    Unfortunately I am unable to purchase this yarn from the UK, and postage is very expensive from the USA, otherwise I would be purchasing it again.

    A bit rough

    I was expecting a bit softer yarn . I hope that after washing it becomes less scratchy. Colors are beautiful and very accurate.

    I ordered this to make a baby romper for my grandson who lives in Barcelona. I wanted a lighter yarn, but not an acrylic. I love all the color choices in this yarn and my daughter made a baby sweater with it that has washed beautifully. I thought it would be a good choice, but the thing is.......it has cotton and I just don't like to knit with cotton and this had to be held double to make gauge. I guess I was hoping that the 50/50 mix of cotton and wool would make it act more like wool and it doesn't.

    I really love this yarn. It softens as you knit, so I'm looking forward to the final effects of blocking.

    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.

    Posted by Gale on 23rd Jun 2020

    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.
