Overall Skinny Cotton Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars (4.8 based on 11 reviews)

Tiring to work with 3 out of 5 stars (3 out of 5)
Cotton always has a lot of friction but this has a lot more than I'd expect from such a smooth yarn. Also, it isn't very poofy I don't know the technical term, so it ends up looking loose if you don't work tight. I found this yarn tiring to work with.

Good Quality 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
This cotton is easy to knit with and does not split like some cottos do. Nice color, shows pattern well.

I've worked with this yarn before. It is a very sturdy yet soft workhorse cotton. I think garments in this would wear very well, though I've only knit baby items with it.
