          I chose this cotton yarn because of its beautiful colors. I'm making sweaters for my granddaughters and they have very sensitive skin and can't wear wool. The sweaters are beautiful.

            Making a triangular shawl and love the colour way as it is being crocheted. This cotton yarn has a beautiful rich colour and drapes nicely. The cotton is wonderful for spring and summer.

            I designed a short wide hoodie and it is perfect except for two pooled spots that I tried every way I knew to eliminate; finally I was going to wear out the yarn so I quit ripping and tying on--just aaccepted it as it was. It's still beautiful yarn

                    Since I made a sweater/jacket, I used double strands. My choice, not required. Wonderful yarn, great feel and very easy to knit.

                    Great yarn with beautiful colours. The only issue I foresee is pilling/shedding, as it did a little while I was winding it into balls. Beautiful sheen and softness and will definitely use again.
