Ordered 10 balls of the Catona cotton
Arrived in less than 2 days. Very happy with this cotton. The colour is lovely.
Easy to crochet and is light and quite soft. It does say it is mercerised but there is not much of a sheen at all.
The service was fantastic.
This yarn is great. It feels nice to work with and is going be part of a placemat and coaster set for my dining room table. Being cotton means it will be safe to wash in the machine in case of spillage. As usual dealing with Nikki was an absolute pleasure.
