My sister in law purchased a ball of cotton like this from a shop in Olney and I ran out so as Olney was quite a way, I looked on the internet for some more. It was a bit of a guess as I had thrown away the label but easily recognised it when once online. The cotton arrived pretty well the next day and I set to work finishing off the crochetting of my stole. I am delighted with the result, one can not see where the two cottons join as they blend in perfectly. The stole has been admired by fans of crochet for miles around. It has a lovely warm and stretchy texture. Well done to Crochetta on a perfect product. I have a Messy Church Balloon Race coming up and will probably use the rest of the cotton that I have left for balloon strings.
