    I made a striped summer sweater using moss and blue. They look very nice together. I didn't particularly like knitting with this yarn as it is slippery, but I like the garment. I knit using the Portuguese method because that seemed to keep the tension better. Also one of the skeins had several knots, which I thought I could just knit through, but ended up ripping it out. Overall liked the yarn. I am finishing up the sweater now, so I will have to see how comfortable it is to wear in the summer.

    I bought this to knit a baby blanket and was excited to get it on a great sale. My mom specifically wanted a cotton blanket and asked for colors that weren't available in the yarn I usually use for cotton projects. So I had to find something new.
    This yarn wasn't anywhere near as soft as I would like for a baby blanket, the texture, although not coarse, wasn't very plush and it's very shiny. Just not my cup of tea. Also in ONE SKEIN of this yarn I encountered THREE knots!! In a yarn of this quality and price I would expect MUCH better than that. Ridiculous. I also had problems with it unraveling and with individual threads that had snapped throughout the yarn.
    Unfortunately, I'm stuck with it for this project although I'm unhappy with it.

              I have been using this yarn held double to make a baby blanket. It is very soft and shows the stitch definition very well. The colors are pretty and it has a nice sheen to it. Only downside I noticed was that it splits a tiny bit but it's really not bad at all. This is probably one of my favorite cotton yarns.

                  Prompt delivery arrived in good condition.

                  I have to add this about Webs.
                  If you have never been to the store, GO!I think I started drooling the minute I walked in and didn't stop until I left. I have had great experience with on line ordering and just love these people. Great prices, esp. yarn on sale, and colors on website true to color.

                    Quality cotton yarn at a great price. I have used this yarn for a variety of things including scarves, baby clothes, gloves and more. I love the way it feels when I'm knitting. . . .no shredding, splitting, etc. It's easy to pick up a pattern when interrupted. Having worked with a number of cotton yarns, this remains one of my favorites. Would recommend to others!

                      I use this yarn for almost anything. Have even used it for teaching others to knit or crochet. Easy to work with whether knitting or crocheting. Patterns are quickly established and followed. I call this "my go to yarn". Would readily recommend to others.
