The cotton smells GREAT! <3 The cotton smells and feels great. It is wrapped up nicely, shipping was FAST. The cotton arrived MUCH earlier than I had expected. Shipping must be great to where I live. This cotton was as expected, and the only unexpected thing was it was cut in two rolls. As I needed it for a consistent wrapping and expected one long roll. It was none the less able to do as needed, and did not effect my project. I am very pleased with my purchase. I look forward to future purchases.
