It’s spring, the weather is warming up and it’s time to put away those woolly sweaters and switch them out for lighter weight garments! A question we often get this time of the year is which of our cotton yarns work best for certain projects. I’ve put together some information and a list of what we recommend for some of our warm weather cotton and cotton-blend yarns.
First, a brief overview of cotton yarn. Cotton is strong, durable and machine-washable fiber. It’s a great choice to use for people with wool sensitivities and vegans; plus it’s wonderful for next-to-skin wear during warmer months. Cotton can be harder on the hands for some people since it is an inelastic fiber; cotton blends tend to be easier to knit or crochet with. Because of the inelastic nature, it can be harder for cables or color work projects; however textured stitches will show up beautifully.
