This is a favorite cottton for afghans, strong bags, baby garments, wash cloths and more! Heavy and strong, it is a true worsted weight yarn that works great at 4-4.5 stitches per inch. Completely machine wash and dry, this cotton will take all the abuse you can dish out. Our "Sturdy String Bag" pattern takes 2 skeins!

I love this yarn! I have made several summer tops with it and I have to say it is the best cotton for holding its shape and color through multiple washings. The yarn from this purchase was used to make a kitchen towel that is a constant repeat for me. I absolutely need one in my kitchen and since family and friends have seen it, I get requests for them all the time. I would use this yarn for any cotton project I have in mind.

This yarn is easy to work with, beautiful to see and touch. I ordered it for washcloths, but am making a summer dropped-stitch scarf with one skein because it's so pretty.

Just love the afghan I'm making using Fantasy in the blue/green/chartreuse mix in a wave pattern. It works up beautifully.
