Yarn Review: Loops & Threads Impeccable

I'm back with a (delayed) yarn review! This week I'm talking about Loops & Threads Impeccable. I've been using this yarn for quite a while, as it's very versatile. It has become one of my favorite staples!

Stats - 
Impeccable is a medium (4) weight, 100% acrylic yarn. It comes in skeins of 227 yards (solids), 192 yards (prints), and even Big! skeins of 858 yards.

Price & Availability - 4/5
Impeccable is a Michaels exclusive. It can be ordered online if you don't have a store near you. The smaller skeins go for $3.49 each, and the Impeccable Big! skeins go for $9.99. The price is pretty fair for good quality acrylic yarn. Michaels has great sales and coupons from time to time, so it's possible to get this yarn for pretty cheap!

Softness & Drape - 4/5
This is a soft but sturdy yarn. Comparing to brands with similar uses, Impeccable is much softer than Red Heart Super Saver, and sturdier than the super-soft Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn. In my opinion, it's a great yarn for blankets, and it's one of the yarns that have almost completely replaced Super Saver in my stash.

Look & Colors - 4/5
Impeccable has many solid colors to choose from! There are also several prints, heathers, and ombres. Being a Michaels exclusive, the availability and selection of colors is usually very good.

User Friendliness - 4/5
Working with Impeccable is easy and pleasant. There can be minimal splitting, but usually only after frogging several times. As always, machine wash and dry is a major plus. I've noticed very little pilling after washing, unlike similar acrylic yarns (Simply Soft and I Love This Yarn are pillers!).
Here's a blanket I made using Impeccable.

Overall Rating: 8/10
It's obvious, I'm a fan of Impeccable. It's an exclusive yarn, but the value is good, especially if you catch a sale. It's soft and sturdy, perfect for everyday projects. Color selection is great, and although it can split a little, overall it is very user-friendly and washes well.

Comparable Brands:
Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn
Red Heart Super Saver

So, what's your go-to acrylic yarn? What yarn should I try next? Let me know in the comments!
