Looking for a cotton yarn with a bit of oomph? Friends Cotton 8/4 Mercerized is the answer.

This product has all the features that make cotton great and more. Mercerization is a treatment used to give cotton a luxurious sheen. It makes the threads stronger, reduces the lint from the fiber, and makes it absorb dyes better. The result will be a cotton yarn with brighter colors, that holds its shape and colors better over time and that has a shiny look to it. 

Friends Cotton 8/4 Mercerized is a super fine yarn made out of 4 threads spun together. The whole range comes with our “easy start” pull-out tab, making it much handier to find the beginning of your skein. 

Need some inspiration? Friends Cotton 8/4 Mercerized will look great in lace projects.  We recommend doilies, dishcloths, pot holders, totes, and rugs for your house. It will be suitable for any kind of garment for babies, children, and adults. And let’s not forget stuffed toys, amigurumi, and cute animals.

Time to give a vibrant touch to your projects with our Friends Cotton 8/4 Mercerized.

NOTE: Please note that a printing error has occurred on the label, the correct length of the yarn is 160 m (174 yds). 

The yarn is OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 certified (no. 2276-367). Find more information about the certification at: https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/

About the Friends family

The colors of the yarns included in the Friends family are literally friends!

This means the color numbers correspond to the same color across the different Friends yarns. If you order the same color number from two different Friends yarns, they will match. Please note that there can be slight differences in the shades from fiber to fiber.

Have fun combining and matching them in all your projects.

I bought this in the colour ‘pistachio’ to make my brother a pair of shrek ears that I’m going to attach to his over the ear headphones. The colour on the photo is spot on, I was worried it might not be true to colour - but it definitely is! Very easy to crochet with and doesn’t unravel :) I’m very happy with it


I used the Friends Mercerized Cotton 8/4 in Cognac (17) for the Hobbii pattern Lavender Fields Skirt which worked up lovely and the yarn has a nice sheen to it without slipping on the hook.


Such rich cotton colours to work with. Found it really easy to knit with & has a really nice finish.


This is my new go-to yarn. It works up so well. Isn’t stiff like the normal cotton.


I bought several colours to add to my stash. Vibrant and has a lovely sheen.
