Cotton Rope Add to My Favorites
A perfect spring/summer yarn, Rowan's "Cotton Rope" is aptly named because its gently twisted strands look like the most delicate, softest rope you'll ever see! Finely crafted of 55% cotton & 45% acrylic, "Cotton Rope" is available in a palette of bright, trendy, "fruity" colors. It's bulky enough to knit up quickly yet lightweight enough for all those spring/summer outings. Choose "Cotton Rope" for your next top, scarf, vest, hat, belt, shawl, poncho or sweater project.

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.
