Cotton yarn tips?

Am I the only one who hates Lily's Sugar N' Cream yarn? To be fair, this is the first cotton yarn I've tried but it is not my friend! I order some Dishie from Knit Picks to try out; the reviews seemed great. Right now, I am purging myself of SNC, one washcloth at a time.
Is it me? Anyone have any tips on this stiff, shreddy stuff?

I usually use the loom for that yarn. Or just do a half dc

What kind of loom? I think the Knifty Knitter would be okay with the rounded tips but I have a few that have a sharpish crochet hook like tips that I imagine would be a nightmare. I think they are Boye?
Half double might work. It seems like any stitch with this stuff takes three times as long.

I use the straight plastic loom with a rounded top and skip a peg or 2 if needed

I have a bunch of these which I may throw in the trash because of their snaggy tendencies..

It isn't my favorite either. I do like the Dishie more...it is much softer!
