If this is the yarn then it's fingering weight. This is a great site to bookmark.http://www.yarndex.com/yarn.cfm?yarn_id=3237

Cotton is not stretchy to knit with, but it can sag quite a bit in a garment. That's probably not true of all cottons though so.. :shrug:
I've used the Lana Grossa cotton blends before with good results! It knits up beautifully, sags a bit more during wear than all wool; I knit it up a little tighter than an all-wool sock to overcome this tendency.
