Love, Love, LOVE this yarn. The price is right and the sheen is amazing! I've used this yarn for literally hundreds of projects. The only thing is that the website says the sett is 12-18, but it's really 20 if you're looking for a tight weave. So keep that in mind when planning your warp length!I always use a 10 dent reed with this yarn.

I am a professional clothing weaver, and I use a lot of cotton in my weaving. With the decline of mill ends in the US I have turned to this product as a reliable source for 5/2 cotton in certain colors - particularly black.
Although I love the feel and the sheen of this yarn, at times I have gotten cones that are riddled with snags, knots, and uneven twists. It doesn't happen too often, but when it does it is a real pain - especially if I am measuring out warp! For the price I could wish there was a bit more quality control...... then I would rate this yarn at four or maybe five stars.

    This product worked up nicely. Since the product is cotton I'll look forward to wearing the top in warm weather. I'm so pleased I'll most likely order more to make up more items. Nice product, great results!

          I use this lightweight cotton for most of my online custom crocheted dresses and tops.
          The most frustrating thing with this yarn is the color chart. I haven't been able to use any of yhe yarn I order in a particular color because it is absolutely nothing like the color chart. I use your yarn in white only and you've had it bback ordered for months.

              I use this for tablet weaving so it stands up to a lot of abrasion by the cards. Nice sheen too. Great color selection to choose from.

                      Purchased this as warp for a series of scarf classes I'm teaching this summer. It's a good weight and weaves up fast.

                        I purchased this yarn to make towels. I did not look close and found it was mercerized. But I am glad I missed this because I thought all mercerized cottons were stiff and not absorbent. Boy was I wrong. This yarn is very soft and will work very well for kitchen towels. I am so very glad I purchased 10 pounds. I love the very BRIGHT colors.
