If you’ve been following me for a while, you may be aware of the fact that I absolutely adore WeCrochet’s Brava Worsted Weight yarn line. I use it ALOT. It’s a fantastic acrylic yarn, it’s an amazing price and it comes in 55 different colours! I love it. Just when I thought I couldn’t love it anymore, WeCrochet launches their new Brava Worsted Speckle and they sent me some to check it out. Obviously, that means I’m going to share my findings with you all so that means it’s time for a yarn review!
This yarn was provided to me free of charge in exchange for my honest review.

I was sent the Cake Pop Speckle and Snow Day Speckle colourways of the new Brava Worsted Speckle line and I loved the colours right away. I was also sent some co-ordinating colourways that would work with the Brava Speckle colours that I received. I got Celestial to go with the Snow Day Speckle and Cornflower to go with the Cake Pop Speckle. They look fantastc together and there are lots of other colours that would work with these. I personally like a combination of Celestial, Clarity and Sky mixed with the Snow Day Speckle and Rouge, Cornflower and Freesia with the Cake Pop Speckle.
The Brava Speckle works up like a dream, just like regular Brava Worsted Weight Yarn. No splitting, soft and lush. It just reminds me why this is one of my favourite acrylic yarns to use. But how do the speckles look worked up? This is a big question for many crocheters because the effects of speckles and other coloureffect yarns, don’t always translate in the same way in crochet as they do with knitting. Many a times have I tried a yarn I fell in love with in a knit swatch only to be disappointed with how my crochet swatches worked up. Below you’ll see my swatches working with the Cake Pop Speckle and Snow Day Speckle. I started my swatches with a few rows of single crochet then a few rows of half double crochet and ending with the double crochet stitch.
Both swatches worked up beautifully and I love the way the speckles show up in the swatch. I think they translate well for crocheting because the speckles themselves are longer and more like mini streaks of colour. This helps the colour work with the bulkier nature of crochet and still give you those gorgeous pops of colour you want with a speckle yarn. I loved this yarn so much, I started a design with the Cake Pop Speckle the day it arrived and I can’t wait to share it with you soon.
