Delightful Cotton

By TrippGal

from Seattle, WA

Pros

  • Long Color Shifts
  • Supple Fiber

Cons

    Best Uses

      I have knitted a number of asymmetric shawls with this yarn and I adore it. Not a normal "cotton" fan I was gifted my first skein and hesitant at first. But the colors are incredibly beautiful and the yarn is a joy to work with. The last pattern included P2TBL, K2Tog, KFB and I didn't have a problem, but others complain they can't do those stitches. Secret is keep your tension medium to medium-loose because the cotton doesn't give like wool and can feel "draggy" on wood needles.

      Love this yarn

      By Activegramma

      from Long Beach,CA

      Pros

      • Good For Summer Shawls
      • Love the colors
      • Not splitty

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Shawls
        • Summer Baby Items
        • Summer Scarves
        • Summer Sweaters

        I have made the most beautiful crochet shawl with this yarn and have started another. I am not giving these away. They are mine. I can't say this would knit up, up for crocheting I really like it.

        Pretty and Soft

        By Sheilamarie

        from Naperville, IL

        Pros

        • Soft
        • Soft easy to work with

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • Just about anything

          I make scarves and shawls for other people. I am constantly on the look out for good cotton, many people do not like wool. This is a lovely cotton yarn that knits up beautifully. I would caution you to make sure you look at the enlarged photo because the main pictures usually don't show all the colors.

          Make sure you check all pictures of each color!

          By Shutterbug

          The initial posted product pics here (the close-up shots) do not show all the color bands in each skein; to see those, click the 'zoom' button on each product thumbnail (the magnifying glass in the corner of each product image). Every colorway has a second pic posted with its full color spectrum, which is visible when the 'zoom' button launches a new window. It's like each one has a surprise!

          Pretty....

          By Shrub

          from The World

          Pros

          • Texture

          Cons

            Best Uses

              The yarn is quite soft and silky. I just wanted to not that the Peach Sunrise doesn't show the streak of darker aquamarine that is in it which I think sets off the apricot color better than the picture shows.

              Nice - super fine, but color is unexpect

              By CJ

              from Littlestown, PA

              Pros

              • Nice feel
              • Nice Feel Soft
              • Soft

              Cons

                Best Uses

                  Making a shawl/scarf with this. Just started but I think it will be lovely. It's a very soft cotton, and knits up well. The color is crazy, though. I ordered "peach ocean" which shows on the page as cream & peach, but when I received it, the primary color is a turquoise! It's pretty - not what I wanted - but I'll use it anyway.
