“Our review panel was in complete agreement: Comfy lives up to its name. Stacey and Siobhan noted that, unlike many 100% cotton yarns, Comfy didn’t hurt their hands while the worked with it. Stacey also pointed out that it doesn’t squeak on the needles, and it feels like a “cotton ball.” Knitters Review, May 2008

"I'd never much cared for cotton yarns until I tried Comfy. It's springy, has wonderful drape but doesn't sag, it's soft, lightweight and blocks amazingly - it's everything I love about wool, but in cotton! It's now one my favorites and has changed my mind about designing with cotton yarn."
-Kerin D., Knit Picks Garment Designer

“Comfy is Knit Picks’ newest. It is worsted weight but knits up light and thin. It is 75% Pima cotton and 25% acrylic. For the second time in recent memory I have fallen in love with a synthetic (blend)… This yarn is soft and caressing, and very summery. Perfect for a tank.” Obsessed with Knitting, May 2008.

i have just completed the Rosebud baby blanket in Creme Brûlée. The color is perfect for the nursery fabric my niece chose - not the typical baby colors but corals, lt gold, soft robin's egg blue, lt pea green. This color is a good compliment and so very soft. It did shed lint on my clothes so am concerned about linting and how it will wash and maybe put lint on other things washed with it...

I love cotton and cotton-blend yarns, and this one is fabulous to knit with! As many have said, it's great for baby blankets. It makes me really sad, though, that it's only 109 yards. That's a heck of a lot of ends to bury. Can you package this in 100g skeins???? That's my only complaint. Otherwise, love it!!

I cannot say enough good things about this yarn. The name, Comfy, is a big understatment. More like heaven!! Sooo soft, nice quality. I got the color Rosehip, which is a little more dull than in the photo, but overall, a great yarn!

This is my go-to yarn for baby blankets. The result is soft, comfy, and suitable for all seasons. In my last order, however, EACH of the purples - Lady Slipper, Vinca, Lilac and Blackberry - had knots. One skein had two knots! Very annoying. Blanket still turned out great, had a few more ends to weave in.

This is superb yarn for making chemo caps for children. The colors are bright, do not fade, and are easily mixed for more colorful and appealing caps. The texture is soft, not irritating, and feels good. Stitch definition is excellent and makes the knitting fun to learn new stitches, and a self-graphed design, or anything to give a cap some personality. (And the price is right!)

I really liked working with this yarn. Drape and stitch definition were good. But both colors I chose were definitely different than what they appear. White is definitely not white - it is cream or ivory. Sea foam is much darker and dustier than it looks online. Now I'm afraid to try other colors.

I just started a sweater using this yarn in the Ivory color. It's sooooo soft! The sweater has a fairly complex pattern, with a cable up the front, and the stitch definition I am getting with this yarn is quite good. I LOVE the feel of this yarn, and with the bit of acrylic in it helps the stitches to retain their shape. It's a joy to work with, I don't want to put it down it feels so good to the touch. lol I will say that the color shown on the website for the Ivory was a good bit lighter than the actual yarn was when I received it. The yarn is more of a light tan in color, but not unpleasant looking. Just lighter than I had expected, and not quite as light as I would have liked. I can't wait to start more projects using this yarn. :)

I cannot say anything good about this yarn. It pilled and split as I was working it and by the time I had finished the sweater, looked as if it had been owned for years. I made this as a gift but am going to start over again with different yarn.

Wondered why the yardage is nowhere included in the description...

This is my favorite yarn. Soft and comfortable against my skin and has great drape thanks to the fluffiness of the acrylic. I would love to see some heathers please!

This is my go-to yarn for amigurumi. I love it. KnitPicks, PLEASE introduce a brighter yellow to the colour choices. I make tons of children's items from this yarn and the only bright colour missing from your selection is yellow! Creme brulee just isn't cutting it.

Love this yarn. Wish you had it in dark and light denim colors. I do a lot of knitting for boys and have a hard time finding yarn for them.

I love this yarn. Please add more colors, especially to the fingering weight!

I really wanted to love this yarn, but alas... It sheds like crazy. I knitted a terrific top (the Turnstone Pullover), but don't dare wear it with anything dark - I get covered with fibers, even after several washings. Sorry!

I absolutely love this yarn! I've used it for almost every project I've done in the past year. It's super soft, has great stitch definition, and creates really wonderful, and professional looking products. My only complaint is that the balls are so small I end up with tons of loose ends to weave in from all the changes.

The yarn was lovely to work with and the colors are gorgeous, but I was very disappointed after washing the baby blanket I made. I washed it on the delicate cycle and tumbled dry low and the piece came out covered with lint from the various colors I used. The item now looks used and unsuitable to gift.

Bought this in crème brulee and black to knit the Buzzy Bee Baby Blanket pattern for a co-worker. It has wonderful stitch definition and is so soft and luxurious! Cannot wait to finish it and present it as a gift.

This is a beautiful yarn, but calling it worsted weight is kind of a stretch. It seems lot more like dk/sport. I read the reviews and thought it would be perfect for a pattern I had in mind, but it's just a bit too thin. I will have to find a use for it though, because it really is a nice yarn.

I have used Comfy for baby items. Its a very nice soft yarn, and the color choice is great. However, I have landed on Shine as my absolute fav cotton blend yarn. The texture and stitch definition is so wonderful and I just love working with it. My gifts in shine get rave reviews.

This is my all-time favorite yarn. It is wonderful to work with and the finished project is gorgeous! I will definitely be buying more.

I LOVE this yarn! I got it for making fingerless mittens, and the sheen and drape would make a wonderful, beautiful sweater. I have really enjoyed working with it and I look forward to seeing how it wears and washes, though with what I've seen it's probably going to be amazing. Keep in mind, though - it's cotton, so it has absolutely NO stretch.

As part of a group called The Community Baby Blanket Project, we have made 6 baby blankets with Comfy Worsted. We love it. More than 25 knitters and crocheters are currently working on an additional 8 blankets. The yarn is so soft and the colors are incredibly versatile.

This is the BEST yarn. It is the softest thing I've ever worked with and it lays so nicely. I made a beautiful baby blanket for my new niece and I cannot wait to snuggle her in it! Thanks for having such a great yarn at such an affordable price!

Terrific yarn! I used it for a baby blanket a year ago and just saw it again tonight. After 8 months heavy use, the colors are still vibrant and it is as soft as can be. It looks like new. The parents say they get lots of compliments. Thank you Knit Picks for incredible yarns.

This is the perfect yarn for children's things, washes well and soft! Beautiful colors and the value for the price is like no where else. Love this stuff. This is what I will use over and over.

I love Comfy and have knitted 4 sweaters in it now (fingering, sport and worsted) It's my go to cotton/summer/baby yarn. The colors are magnificent, it's super soft and it washes like a dream. Do beware though that it "grows" I highly recommend if making a garment to WASH AND DRY your gauge swatch so you know what to expect. It will shrink back up a little in the dryer, but not much.

We just made a charity blanket as a group project using Comfy. Both knitters and crocheters loved working with it. I blocked and washed the blanket and the colors held beautifully. The blanket is super-soft!
