Wonderful to crochet with. Not at all splitty, glides over your hook, sturdy thread will stand up to machine washing so perfect for table linens. Unfortunately this color is always backordered!! 3 times I ordered it, and 3 times it was backordered.

    Comments about Tahki Yarns Cotton Classic:

    I am in process of knitting a summmer Aran-motif sweater that I had created before in another yarn that I became dissatisfied with. This yarn is a lighter weaight, and knits smoothly and easily on US 5 needles. it has excellent stitch definition, and has minimal fuzzing. It is very soft, and has a comfortable casual drape, at least while in process. My gauge, before and after blocking a stockinette test swatch was 11 st, 16 r to 2 in. Unfortunately the color selection is not to my taste, or I would buy more.

        I find no fault with the yarn, so far. I'm in the early stages of the sweater I'm working on, since I work on 3 projects at a time. It doesn't appear to fuzz or pill so far.

        The yarn has a dressy sheen.

                  The color was bright and sheen was very beautiful for a cotton yarn. I will purchase more in different colors since I have several young children I can knit for and children generally do not like wools. Also for California cotton is best.

                      I bought the Cotton Classic to use for weaving projects. The colors are vibrant; fiber is pliable. The cotton does not fray with repeated heddle movement.

                      I haven't found any "cons" so far and don't think I will. It's a great product.
