I usually hate knitting with cotton yarn, but I have loved the Captiva by Berroco. It's smooth and easy to knit with, it doesn't split and hasn't been rough on my hands. It's a flat shape, which has made it fast to knit with and it stays put on my needles. I made a lovely Spring/Summer A-line shirt with lace detailing on the neck and the metallic shine on the pear color made this shirt just pop! I've had tons of compliments and several offers to purchase the top. It's gorgeous and I love the drape and shine.

I would not recommend this yarn, in spite of the fact that I found it easy to work with ONCE it was in usable form, and the finished scarf I made was lovely. Simply because all of the 4 hanks I purchased were snarled rats nests... this is AFTER I unwound, untied and laid flat... the resulting large loop was a series of intertwined loops that were impossible to separate. It took as long to untangle this mess as to knit my item. This is a yarn for looks rather than feel. Not ok for baby items. It has beautiful stitch definition and a glossy textured look. Lovely colors. No splitting, easy to spot a mistake. What a shame. 5 star yarn in 0 star form. But I would not reward Berroco for this abominable presentation by buying again.

      Currently working on the fourth garment I have knit out of this yarn. It holds it shape, doesn't pill or cling. Tremendous draping.

          Captiva was recommended for a vest I wanted to knit. It's so beautiful and drapes wonderfully. It has a pretty sheen. I couldn't wind it into a cake - it's too slippery - but that's a small price to pay for the results.

                  Although I did read other reviews that said this yarn was difficult to use due to tangling problems, other reviews loved it. I ordered 3 hank, knowing I would have to be very careful. The pattern I was using recommended this yarn. I carefully tried to work with it, but found it a tangled mess in no time. I spent 3 days untangling it and realized this yarn wasn't for me. I sent back the other two hanks.

                    The weight was perfect for the necklaces/scarfs I used it for in crocheting. The frustrating part was beginning the use as it took for ever to get it ready as it tangled and noted on its own. Needed instructions on the label for the way to put it into a ball or start the use.

                      Bought for summer cardigan in Orchid. Great color and texture but ends there. Tangles way too easily when winding on ball winder, doesn't hold ball tension. Had to restart winding several times then cut off and order another skein.
