This is the absolute best cotton yarn--usually cotton is a little more difficult to work with, but not this stuff--it's the softest (reminds me of some of the cotton/acrylic blends) 100% cotton yarn on the market. Great handle; has a slight give and the knitted items are pretty and touchable.

Does Not Wash Well

I found this yarn in the perfect color for a shrug, and the fact that it was soooo soft and washable seemed like a plus. Unfortunately, not so. I only washed the shrug twice, and it looks like I've washed it 50 times. It was a mesh pattern, and in between the stitches you can see little strands of yarn hanging from the stitch, not to mention the fuzz balls that end up on chairs that I sit on or the clothes I wear with the shrug; so I've basically given up on wearing it altogether. I generally like Universal yarn, but not sure what makes this particular yarn look and shed so badly after washing. Just beware if you're planning to use for a garment especially.

      Couldn't find the color I wanted at my LYS. Happy to find it to knit a three-color linen stitch baby blanket. Love the depth of color and ease of use.

          This is so soft with a subtle sheen that's perfect for anything that touches your skin. I'm making a baby blanket for a friend that lives where 50 degrees is considered an arctic blast, the weight and fiber are perfect AND it's machine washable AND it's a good price.

            Comments about Universal Yarn Cotton Supreme:

            I've used this yarn in 3 different colors now for 4 projects. The Ecru and Mist were both used to make a King size cable throw for my bed. One blanket I doubled the yank which made for a great semi heavy throw and the second I used a single yank, which made for a lighter throw. I've also made a pair of knee high socks to wear around the house. Currently, I'm using the grey to make a full size cable blanket using 3 yanks per panel. This is how much I love this yarn. It doesn't fray, its washable and the dye doesn't run. It's soft and performs just as I need it to perform. The only issue I have is the shedding. However, after a wash it doesn't shed as much. Great yarn!

              I used this doubled to make a blanket for my daughter. I had read other reviews that said it shed, but I thought it couldn't be that bad. Well, it was. Everything I was wearing when I knitted with this yarn had little balls and fine threads covering it. I washed and dried it to see if that would get rid of most of the fuzz, but it was still shedding. Also, the yarn now looks rather shabby, as if it has been washed and used for a long time. I would not buy this yarn again.

                Because this cotton yarn sheds as you are working with it, I would not suggest using it. It is wonderfully soft, so it is a shame that the shedding is a real problem.

                  I love the color and softness of this yarn, but it is BY FAR the WORST yarn to roll. It takes hours to roll 1 skein because it's all twisted inside when opened up. I was going to buy another color but decided against it.

                      Purchased to crochet baby blanket. Out of 10 skeins, only 2 had knots. The yarn is so soft, it is working up perfectly.
