Three words that best describe the Balinese cotton yarn: Smooth, Soft and Lustrous. This yarn is smooth like bamboo yarn, however, it is not fluffy. It drapes and lays flat. Soft to the touch, it does not dry your hands. When crocheted, it is stiff and strong. Ideal for use on bags, doilies, garments, baby stuff, dishcloths or just about anything you want to use it for!
