This tangerine is a little brighter (not truly a pastel) than I originally thought, but the color is beautiful. I wish that the company would make this in the big ball format. Bernal should consider producing more single color balls that can be used together. The yarn is of a good thickness and is excellent for blankets, and potholders(when doubled)
This is a very reliable cotton yarn, great for making dishcloths and tea towels. The only reason this is not getting 5 stars is because of the colour. I was expecting to receive a brighter orange yarn, but instead received a yarn that is much more of a pink / salmon than tangerine. Still a beautiful colour, but not quite what I thought I was ordering.
Love this - will make dishcloths, tea towels, drying mats - will also co-ordinate this colour with an off white or ecru for variation - have made a couple of dishcloths so far working out great.
I choose this kind of yarn because it washes well and is non allergenic
