This mercerized, long staple cotton from Cascade Yarns is soft and has a lovely sheen. Mercerized cotton is strong, which means the fabric will wear well, even if it is worn "hard". Each skein has 220 yards and knits at 22-24 sts. per inch on a US #5- or #6, and crochets at 16-13 scs per inch on a G up to a J hook.
Made in India, this yarn can be machine washed in cold water and tumbled dry on low.
We knit the Lil' Rosebud with this yarn and used 2 skeins knitting an 18 months size. To get gauge, we used a 16" and 24" in size US #4.
Colorways from left to right: garden green, celadon, baby blue, orchid cloud, veiled rose, toasted almond, white sand. Our sample was knit in orchid cloud.
If you would like the skeins wound, please let us know in the optional gift message box on your cart page.
