Hi folksies.

Today something jumped into my basket and came home with me. $20 for 3.5kg of 100% cotton yarn .. I couldnt say 'no'.

Its a bit fluffy and a good tug will easily break a piece off, so it dosnt seem that 'strong'. Im not sure of the yardage, just the weight.

What should I do with it?

And no, im NOT going to make the worlds biggest dish cloth ;)

I too, found these "cones" at a yard sale! I got three of them for $5.00! I have no idea what to do with them, either:?? I have a green one, a blue one with little specks in it and an off white one.
Well, I hope someone lets us know!
I had thought of adding them to regular yarn and knitting them together and making a scarf?

Is it soft? I'd try dying it and using it to knit summer clothes with it
