Some things to keep in mind:
Yarn that is made at different times, will be slightly different colors. That's just the nature of yarn. To avoid having a visible place where you joined a new skein, you can alternate skeins when you join a new one - do a few rows with the first skein, then a few rows with the second, for awhile.
All monitors are different, so there's no way to show you a 100% accurate picture of the colors of yarn. Amazon's colors are quite accurate on my screen, though.
This is a worsted weight yarn, but it's on the thicker side of worsted weight, more like aran weight. This is what makes it great for amigurumi, in my opinion, since those need to be dense. But if you're making something that needs to be a specific size, check your gauge first. Some colors of RHSS are thinner than others, so again, check your gauge.
If it's splitting a lot, you may be pulling the yarn in the wrong direction. RHSS is wound to be pulled from the center. On the label, it has an "A" and a "B" with arrows. On the side labeled "A", make sure the outside strand of the yarn is out of the skein. Sometimes it's worked its way out before the yarn gets to you, but you may have to pull it out. On the side labeled "B", you need to find the other end of the yarn that's in the center of the skein. Pull that out, and knit/crochet from that side. If you did that and it's still splitting a lot, it's possible the label came off somewhere along the way and was put back on upside-down - try putting the center strand back in the middle, and pulling it out through the other end.
The multi colored skeins are smaller (in amount of yarn) than the solid colored skeins.
RHSS is a bit course/stiff at first, but it softens up nicely after a wash.
If you keep these things in mind, you'll have a great experience with Red Heart Super Saver!
Other colors I bought are Pool, Denim, Gold, Hunter Green, Guava, Lavender, and Oatmeal. They all pretty much resemble the photo. The quality and gauge are pretty consistent among these colors.
Super Saver is not the best yarn to make finer knit garment and accessories because it is not silky soft (Red Heart Soft and With Love are better suited). However, to practice and to make blankets these skeins are great. I like them better than the similar yarn from Caron.
