I like it

By Melissa

from Philadelphia PA

Pros

  • Rich Colors
  • Sturdy

Cons

    Best Uses

      This yarn seems like it would be stiff at first glance and touch, but once you start working with it it becomes soft. I'm currently using it to make a light tank top and at first I thought it wouldn't work well, but now I'm excited to say that this yarn works great. I bought the colorful mix one and working it up it looks almost like tie dye. I do wish there was a rainbow one though.

      The link I provided for accessories made is the link to the person who created the slide tank top pattern which I'm currently making with this yarn.

      Nice, but feels like DMC floss

      By Hiccupz

      from North Carolina

      Pros

      • ALL COTTON
      • Easy to work with

      Cons

      • Slightly slippery
      • Somewhat Shiny
      • ugly color scheme

      Best Uses

      • Socks

      I used this yarn for socks. I like 100% cotton yarns because synthetic fibers make my feet sweat. These say they're 100% cotton but they don't really feel like it. It feels like DMC floss but doesn't split as easily. It's pretty easy to work with and it's fun to watch the color scheme work through even though I got the orange/purple/gray one and it's a lot uglier than I expected. There's also much less yarn in the skein than I expected, but enough for a pair of socks.
