I made dishcloths with Cotton Supreme Batik and after heavy, HEAVY use for the last 6 months or so, this yarn has not faded one bit! Amazing! Still has the same bright color it had when brand new and very soft. Highly recommend this yarn.
Cotton Supreme Batik is VERY soft, and nice to knit with. I like the patterning of the colors, and it seems as though it will hold its shape nicely. It has not “grown” like many other projects with different 100% cotton yarns.
I just used Deluxe Worsted for the first time in a very deep purple (Heliotrope) color and was totally surprised that it did NOT bleed into the lighter color also used in the same project. I was pleased with the yarn and it is very soft.
