“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 been looking for washable yarn for my great grandchildren. I bought one skein of this to test. It is soft and the color was pretty. However, it is very stretchy. It does not hold its shape at all. I will never buy it again.

I purchased this yarn in a different color a few years ago. I loved it. It worked up nicely as a baby blanket, washed well, and still looks wonderful. I recently bought this yarn again for a blanket for another grandbaby. I am so disappointed, and don't even want to finish the project. The yarn is very very thin for a worsted weight yarn, and I've used sport weight yarn that is actually thicker than this is. I've had to rip out and restart the project several times because this thin yarn won't work with the needle size in my pattern. I've downsized the needles two sizes, and changed the pattern. I'm still not happy with it. I am constantly covered with fluff from the yarn every time I pick it up. I will not purchase this product again.

I love this yarn. It is so incredibly soft and with it being cotton and acrylic it is good for use in items for people who might be sensitive to wool. My husband is going through chemo and has lost all of his hair, he loves his caps that I made him. I realized while sitting with him during his infusions that there are so many people going through the same things he is, who have either lost their hair or are sensitive to cold from the chemo. So I started making knitted caps with this yarn and take them to the cancer center for the nurses to hand out to those who want them. It has been nice to be able to use up my stash of this yarn (along with more colors that I buy, :) ), and gratifying to do something for those who are fighting so hard to beat cancer. Thank you Knit Picks for this soft cotton blend yarn!

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.
