Billow is all about creature comforts: oversized cowls and wraps, lazy weekend pullovers, and cozy blankets that hug you back. Eight plies of super soft pima cotton create a slightly thick and thin texture for a feel that is both rustic and modern all at once. A bulky weight yarn, Billow works up quickly while the luxuriously soft feel makes it the perfect treat for those with sensitive skin. With a contemporary and sophisticated palette that spans 16 stunning colors, Billow’s cloud-like softness is sure to tempt your needles and hooks to cast on your next project right away.

Billow is super soft and the colors are absolutely gorgeous! That said, I have the same problem that other reviewers had with the yarn thickness. It is just barely a bulky weight yarn to begin with, and the thickness is extremely inconsistent. It will be worsted weight for a few inches, then narrow all the way to lace weight! The narrow parts usually only last a few inches but it's enough to make for some very uneven stitches. I'm making a few different cowls with this yarn but there are gaps where the yarn is so skinny. Not sure I would buy this yarn again unless the consistency issues are resolved :(

I haven't started working with it yet but they are soooooo soft (!!!) and the colors are gorgeous down to earth tones and very well saturated. I'm definitely buying more of billow, I just wish they had more colors!

Loved this yarn. The varying thickness kept my plain stitch interesting and the yarn is so soft. The colors are also wonderful!

I love this yarn! It is very soft to touch, and easily worked up. I ordered my Billow yarn for a granny square throw project, and could not be more pleased with the quality of the material, as well as the colours I chose (Sagebrush, Gosling, and Comfrey). Like another reviewer, I also found the areas of the yarn where the diameter was finer, could be difficult to create a uniform look (especially because I am crocheting granny squares). Overall, I have thoroughly enjoyed working with this yarn!! :)

I did not like the yarn. It ranged from extremely thin to somewhat thick. I'm not sure why this is considered in the bulky yarn category. I still made an infinity scarf, but the cotten leaves pills all over my wool coat. Not a fan.

Well, the yarn isnt bulky all the time, one inch is bulky than it turns fingering... the result is not clear at all...

I was convinced this was some of the best yarn ever until I noticed little bits of it all over my clothes and furniture and I kept feeling its tiny fibers getting into my eyes and nose and throat while I was working with it. Halfway thru my full sized blanket I realized it pills like nobody's business. It's so bad that I can't give the blanket as a gift as I had planned because I'd hate for the recipient to have to deal with this. Very, very disappointed.

Wonderful soft yarn! So fun to work with. My only complaint is that the thin portion of the yarn is sometimes the thickness of sewing thread, which always makes me nervous when working a pattern. I think a bit more attention to the diameter of the thin portion of the yarn (e.g., making it a bit thicker so that the thread weight is gone) will make this superb yarn even better in the future. Can't wait for the colors to be restocked, and possibly expanded! :)

In LOVE with Billow yarn. Just knitted a beautiful infinity scarf with it and its so soft and modern. Just wish there were even more colour options in this yarn

The colors are what first drew me in with Billow. They are subtle yet saturated, and look beautiful together in any combination. Knitting and crocheting with cotton yarn has been a love-hate sort of endeavor for me, but Billow turned that to love. It's soft and doesn't leave my hands feeling chafed. I'll definitely buy more.
