Village Yarn Craft Cotton
The yarn is soft enough, a standard non-mercerized cotton yarn or “kitchen cotton” and comes is an acceptable variety of solid colours, including reds, greens and a variety of oranges, making it one of the better colour palettes available (PNC being the main front runner). The main problem however, is that because it is so much thinner and rounder than BHC, PNC, and LSC, it can’t really be used in the same piece with the others without looking somewhat different in texture and possibly distorting the pattern. The thinness and “cord-like” characteristic is my only real grievance with this yarn because it is well priced at $1.69 US ($1.86 CN), can be easily purchased online with reasonable shipping and comes in a good variety of colours, but unfortunately, for me, the cons outweigh the pros and the balls I bought just sit in the bins without seeing any action. I do anticipate busting them out one day for a small piece like a keychain or cellphone strap, but I don’t anticipate buying this yarn again.
