Caron Colorama O’GO Review & Giveaway

Today, I am here with a Caron Colorama O’GO Yarn Review & Giveaway.  I got mine in the colorway First Blush and I got an extra one for a giveaway (see details below)! Sorry, I had to repost this because it was somehow deleted.

According to their website:

“Caron Colorama is a bulky weight acrylic striping yarn, perfect for creating bold colorblocked projects. The added bonus of the innovative O’Go format allows for quick-start, tangle-free stitching. Easily separate out the different colors to use in whatever order you choose, or you simply stitch straight through the shades as they are. Shades are pre-coordinated and the tangle-free O’Go format makes Caron Colorama perfect for both new and experienced stitchers.”

Value:

The Caron Colorama O’GO Yarn is $8.99 for 228 yards and I think this is a great price. It is 100% Acrylic. And you get a lot of yarn in a cool new format and with fun color combinations.

Feel/Aesthetics:
Overall, this is a pretty soft acrylic yarn and it is what you would expect from any acrylic yarn. It does get a bit fuzzy as you knit it, but there is no shedding or splitting. As I mentioned, I am super excited about many of the colorways available in the O’GO format and will definitely be getting more to try. The colors are very vibrant and unique. However, one problem is that given the unique colorways, it is something I would want to put on display. The giant donut shape makes it difficult to display.



Thoughts While Knitting:

Going back to the description on their website, if you simply stitch straight through the shades as they are, then I highly recommend this yarn. It really does make the knitting process easier. You don’t need to pull the yarn as you are knitting. My major issue is that many of the patterns on Yarnspirations require you to pull the sections apart. They say that the sections can be easily separated from each other, but I didn’t always find that to be the case. When you do separate them, the sections physically come apart from each other. However, you aren’t limited to the order that the yarn comes in and can easily find the point where the new color starts and separate it. Keep in mind, this creates multiple skeins of different colors that you have to keep track of. You can see in the picture below, the first time I didn’t understand how to separate the sections and ended up having to ball up the blue section.

Another note I have is that some of the sections are tied together. At first, I thought they all would be like this, but actually some of the them are continuous and others are tied together. Once again, this would only be an issue for me if I am knitting straight through the sections as they are. But it does make it easier to separate the sections if that is how you are planning to use it.

Overall:

I think this yarn is a very fun concept and the price is quite reasonable. The colors are very fun and the yarn is soft. This is yarn I would definitely buy again for certain projects (where I will be using it as a continuous strand), but it wouldn’t be my go-to. If I were to rate it, I would give it 3.5/5.
