Wanted an easy-care, soft cotton yarn to substitute for a yarn that the Child's sweater pattern called for (which I did not care for).
This product fit the bill! The microfiber content makes the yarn softer and less heavy than cotton. The white is beautiful - snow white. Plus, it is machine washable, which a busy mom can appreciate. Stitch definition was fantastic, and I've attached a pic of the finished Child's Beach Hoodie to illustrate same.
The only drawback is that the yarn has a tendency to split (as does most cottons), so knitting requires attention. However, this yarn is nowhere near as splitty as other cottons I've used (such as the one I was substituting)!
I would definitely use again.

I used this for a baby sweater for my granddaughter. Maybe I just didn't choose a good pattern, or good colors. I'm sure the sweater will be functional, but it just looks ordinary.

    I ordered the yarn to make a summer top. It was the recommended yarn in the summer Vogue Knitting magazine. It is so easy to work with, and the slip-stitch pattern shows up beautifully. Highly recommended!

      Like that the color is somewhat muted, not over saturated. Enjoy the feel of the yarn. Splits but nothing that can't be corrected easily. Washed the swatch and color bled a little, but now I know before I wash the finished garment . Would buy again

            I'm knitting the slipped stitch tee in the spring vogue. I was the recommended yarn. I was a little concerned because the yarn was inexpensive and sometimes cotton yarns are stretchy. Was I surprised. Great yarn, great colors and great value.

                    Actually used this yarn for fair isle work on a pair of socks. I can't say anything negative about it nor can I boast about it. Needed small amount of certain colored yarn. Socks turned out good, and the price was certainly right for my purpose. The color selection could have been better.
