I haven't used Sugar n' Cream for anything other than dishclothes, but there are some nice mercerized 100% cottons out there. I've used Elann's Endless Summer Lara cotton, Jo Sharp Soho Summer, and others I've liked. And Blue Sky Cotton is sooo soft, but more $$, of course. So there are higher end cottons you might like more if you're making garments. Cotton/Acrylic blends are good too, and they generally don't stretch out like 100% cottons often do and are more forgiving.
