It’s another Yarn Review Saturday here and today we’re taking a look at some We Crochet Comfy Worsted Yarn. I’ve been working on some spring designs and exploring some new yarns that are great for spring and summer, and Comfy Worsted is one of the yarns I’ve been checking out. So I thought I’d share with you my experience working with Comfy Worsted yarn with you today.
This yarn was provided to me free of charge in exchange for my honest review.

Check out the video review of We Crochet Comfy Worsted yarn:
Here in Canada, I have always struggled to find a really solid cotton yarn that I love for spring and summer projects. The selection in store is dismal so I’m forced to go online for my shopping. When I came across We Crochet’s Comfy Worsted, I knew I had to give it a try. Taking it out of the box, it was love. This yarn is sooo soft and I waited no time to get some hooks into this yarn. Would Comfy Worsted stitch up the way I hoped? I’ve been duped by soft cottons before so I wasn’t going to let myself fall head over heels with it until I had done some extensive stitching with it.
The colours are gorgeous. I got some Comfy Worsted in Hawk, White, Black and Copper. I am OBSESSED with the Copper and Hawk colourways. I don’t know what it is about the Copper specifically that draws me in but I just love it. The yarn has a matte finish so I really like that for garments and given the availability of colours, I would even take this yarn for a spin in an amigurumi design.
Comfy Worsted has great stitch definition and works up beautifully. At first, I thought this yarn had a bit more drag due to the cotton content but I switched up the hook I was using and there was no more drag so I think it was just that hook and yarn combo. These hooks by Clover just slid through the yarn like butter and drag was no longer an issue. Below you’ll see that I have a swatch with basic stitches done in the Copper Yarn. I have started with single crochet stitches, moved to half doubles and finished off with double crochet stitches. Following that, I’ve completed a swatch in paired double crochet to show it in a lacier stitch.
Splitting was minimal and I have to say, right now, this is my absolute favourite cotton yarn. I loved it so much, I decided to use it for my first garment pattern (coming soon!). To say that I’ve taken this yarn for a test stitch is an understatement as I’ve pretty much completed a 2XL garment sample in it before writing this review. The yarn is wonderfully soft against the skin and I loved working with it. My only complaint about this yarn is that it only comes in 50g balls. That is in no way a deal breaker. I just wish I could get this yarn in larger amounts. Put this yarn in a cone or a large cake and I would be all over it. If you’re looking for a great worsted weight cotton yarn for spring projects I don’t hesitate to recommend giving We Crochet’s Comfy Worsted Weight yarn a try.
