    Softee Chunky Yarn 400g/300g (Formerly Bernat Chunky) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best versatile chunky yarn I have used this yarn before for a beautiful shawl. It works up nicely, and has a nice feel to it. I bought this order of yarn to make a pet bed for a friend's cat. The pattern recommended this yarn, and I know the cat bed will be perfect when it's finished. I highly recommend this yarn for any project using a chunky yarn.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed Calling this yarn chunky is a misnomer. Found it to be more light worsted and in some areas DK. Numerous knots and a considerable amount of frayed spots, which had to be cut out. The price was reasonable but the quality poor. Have used Bernat Chunky many times, in the past, but this revision can not compare to the original.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So soft and plush. Made the Azel pullover in gray for a friend with this yarn and she loves it. Also bought enough in teal to make one for myself.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Softee Chunky Lovely yarn, works up beautifully, best with bamboo or steel hook v. plastic, slightly fluffier/hairier than expected.

    Hi, what happened to all the pretty colors Softee Chunky used to come in? There used to be yellows, greens, pinks, burgundys and ombres. These colors are plain, masculine and dull. I love working with Softee chunky, but these colors aren't appealing.

    Asked by: Anonymous71
    Hi. You are looking at the large ball of Bernat Softee Chunky, it is a limited shade range of the most popular colors. The regular ball size still has all of the bright fun shades. http://www.yarnspirations.com/yarn/softee-chunky.html?id=164485

    Not sure of your question, but if you are asking yards to grams - the 400 gram skein equals 431 yards. Hope this helps/answers your question.
