A few months ago Kraemer Yarns offered me the opportunity to try their Perfection Worsted yarn. I believe I’ve knitted with Perfection Worsted once before, but I was eager to try more. Kraemer Yarns is a U.S. mill that has been open and continuously running for more than 100 years. They produce sturdy, fine quality yarns and Perfection is their easy care line – perfect for kids!
Perfection Worsted is a 70%/30% Acrylic Wool Blend and comes in 200 yd/100 gm skeins. I decided that this yarn was meant to be a sweater for my nephew who will be 3 later this year. I had my heart set on something wonderfully stripey, so I ordered 2 skeins in Marble (an oatmeal color), and 1 skein each in Puddle and Peacock (shades of turquoise and teal). I quickly settled on the Child Sophisticate pattern by Linden Down in the 4 year size. I knit my nephew one when he was a year old and he still loves it because he adores the buttons.
While Perfection Worsted is a worsted weight yarn, it feels plump to me, almost an Aran weight. I will say that when knitting the sweater I did notice that the yarn wasn’t entirely natural, but once washed the sweater softened up quite a bit and was very drapey. Because it was a small sweater and plump wool, it felt like the sweater knit up in no time. I added some fun buttons and it’s ready to go!
A special thank you to the Kraemer Yarns who sent me 4 skeins of Perfection Worsted (retail: $23.60) for free. I received no other compensation for this review. All opinions and photos are my own.
