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.
