Overall Fantasy Naturale Rating: 3.9 out of 5 stars (3.9 based on 7 reviews)

I like this yarn. 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
Yes, it does cost more than the 100% cotton yarn we've all used to make dishcloths however, if you are looking to make something a bit more elegant, this yarn is great. I've used the variegated blue/green to make placemats with a simple linen stitch. The way the colors distributed was perfect, and the final fabric is substantial and lays flat. The subtle sheen makes the mats look less rustic. I will absolutely use this yarn again for placemats and table runners. I'll continue to use the less expensive, work-horse cotton yarn for dishcloths because at $1.25/skein -on sale- it simply can't be beat.

Feels like it will b e rough but... 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I've used this yarn for several projects and while it is not good for everything it is very good for some things. The yarn is large and sturdy. feeling rough at first, or hard, however once it is washed is softens up beautifully. I've used it to make a very nice shrug as well as hats and, as the reviewer above mentions, bathroom accessories. I would like to note that reviewers should not try to hedge things their way by putting in several negative reviews as someone has done above.
