Cotton Kings

Sultan Shadow

4 ply100% Cotton

Select Color:

The dark normally teaches us to appreciate the light – not to mention clear and strong colors. Give a little room in the dark to see these great bright colors of Sultan Shadow unfold.

All the variations in the Shadow series have a foundation in deep black, which the colors then slowly grow from. The dark bottom gives the clear colors extra power and makes them seemingly shine and catch the eye.

Cotton Kings Sultan Shadow is a lovely soft cake yarn in 100% cotton, which is loved and admired for its beautiful color changes. The quality results from 4 thin threads that are not twined together, which makes it extra soft and airy.

The colors in Sultan Shadow change slowly, by only 1 thread at a time, which makes for a fantastically beautiful transition of colors. It makes it extra exciting to knit and crochet with because one gets to see how the colors meet when your creative project unfolds. It takes about 1 skein to make a shawl/scarf.

Tip: before using the Sultan Shadow skein, run the 4 threads through a bead so the threads are gathered throughout the work.

The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (no. 2076-311). Find more information about the certification on the https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/.

I bought Sultan Shadow for my partner and daughter, and made them both a shawl out of it. They both loved it, and I loved working with it! I was surprised at first as it's 4 separate strands, much like embroidery floss. I was only used to working with acrylic yarn before this, so it took a bit of getting used to, as it was thinner, too. However, I got the hand of it quite quickly and soon really enjoyed working with it! The yarn comes out of the cake very easily, didn't have to worry about anything knotting up or getting tangled, and it flowed through my hands and hook nice and smooth as well. With acrylic yarn I usually struggle a little as the yarn often squeaks, even though my tension isn't tight. This yarn however is amazing. It's super soft and light. I will definitely be buying more of this, and am already looking at other Cotton King yarns, as I'm sure they're just as amazing as this one!

Just finished the classical attitude shawl from 1 cake of the pink/Black.

At first it was difficult getting used to a yarn that was so thin but also seperated as such. But as I got on with it it became easier to use.

Only downside was mine kept knotting in the middle but, after a while, it became easier to use.

Will certainly be buying again

Received this in a lucky bag and have already started using it. Its stunning and I'm not that much of a green colour lover but its gorgeous. The cotton is so soft. Already had to buy more lucky bags. It's the best cotton yarn I have ever used.


Dawn

Absolutely loved working with this wonderful cotton yarn. I followed the helpful tip about using a bead to keep the strands together. The shawl I made is lovely and soft and I love the way the colour gradually changes from green to black


Anna

This yarn is lovely to work with. I bought this yarn with intention of making a shawl but instead I made a cardigan.My cardi came out light, soft and comfy.
Yarn totally recommended.
