    This yarn is soft and has a good shine to it. The stitches show very well and the pattern is clear and nice.
    I tried this yarn for a doily, and it did not look as nice.

    Pretty colors and nice sheen to the product so it looks like linen yarn. Not sure how it'll be after washing.

      Comments about true Provence:

      Love this yarn. The yarn is a great weight, but the skein is very very small. Yarn is died well and no random knots in the center of the skein. Holds together well, but a lighter weight so it takes a while to knit/crochet together. Egyptian cotton is slightly sateen and soft, but machine washable. Made a jacket for my 4 year old nephew. This is perfect because he's hot natured and this yarn is light enough to keep him from getting too hot, but enough to keep him from freezing.

      Always love Classic Elite yarns, will buy anything from them. Good quality and reasonable prices.

          I've knit an adult sweater and a couple of baby sweaters with this yarn, which is a nice weight for spring and fall. The color choices are what drew me to it and I wasn't disappointed.

            Comments about true Provence:

            I used this yarn to knit my granddaughter a light, soft blanket, she hates heavy, bulky afghans, I will never knit or crochet with any other yarn. It does show some imperfections in the knitting but it is worth the extra time spent to make the item you want.

                I love this yarn. It has a nubby texture and unique color, like nothing i've ever handled. I haven't figured out what to make from it, but I love it so much, I'm just keeping my eyes open to see what it will become. After practicing a few crochet stitches, i cannot wait to work with it.

                This cotton yarn is soft, so easier than other cotton yarns on the hands when knitting. Excellent stitch definition on cables. Plys can split when working but despite this, I still loved working with this yarn

                Lovely colors

                By 

                from Dalton, MA

                Comments about true Provence:

                This lovely cotton yarn comes in a nice selection of colors. It compares favorably to the similar Online Linie 12 Clip, or the Tahki cotton that used to come in 1000-yard-plus cones. Only one problem: in my current project, using 8 skeins, 2 skeins included 4 knots apiece. Given the lacy nature of the pattern, I would have preferred no knots at all. The yarn is slightly splitty, but that hasn't been a problem on Addi turbo needles.
