Yarn Review: Bernat Pop!

Happy Monday! This week I'm review Bernat Pop! It's one of the 4 brands of self-striping "cakes" that are really popular right now!

Bernat Pop! in "Paisley Pop."

Stats - 
Bernat Pop! is a 100% acrylic, 4-medium weight yarn. It comes in "cakes" of 280 yards.

Price & Availability - 3/5
Pop is sold at Walmart and online at Yarnspirations. Regular price for a Pop cake is $5.99. I would say this price is okay. It's cheaper than Caron Cakes, but it also comes in smaller skeins.

Softness & Drape - 4/5
Pop has decent softness for an acrylic yarn. I've found that it seems a little thicker than other medium weight yarns, which means the drape is not the best. It's good for more durable, solid projects, but I don't recommend it for lighter, openwork projects.

Look & Colors - 4/5
Like Caron Cakes and other similar cakes, Pop is self-striping. Each colorway has 5 shades, and it comes in 12 colorways.
Bernat Pop! in "Ebony and Ivory." I'm going back to get more of this colorway! Swoon!

User Friendliness - 5/5
Bernat Pop is easy to work with. I experienced no splitting, and it's soft on the fingers. Machine wash and dry is always a plus, too!

Overall Rating - 8/10
Overall, Bernat Pop is a good yarn. The price is okay, and the colors are nice. The yarn is soft and easy to work with. It's a good option, especially if you can't use wool. If you can use wool though, I personally prefer Caron Cakes.

Comparable Brands - 
Caron Cakes, Lion Brand Mandala, Premier Sweet Roll.
