the major brands of “value” acrylic yarns, and I prefer Brava over all of them.

Brava is definitely my favorite acrylic yarn. I have made afghans, hats, scarfs, and many other projects with this yarn, and highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a soft, yet durable acrylic yarn.

Have you ever used Knit Picks Brava? What did you think of it?
Happy Yarning! 🙂

    I’m right with you on this review of KnitPicks Brava line. I stumbled upon this yarn whilst searching for something just a little lighter than DK, purchased some Brava Sport and I was SOLD! I have purchased and used a boatload of the Brava Sport for a wide variety of crochet projects and it never fails to deliver. Fantastic yarn at an incredible price and the shipping is free after purchasing a certain dollar amount. Shipping is very quick too and all of my orders have arrived in perfect condition and everything is correct. KnitPicks is one of the best online yarn shops out there and I’ve spent a lot of money at many of them. Love this site because of their pattern/book/tool selection as well. Some knitters and crocheters poo-poo KnitPicks Brava and, frankly, I don’t understand it because I’ve used many different types of yarn and this will hold a candle to all.
