Review Product Received

Back in March, Mary Maxim sent me two types of lovely yarn to try. The first type of yarn I shared with you was the Mary Maxim Ultra Mellowspun DK yarn and you can read more about it in my full review here: Crochet Yarn Talk – Mary Maxim Ultra Mellowspun DK I designed a free crochet pattern you can use with this yarn and the free pattern is linked in the review post. The second type of yarn I received was Simply Casual Yarn.

Simply Casual Yarn, is a Super Bulky [6] yarn. It is super soft and beautiful to work with. The yarn is a 50/50 mixture of cotton and acrylic fibers. I created a short video to show you how the yarn more clearly and a free pattern for you to try with this yarn. Simply Casual Yarn is currently available in 6 pretty shades: Cream, Fieldstone, Wild Rose, Sage, Stonewash and Straw. Crochet Yarn Talk - Simply Casual Yarn - Mary Maxim

I began designing a pretty pattern with this yarn back in April and in order to finish it the way I wanted, I decided to order 2 more balls of the yarn. I totally love the softness and feel of the Simply Casual yarn and I’d love to use it for other projects too. I full soft blanket would be gorgeous and I am also thinking it will make excellent chemo caps – being perfectly soft and breathable.

The softness of this yarn makes this small shawl a perfect summertime accessory. With it’s easy care instructions and the reasonable price point for this cotton/acrylic blend, I definitely recommend Mary Maxim’s Simply Casual Yarn.  It took 4 balls of yarn to crochet the Simply Casual Small Shawl. The finished shawl has a nice weight and is soft and breathable. You can wear this shawl everyday – it is comforting to wear and casually pretty.

I would like to thank Mary Maxim for sending me these free samples of their Simply Casual Yarn and introducing me to a new yarn I really love!

  1. I’ve never tried Mary Maxim yarn as I don’t buy yarn on the internet. I’m really afraid I wouldn’t be happy with it and then stuck. It does look like nice yarn and your pattern is flattering for the yarn 🙂

  2. Hi Jennifer, I haven’t tried Stitch Studio before. I did get to try I Love this Yarn though and it was so lovely and soft to work with. My friend Amy (The Stitchin’ Mommy) mailed me some from the States. All the best, Rhondda

  3. I recently started using Mary Maxim yarns. I haven’t been disappointed. My favorite yarn is Stitch Studio By Nicole Classic, with I Love This Yarn a close second. What do you thing of these?
