I have just started to make the Summberbelle dress by Michelle L Brennan. I almost gave up finding the light peach color until I found it on Deramores. The Sirdar cotton DK looks like it is very fine quality. If possible, I will respond again as soon as my project is finished.
So far, best quality mercerized cotton I have ever used.
I continue to use this for my mandalas and baby blankets. Sirdar Cotton has the best stitch definition and a softness that other cottons do not have.
it just arrived this afternoon really can't judge quite yet...looks nice though.
