Wanted an easy-care, soft cotton yarn to substitute for a yarn that the Child's sweater pattern called for (which I did not care for).
This product fit the bill! The microfiber content makes the yarn softer and less heavy than cotton. The white is beautiful - snow white. Plus, it is machine washable, which a busy mom can appreciate. Stitch definition was fantastic, and I've attached a pic of the finished Child's Beach Hoodie to illustrate same.
The only drawback is that the yarn has a tendency to split (as does most cottons), so knitting requires attention. However, this yarn is nowhere near as splitty as other cottons I've used (such as the one I was substituting)!
I would definitely use again.

I used this for a baby sweater for my granddaughter. Maybe I just didn't choose a good pattern, or good colors. I'm sure the sweater will be functional, but it just looks ordinary.

          This particular summer sweater that I am making does not require any accessories to knit the item; just a comfortable pair of needles that you like.

                I have not used this yet but it seems to be nice yarn. However the color is much different than portrayed on the website.

                  Have made several sweaters for newborns to about 4 years old. Good selection of colors in this yarn ( pale pink, fuchsia, white, periwinkle blue and others ) when it was in production. Now that it has been discontinued, not much one can say.

                  Not a colour for older people, would probably be better for a child - quite harsh

                      I just looked up this yarn to recommend to a friend. I was horrified to see that it is discontinued! I just finished a blanket with it, and it is so very lovely. Guess I'll have to order more so I have it in my stash. So sorry to see it go!

                        I love this yarn and am disappointed it is being discontinued. Despite ball band instructions, it is machine washable on a cold, gentle cycle. Bring it back!
