Attack Of The Clones: Review: Aunt Lydia’s Crochet Thread, Gold/Gold

Summery:

This products is simple to use, the color is a dark mat gold with a metallic gold thread accent. The product is good quality and is what you would expect from a crochet thread, the only con is with a lot of unraveling the gold metallic thread comes away from the base thread.

Products Pros:

  • Easily accessible
  • Affordably ($3.50, roughly)
  • Easy to use
  • Color seems accurate to movie

Products Cons:

  • Metallic Thread comes unwound with a lot of unraveling so if you need to restart your project several times this can be an issue.

Review:

Using Aunt Lydia’s Crochet Thread in Gold/Gold, is simple and very much like using any other crochet thread. The only complaints that can be maid about using the thread is that if you have to unravel your crochet several time, (3 or more) then the metallic gold thread will start unwinding from the old gold colored crochet thread base. This makes it more difficult to have a nice finished look and the metallic thread can get tangled on the hook and makes it difficult to crochet. However, if you don’t have to unravel your crochet thread, multiple times, it seems to be fine. The crochet thread is affordable and for the purposes of making Padmé’s bun covers only one skein is required. Be advised, while crocheting the thread can get twisted so much that it starts twisting in on itself, however, this seems to be more of a problem with the technique of crocheting instead of a product defect.

Star Wars Application:

Aunt Lydias Crochet Thread is a grate option for making Padme’s meadow picnic bun covers. The color is a dark gold/yellow with metallic gold thread running through it much like the thread used in the movies.

Note: working with this thread is fairly simple, however, it is important to know that unraveling the project a lot will cause the metallic thread to come away from the gold/yellow base. Also note that this thread will wind up on itself.
