      Balls are small so lots of ends to weave in, but the yarn isn't slippery so it weaves in well. Quite a thick yarn for a cotton, but it's so soft and is dyed beautifully so makes a lovely lace pattern and is soft and pretty in stocking stitch. It would be good for a non wool sweater - I'm making the Hooded Eyelet Vest by Fiona Ellis and it's just perfect so far. I'm thinking of buying more, to make a lace skirt as it seems to be a substantial yarn.

        Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Mesa:

        I'm crocheting a summer-weight afghan with this yarn. Due to fabric sensitivities, I only work with cotton yarn. This is the softest and easiest to work with cotton yarn I've used. Many cotton yarns have colors that look flat - the gentle heathering of these colors adds just enough shading to the piece. I'm working in four colors, and they combine beautifully. My only complaint is that I wish there were a few more colors to choose from.

                    I really enjoyed working with the yarn. Very soft so Mesa works up nicely. Also I used color 4278 (brown) for my new grandsons baby blanket, the color shading looks great.

                    The yarn packaged nicely and arrived in a timely manner.

                    Good Summerweight Cotton

                      Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Mesa:

                      Purchased this from my LYS, not WEBS. It knits in a gauge similar to worsted wool. It is difficult to find an "interesting" cotton, but the tone-on-tone subtle shading provides a winning combination.
