“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 bought comfy worsted to make a small year round blanket to throw over myself in the evening while watching tv. This yarn was perfect! It is lightweight, very soft and "comfy". I am a self proclaimed "yarn snob" and I find no fault with this yarn. I even pack it in my suitcase and travel with it. When I come home, it goes in the washer and dryer and with each wash I think it comes out softer. I've been using this blanket for over 3 years now. It's one of my go to Yarns for baby gifts.

This is the worst shedding and pilling yarn I have ever used. I made a baby blanket with it, and my lap would be covered in yarn fluff after just a few minutes of knitting. I washed the blanket when I was done, and now it looks like it's 20 years old. There is pilling everywhere and the stitches now look flat and worn down. I am embarrassed to give the blanket away. I will not be ordering this yarn again.

I was nervous to try this yarn for my charity knitting projects due to reports about shedding and pilling. I knitted a swatch and a hat, and didn't have a problem with either. I even put my swatch through a gentle machine wash and dry, and it came through fine. No pilling and no shrinking!!! I was pleased. The yarn is soft and has a nice sheen to it. I will agree with another reviewer that the color that I see on my computer screen does not match the actual color of the yarn. In this case, I ordered Lady Slipper, which, on the screen, is more lavender than pink. In reality, the color is way more pink that purple and does not match the picture online AT ALL. The yarn itself is fine, but just be aware that it's hard to match colors online. NOTE FROM KNIT PICKS: Unfortunately, we cannot control how monitors display color. We do have written descriptions of each color. If you click on the image of the color, a little window will open with a larger picture and the written description of the color. We try very hard to make sure the written descriptions are accurate.

A common complaint which I have written to this company many times about. The colors I receive are so different from what they have displayed on the website. This time I ordered the semolina yellow and even went on Ravelry to look at projects that used it to get a sense of the true color. The color I received is a mustard brown. This is the 4th time I have ordered a color only to be disappointed.

This is my go-to yarn for all things BABY. The yarn is soft and buttery smooth. The colors are divine (be sure to click on the thumbnails and read the written descriptions, as not all monitors show the colors correctly). I have been very pleased with everything I have ever made using this yarn. My grandson has a blanket that I made him as a baby. He is 7 years old now and the blanket still looks great.
