This yarn sets the gold-standard for a great cotton yarn to work with. Unlike other cotton yarns, it is much softer and does not feel stiff or rough at all, making it perfect for recipients with extra-sensitive skin. With a great choice of colours, it is also a very easy-care yarn, and safe for washing in the machine. At a convenient DK weight, it is an endlessly versatile yarn, perfect for everything from baby garments to adult sweaters and accessories.
