Great design but cheap yarn

This review is for the manufacturers of this kit and NOT Mariescrosstitch who have only supplied it and of course are not responsible for the kit's contents. I am an experienced embroiderer and usually design my own work, but loved this geometric design. However the acrylic yarn is too losely woven and doesnt give a smooth finish. The yarn splits apart as soon as you start stitching. The needle supplied was size 22 but it was too small and I had to use a 24. I am now faced with either abandoning the kit or replacing all the yarn with Anchor Tapisserie, which will be quite expensive. I was initially doubtful about the acrylic yarn thinking that the finish would not be good, and I was quite right. I liked Vervaco's other geometric designs, but because they use unbranded cheap yarn, I will not be tempted.
