“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 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.

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.

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!
