                  This is a DK weight yarn, NOT even close to the heavy worsted described. Also the color, terra cotta? More like brown. Plain brown. I haven't used it yet, looks like it might be slightly splitty, but if you want a matte DK Weight brown yarn, go for it, but if you want an earthy orange heavy worsted, look elsewhere.

                    I knitted a sweater for a friend who is allergic to wool. Many cotton yarn feels stiff. Not so with Lovely Jeans. I was disappointed to learn this yarn was being discontinued so I was glad to find it on yarn.com.

                      I'm making the Sennen Cove Blanket in 3 differet colors, cream, navy and a denim looking blue. The yarn is very soft, easy to work with and will make a great blanket.

                      This is a good quality cotton. I did not find it splitty or hard. It has the usual qualities of cotton, so you need to choose a suitable project and swatch to find out how it will behave. Of course the ends will unravel a little, and it doesn't have any memory, but that is normal for cotton.
                      I would definitely consider buying it again to knit a cotton sweater.

                          Still a lovely yarn but it unravels if you blink at it. Definitely not a yarn I will purchase again.

                                This is labeled 4st/inch and Heavy Worsted. The packaging says 4.5-5st/in but I'd call it Light Worsted/DK. It's still a beautiful yarn but much lighter than advertised.
