My kingdom for...
My kingdom for a bulky weight 100% cotton yarn! This worsted weight just isn't cutting it.

Looking for a certain colour.
I have this huge spool I think about 150 grms of a royal/navy blue, 100% bulky weight cotton.
I can't find anything to do with it.
It came as part of a sweater kit for a childs cotton pullover (but the blue was darker then the the picture, online order).
If interested pm me, I can send a pic.
Will trade for something else

I Went hunting for it and found 2 more balls of baby cotton.
I have a ball of white (about 60gm) and a ball of mint (100gm)

Here's a link to the kind of cotton it is.

Me, too!! I want it for a summer sweater. (Notice my post on yarn sub advice.) Let me know if you find anything good, and I'll do the same. :D Btw, I'm checking out the garage sale yarns on yarn.com, and I think they might have some possibilities.

I think that yarn is even thinner then the stuff I am using.
