        I use this yarn for all my baby knit and crochet items. The colors pop once you get them out of the skein. My favorite yarn.

          Knitting up beautifully into a summer cardigan for my mother. I had hoped the addition of wool would alleviate the hand pain I get when knitting with cotton, but it doesn't.

              Yarn worked up beautifully; however, the last of the 8 skeins were shorted. I could not finish the baby blanket until you sent some more.

                  First time using this yarn. Needed a real black black, got the perfect color. Easy to knit with. Yarn came out of skein without a struggle.

                      I am using this yarn in a baby blanket. It is working up great and I think the finished product will be something I am proud of. I am glad I stumbled upon this yarn.

                      I ordered this yarn to make a cowl for spring. It is soft and has the cotton feel to it and you can not tell that there is wool in it. I love the brightness of the coral color. I did not have the shedding problem that the other reviewer had and I knitted and reknitted the same skein several times (I make my own patterns). It would be great for baby items! I would have given this product 5 stars but it is listed as a worsted weight and it's more along the lines of a sport or fingerling.
