A cotton yarn that will still give you some stretch, this blend is great for kids garments and for those who haven't worked with cotton before. We recommend it for knitting more than crochet because of the way the stitches lay so beautifully when knit. With a good range of tones to choose from, cotton light is one of the best yarns for the Spring and Summer seasons.

This is the 3rd time I’ve ordered this yarn. I love the combination of the cotton and poly! It gives my projects a very nice drape. A sharp needle is a must to avoid splitting. Great value, too!

Making Drops #160-1 using a size US4 needle to get guage as I am a "loose" woman! The yarn can split but really sharp needles keep it inline. I am using a leather thimble so as not to puncture my finger. I bought 13 skeins and hope it is enough. I am making the smallest for my soon to be 1 year old great granddaughter who doesn't like "itchy".
