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.

I bought this yarn to make a summer sleeveless sweater. I ordered deep lavender and the color is blue. It's a pretty blue and I'm keeping it, but it's definitely not lavender. I'm just on the first side and so far it seems to be coming out quite nice. My only complaint is that although it's cotton, the feel is kind of stiff, and it isn't soft. It may not feel that good next to the skin. It does show off the detail of stitches nicely though.

    I used this yarn to crochet a pot holder as a Christmas gift for a friend. Very easy to work with - I am a knitter, so not that much experience with crochet. I am considering it for a lightweight sweater. Very nice product.

        My first cotton knit sweater. I knit a gansey pattern which turned out well but I learned cotton is heavier then wool and drapes different. WEBS was wonderful for sending me the exact dye lot to match when I needed to acquire one more skein.

          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.
