Love this yarn. I have not knit with cotton for a while. I am knitting Chleuh sweater pattern from Verena Magazine --Spring 2011. It is working up beautifully. Using Charcoal main color and indigo blue(kinda navy), cornflower(bright beautiful color) and linen white for fair isle part of pattern. This yarn is not stiff or dry like some cottons. Very easy to work with. I will buy more.

Love cotton,but

Truthfully, this was a close out purchase. I've never had this problem with full price purchases of Tachi yarns. With the use of the embroidery wax most of the spliting was resolved.

    The color selection is fantastic!!!! I made the Thaki "Spring Break Trapeze Tank." I have four different colors of this yarn. I just love it. I can find no problems with this yarn. I would have a lot of every color I could.

        I am using this yarn to make a mild weather scarf for my father. As he already has a pure alpaca scarf, he needs a lighter counterpart for cool rather than frigid weather.

        A terrific yarn, beautiful colors, machine washable, and easy to crochet, though you do have to pay some attention so that you do not split the yarn. I have finished a hat, working on a shawl, and future projects with this yarn include another hat and a cover-up.

                This yarn lives up to its name. It is lite and classic. I live in a warm climate and need garments that are lite. I made a sweater and it was intricate in some parts. THis yarn was very smooth and easy to work with.

                    Comments about Tahki Yarns Cotton Classic Lite:

                    I really like this yarn so far. Only about 20% done knitting a baby hat. I like the texture and how the stitches pop (wish I was knitting cables to see how that would work). I wouldn't say it's soft but that may change with washing and wearing. I am not a very experienced knitter and my knowledge of yarn weight is minimal but I would say this was Sport weight. Does anybody agree?
                    That being said, I will buy this yarn again.

                    The yarn works well for lightweight children' sweaters.

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    Good customer service. I received an email asking if I wanted 2 different dye lots or if I wanted to wait for a back order.

                      Using this yarn to make a cardigan sweater for a gift and I'm very pleased with its performance so far. It is light weight so that the cardigan can be worn both summer and winter without extra weight. This is my first time using it and I will use it again for other projects!
