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.

a little too rigid

I bought this online in hopes that it would show off the stitch work in a scarf pattern. I used the gauge guide and the finished result didn't live up to the promise....Read complete review

        I'm crocheting a Summer Snood and wanted 100% cotton. The yarn is PERFECT. I love the amazing green color. I love the texture. It's pure joy to work with. Not one drawback. I couldn't be more pleased.

        Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Mesa:

        I AM MAKING MY GRANDDAUGHTER A SUMMER TOP.

        THE COLOR IS SUBTLE YELLOW. ALAS, WHEN I NEED TO FROG IT,
        IT RESPONDS KINDLY, WITHOUT SHOWING IT HAS ALREADY BEEN THERE.

        MY FIRST COTTON PROJECT, I WAS SURPRISED HOW FIRM IT IS,
        NOT SOFT AND YIELDING. SO, NOW I KNOW COTTON.

        Cons

          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.
