So-so yarn for the money. There wasn't as much spring to it as I expected, given the acrylic content. Very splitty. At this gauge, I MUCH prefer GGH Goa.

This is very splitty...I had to keep frogging so there wouldn't be little threads sticking out everywhere. I made a hat out of a rowan pattern book...the look is pretty and the yarn has held up..the only complaint is the splitting.

Really disappointed by Cotton Rope. It seemed to untwist far to easily. I never got past a swatch when I moved on to another project.

I had only a good experience with Cotton Rope. I am in the process of knitting a mat for my kitchen and the yarn is knitting up nicely. It is not splitting or untwisting at all. I like it.

I LOVE this yarn. I put loose ends into a knot until I'm ready to weave them into the body of the yarn. This keeps the "splitting" factor entirely in control. The construction of the yarn is NOT a problem, in my opinion. In fact, the yarn construction is one of the features that makes this yarn so SOFT. To find a cotton yarn that's this lightweight & soft is semi-miraculous, in my book. And the color saturation elevates the yarn to an even higher level. GORGEOUS yarn. One of my summertime faves!

This "rope" is more like three strands begging to be braided or used separately. It just does not want to stay twisted. One good thing; the strands splay out on your working loop, but mostly retwist when you work the next row on top of it. It's bearable for a solid color piece but avoid for intarsia!
