Easy to work with on the cone, beautiful colour and a great texture. It’s knitting up fabulously and it was a bargain compared to other cotton yarn.
love to mix it with soft ecru
I purchased 3 of these cones with the spindle and found that it's much less annoying to unravel than a skein would be--you don't have to deal with any snags at all. One cone had no knots or flaws; one had a knot; one had 2 knots and a length of over-twisted yarn, like string. The yarn is normally loosely twisted and therefore splits easily, but is soft enough to wear next to skin in a sweater. I did make sweaters and found that they take a long time to dry compared to wool or acrylic. Drying completely in the dryer is not a good idea though, because this yarn is not pre-shrunk. Drying for half an hour in the dryer and then laying flat with a fan on it might avoid shrinkage. When I dried one sweater completely in the dryer I lost about 4" in length.
Nice yarn. A bit darker than I thought it was going to be
Love this yarn - love the colour and the quality. However, I have come across several knotted joins which is extremely annoying!
