I made a lot of laced sweaters out of this yarn. It does not stretch, does not pill, does not fade, does not split. It knits like a song, wears nicely and does not lose its shape. I find it hard to let the yarn out of my hands when I knit.

bright colors, not especially soft

I'm using this for a baby blanket. I love the colors, but if I'd gone to a store, I would have picked a softer yarn for this project.

    Using 4 skeins of 5 colors to make gradient shawl. I'm on the final color and have had no knots in any skein. The colors are rich and even through the skein. The yarn is soft and easy to knit.

              When knit up the yarn has a soft sheen which shows off the colors to the max. This yarn shows stitch pattern better than other cotton yarn. I love it.

                Absolutely my favorite cotton and has been for many years. The color palette is exceptional. Use for summer shawls and lots of baby sweaters and hats ... It is machine washable and tumble dry too, on low setting. Try knitting a swatch or two and then washing and drying before you make your garment. You will pleasantly surprised.

                This yarns was coarse enough to showcase the crochet stitching and add stability to the summer top. When my project was completed, I was pleased to see that there was enough "give" to allow the summer top to drape perfectly with a custom looking fit.

                  Made a beautiful summer sweater - feels cool but nice weight and drapes well. Used Tahki Stacy Chrles Free Nautical boatneck pullover pattern altered in length and made sleeves without yarn and enlarged the sleeve width. I also did in stripes. Beautiful!

                    The plastic mailing envelope was hard to pull open, so I used scissors -- MISTAKE !! -- the yarn was unprotected by other packaging and I cut it by accident.
