This yarn is so easy to work with, and knits up quickly. I made a summer sweater for my daughter, and liked it so much, that I made one for me! It is so comfortable and soft. So far, I've used this yarn 4 times, and have more projects in mind.

I love this yarn - I have made several projects, including a baby hat, booties, and am using one of the variegated colors to make washcloths that come out sooo soft and absorbent. It is wonderful yarn to work with!

Visually aesthetic cotton yarn. Very soft to the feel. Easy to work with. Drawback: pills, sheds and makes a lot of cotton fibre dust while you are working with it. It makes you wonder what the garment will look like after several wearings or uses. The finished fabric will degrade over time.
