Lovely hand and drape

There's a good reason this stuff has been on the market as long as it has -- see title above! I picked this up to do some baby projects and it has worked beautifully. Safran has a lovely gloss to it for a cotton. Just a joy to work with :) It is, however, quite sensitive to changes in tension, so be forewarned. Furthermore, be aware that in a lot of ways it's almost like working with embroidery floss: the yarn is actually 7 tight cotton threads plied together, so make sure to pick up all plies when working with tiny needles. Sharp points are a definite plus.
