    Great yarn

    I'm on my second blanket crocheted using this yarn, and it's great. The colors are wonderful and I love the weight.

    I bought this yarn for a sweater but ended up using it on a shawl. It was very slippery and I had trouble winding it as the yarn kept falling off the ball in my hand. I tried using KnitPicks Acrylic needles for a little resistance but the yarn split terribly. I then tried KP's Harmony (wood) but still no luck. I then went with KP's nickel needles as these are the sharpest needles I have, and it was better but the yarn was so slippery that it was quite a challenge keeping the stitches on the needles. I finally gave up. I love the sheen the yarn has, and the weight is great, but I found it very difficult and frustrating to work with. Because the yarn definition was so good, it hid nothing and each split stich was so obvious. I was constantly going back and fixing split stitches I probably will not use this yarn, or maybe I'll use it in conjunction with another yarn for a bulky coverlet.

        At last a cotton I can knit with. I love cotton but have had a lot of problems with it in the past. This yarn is perfect. shows great stitches and is easy to work with. I am making a sweater and have breezed right through it. the price is right as well. I have compared it to the other new cottons with nylon and this still is the best. Don't be afraid to buy it. I can also see it being used for baby items.

            Great yarn - I used this to crochet a baby blanket and it came out very expensive looking, neat and even (versus using only acrylic or wool yarn). I chose it because of its washability and softness, but it looks fabulous too!

              Wow, at last a cotton blend that doesn't split like other products. I found this yarn easy to handle , makes great looking stitch's and is very soft. I have abandoned most patterns which call for cotton because my gauge was always off, it was heavy and constantly split. have big plans for future projects with this yarn

                This yarn works great for summer vests that can go into the washer and dryer with no problem. Yarn doesn't have much memory so choose patterns accordingly.

                I used the Terra Cotta color to knit the While Sangria sleeveless top by Baby Cocktails and I loved both the knitting process and the final product. The yarn knits evenly and the resulting fabric is heavy enough to provide good coverage in a top like this. I found one knot in the three skeins I used and noticed that it does sometimes knot itself if one doesn't monitor it. I would definitely use this yarn again.

                  The combo of acrylic and cotton makes this an exceptional summer weight yarn. It holds its shape and has a bit of shine. Stitches are well-defined. Pattern called for size 7 US; I stepped up to US8 to get gauge I would buy this yarn again.

                  I like the color but I don't like that the yarn 'unwinds' when knitting. The plies come apart making mistakes that have to be corrected all the time. Will see how the finished garment looks.
