Cotton!

April 11, 2013

Summer is the perfect time to knit with cotton.  It creates light garments with great stitch definition, which is perfect for showing off your fancy needlework.  Here’s some of our favorite cotton yarns to work with:

Tahki Cotton Classic is… classic cotton!  100% Mercerized Cotton, at that, meaning it’s been treated to be strong, lustrous, and easy to dye.  It comes in a wide range of hues, making it perfect for bright, colorful projects!

Ella Rae’s Phoenix is 100% Egyptian Mercerized Cotton – soft and luxurious!

Cascade Yarn’s Ultra Pima is 100% Pima Cotton – essentially the same as Egyptian cotton, but from Peru!

We haven’t even mentioned cotton-blends, like Cascade Yarn’s Pima Silk!  Being 85% cotton and 15% silk, it has an amazing feel and is a lot of fun to knit with.  We carry many, many different cotton-blends in our store – there really is something for everyone!
