I purchased this yarn to knit a summer blanket for my full sized bed. What initially attracted me to the yarn were the colors and the price; I had fallen in love with some Rowan yarn colorways that were prohibitively expensive for a large project like a blanket. The subtlety of the palette and the slight heathering of the colors gives this yarn a more natural look than many acrylic blends, and at more than 200 yds per ball, it is certainly economical.

It handles much like plied merino yarn (e.g. Berocco Pure Merino); that is, it is a dream to work with. Soft and springy, it does not tire my hands like some cottons do. It also does not have the squeaky plasticky feel that some synthetics do. Also, it is not at all shiny like some synthetics. Can you tell I don't care for synthetics? That said, I love this yarn.

It has a nice drape - the cotton gives it decent body while the acrylic softens. It knits up fast and I have had no trouble with splitting. I have not yet washed this yarn, so I cannot speak to the results of machine-washing.

I think this yarn would be great for babies' and children's' sweaters and blankets.

I selected this yarn for a sweater I am knitting for my grandmother. The description "It's nice and light which is great to work with and wear in the warmer months. It's machine washable and easy to care for!" sounded perfect to me.

It is very easy to knit with, but it does not feel nice at all - very coarse. There is no comfy softness to this yarn and I can't think of it being appropriate for anything other than dish towels.

I'm left disappointed.

    I choose this yarn to mix with another yarn for an afghan. It was easy to knit with and provided the texture I wanted. It is a very good yarn.

              Comments about 7.29 DungarEASE:

              After knitting for everyone else (afghans, baby sweaters, mittens, hats, etc.), I decided to knit something for myself; a sweater that I had made once before, but with yarn bought at a "big box" store. This yarn is a true pleasure to work with. It is soft and the gauge for my project is perfect. I can't wait to finish it and know by the feel of it, that the yarn will last for a long time without "pilling" or getting out of shape.

                I have started to use yarn that is plant-based, and this was a soft, colorful yarn that knit up very well.

                      I made a baby sleep sack for a newborn. This yarn was soft and offered enough stretch. It held its shape well after washing and drying.
