      I live in the Pacific Northwest in a very temperate climate, so Cotton Fleece is a perfect weight to wear many months of the year. I especially like it for sweaters for my husband as it is not shiny like many cotton yarns. Knits and drapes well - great yarn.

      I used the product to make a Vogue design. A tunic. I do not like the heavy feel of the fiber and feel the fiber is not well matched to the pattern. I do not like the matte finish of the fiber, it makes the light blue look dull.

          Comments about Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece:

          I love cotton fleece for how it works up and flows through my hands. However, I was spoiled by long time ago by their very bright colorways in this yarn and was disappointed to learn they no longer make the "brights" as bright. Evidently color bleed with cotton was an issue for some people, even though not for me.
          However, that being said, this is a really nice yarn and I'm glad I got it.

          Service and delivery comments:

          ordered yarn and it was here in a fraction of the time I expected it to take, well-packaged and prompt!
          price was competitive by all means

            The drapability is more than expected. I do not care for the feel of the yarn on the needles, but the knitted sweater is comforting to the touch.

                    Since I can't wear wool anymore I am always looking for alternative yarns. Black Sheep Cotton Fleece is a great weight and feel. Knits up great and looks great.

                        I have used this brand for amigurmi, and I love how tightly it chrochets. The yarn does not split much, and the cotton-wool blend is very sturdy. It holds a shape very well. It does pill some. I've used it for a toy for a toddler that is still in near pristine shape, eight months after Christmas.

                            I am using this yarn to make a prayer sweater for my sister-in-law suffering a relapse of non-Hodgkins lymphoma. I wanted to make something for her to wear during the spring and summer that would be warm enough to ward off the chill of chemotherapy but cool enough for summer temps. Brown Sheep cotton fleece is the only cotton I will work with. I can't get enough of the drape and visual reflectiveness of this cotton yarn. The sweater is nearly done and I am not disappointed. Think glorious drape and luscious hand. Thank you Brown Sheep Wool Company for your fine product. I feel certain my sister-in-law will love the fiber and each prayer stitch that makes it a wearable prayer.
