      I purchased this yarn to make an all season cable sweater for my brother who lives in Denver. This was the first time I knitted with organic cotton or a cotton wool blend and I was nervously intrigued. I found it was as soft as many wools and offered the great stitch definition cotton yarns are known for. The color was great. I bought this in 'natural' for my brother, and I'm already contemplating what color I'll buy for knitting a guernsey sweater for myself. I was so enthusiastic about this yarn I knitted it by candlelight for the 6 nights we were without power thanks to Hurricane Irene. My biggest issue was thinking that certain skeins looked like different shades when knitted. The fears faded when I washed and blocked parts of the sweater as I went along. (Could have done without that anxiety.) I also should have bought more yarn because the sweater cables chewed up alot more yarn than I anticipated. Nevertheless my brother has received so many compliments on the finished sweater, and he says it has become his "go to" sweater.

      Great colour, nice feel but twists

      The pros are almost not enough to make up for the yarn twisting -- I need to untwist at the beginning of every row. Very annoying. Wouldn't buy again.

        Great for sweaters in the new CEY book. Soft and easy to work with. Love the colors; makes it hard to choose. Only con would be that I hand wound the skeins and they have a tendency to tangle. Made two sweaters with two different colors and they both came out terrific.

            I can't imagine why this yarn is being dropped; it is wonderful. Perfect for in-between weather, beautiful colors, and so lovely to knit with. I'm looking for other projects to use this with before it disappears.

              I used this yarn to knit a shower gift of a baby hat with a leaf design. The lacey pattern looked beautiful with this yarn! I washed it before I gifted it and there was minimal shrinkage. Perfect combination of fibers. I liked it so much I also bought 2 other colors to use in the future.

                  I've only worn the sweater I made with this yarn a few times, but so far there is NO sign of felting or pilling and it has maintained beautiful stitch definition despite the rubbing of seat belts and heavy bags, backpacks, etc. LOVE IT!
