    Love this yarn! There are so many colors and it is perfect for our southern California weather and has now become my go to yarn for many projects. It is also perfect if you are making a marls project. Plus, The Yarnery's service is unbelievable!

    This is an excellent light fingering weight yarn. I have used it on many projects. It is especially nice to knit with on hot summer days as it doesn’t stick to your hands. Good for lightweight sweaters, scarves, hats, etc

    I love this yarn and can't say enough good things about the service from the Yarnery. If you are looking for a good light yarn, this is wonderful. You can also double the yarn. Excellent value, too.

    I typically shy away from cotton yarns - this is an exception. Feather light. Great drape. Perfect summer weight. Great layering piece year round.

    I'm loving this yarn this summer. I usually prefer to knit very wooly yarns, Coast feels kind of thin and cottony (because it is half cotton) while you knit with it. However, as soon as it is dunked and blocked, it's light and slightly fuzzy and drapey and lovely. The colors are so good. I've got one project going single strand and one in two hgades held double. The price can't be beat.

    Very nice yarn. I've used it several times and prefer to use it doubled as a DK weight. Good value for the money and a great color selection.

    Holst Garn - Coast

    Posted by CyndiM on 30th Mar 2020

    I don't normally knit with cotton but because this yarn has such gorgeous colors I decided to go for it. This yarn is approximately 50/50 cotton and wool and I really love it. The cotton gives the wool a coolness and a nicer drape then just wool itself. I am knitting two strands of it together and it makes a very nice gauge. Plus by using two strands you blend these colors are much as you like. I am very impressed by this yarn and although I might not be ready to go for a 100% cotton yarn I will definitely continue with this mixture.

    I bought this yarn to check it out for myself after seeing Clara Parkes' review and other reviews. I haven't had a chance to try it yet, but I can say that the colors are lovely and the yarn is very soft even before I knit with it or wash it.
