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.

I have used this yarn many times in the past and loved it. However, the most recent batch I purchased to make a blanket for my son (25 skeins) was super knotty. At least one knot per skein, some skeins had two and even three.

            Comments about Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece:

            I have made what we call in Australia, bedspreads. Used 50 different colours, weighs about 50 Kgs, fits Queen Bed to floor. Used a flower motif, mixing colours. Have also used Brown Sheep for a ripple crotcheted Afghan, Queen size. I use a 4.00 hook, like my stitches tight. Holds the shape well. Other people have said they are not sure about washing, I use front loader and all turns out well in the end. Xx

              Comments about Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece:

              I just love this yarn! The price is great when you are knitting multi colored projects and need a "little bit of this and a little bit of that" color, so I can keep within my budget. The biggest complain I have is that Webs doesn't carry enough colors of this wonderful yarn. There is alot of yardage per skein, and it would be so nice if Webs would carry more of a color selection.

                This yarn is great for young ones who tend to run warm. And there is just enough wool to keep the knitting from hurting wrists and hands.
