Why we're crazy about cotton yarn
Soft, breathable and so versatile for knitters! Cotton is one of the oldest known fibers and remains a staple in the knitting industry today. Mass production began in the 1700 with the invention of the cotton gin. This fiber is so popular because of it's soft and versatile; it accepts dyes beautifully providing bright, rich shades. It's breathable so it's perfect to wear three seasons out of the year. And most of all, it's extremely absorbant, providing comfortable knits that wick moisture from the body. In other words - cotton keeps you cool!
Where to buy cotton yarn?
Cotton yarns are regularly available here at NobleKnits. They are a staple of our inventory since many of our knitters who live milder climates enjoy knitting with cotton year round. Check out organic cotton from Appalachian Baby, soft quick-knit cotton from Loopy Mango, crisp Cotton Tape from Dandoh, and lovely self-striping Ty-Dy Cotton from Knit One Crochet Too. Cotton is also a fabulous alternative for those with wool allergies. Since much of the cotton we stock is easy care, it's also a good choice for babies and childrens garments. We also have quite a few cotton yarns on sale.
