A very nice crisp yarn with very nice colors, although I was disappointed in the lack of a true red. This is a silky yarn to knit with and produces a very classic fabric.

I love the feel of this yarn. It is amazingly soft and smooth. The stitches show very distinctively. I think this may be the yarn I like best for the feel of it. They need to offer more colors though, not a very good choice.

I'll never go back to 100% cotton again. Great price, amazing feel; perfect for baby stuff. I *Love* working with this yarn. As compared to their competitor of cotton/tencel, this is a better buy and no discernable difference that I can see.

Very affordable and soft, but BEWARE if you are making something fitted. I made the Rusted Root sweater from Zephyr Knits out of this and after a few hours of wearing it the ribbing at the waist and ends of sleeves had completely stretched out. It came back after machine washing and drying (cold water, low heat) but I have to wash it each time to get it back into shape. Would probably be better for a scarf. Also, it grows a lot with washing and blocking so wash your swatches.
