I used this yarn to make a backpack and some small amigirumi. I feel like it's durable and won't lose it's shape over time. It's perfect for making amigirumi that will be roughed around a bit. The colours are really vivid too. My only complaint about this yarn is that it frequently has tied ends throughout the skein, usually one or two.
Hempster yarn is good for making mochila bags. It is a little thicker (at a 3) than should be for these bags but works great just the same.
Great yarn, but a little stiffer Jan anticipated. Had to repurpose the yarn I bought.
Good strong sturdy yarn to knit with. Thinner than other cotton yarns, so I double stranded it and it was the right bulk
