We really just cannot get enough of our fantastic Friends Cotton 8/4.

Cotton is a great, strong, durable, breathable, absorbent, and lightweight natural fiber. Friends Cotton 8/4 has no less than all these characteristics and it is made out of 4 threads spun together. 

All the shades have been thoughtfully selected to create a complete range that spans from bright to pastel and darker colors. 

The whole range comes with our “easy start” pull-out tab, making it much handier to find the beginning of your skein. 

This fiber is also easy to take care of, making Friends Cotton 8/4 so versatile that you can craft anything with it. Need some inspiration? We recommend 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. Cotton has a great stitch definition and will work amazingly well with textured stitches.

If that all was not enough already, another great thing about our friends cotton yarns is that they are vegan-dyed.

Aren’t you already in love with Friends Cotton 8/4?

The yarn is OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 certified (no. 2276-367). Find more information about the certification at:

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.

Can I take a minute to tell you how beautifully soft this cotton is? Not only that, but the colours are beautifully vibrant, and it's a little thicker than other cottons of the same ply. I have made several granny square crop tops using this yarn and they look amazing. Not only that - they worked up very quickly because the cotton was such a pleasure to work with. There are so many uses for friends cotton. Was cloths, towels, blankets, scarves, shawls, amigurumi etc, and so many different colours to choose from. What's not to like?


This yarn feels great, so soft and it’s also very easy to work with. The ‘Easy Start’ tab makes it so convenient to work as a centre pull ball, I usually stay away from this method because I get tangled with other yarns but this made it so easy to do. The colours are also stunning!

I’m currently using this to work up a crochet mesh jumper and it works perfectly, no snagging at all — I couldn’t be happier!


Making a little top for my baby Granddaughter with this new cotton yarn. It is not quite as fine as the Hobbii Turkish cotton which is my 'go to' yarn for anything baby, but it is equally as soft. So many colours, I'm spoilt for choice!!! Already purchased 4 colours and I've just placed another order for 14 more - I think I'm hooked.


This is my new favourite yarn to use. So soft and easy to work with. Such a variety of colours too. I used to only use yarn and colours but I find this yarn matches the thickness and look of the yarn and colours (so I can mix and match from both brands) but I find this friends yarn is better to work with. I love it!


I'm a novice crocheter but this is definitely my new favourite cotton yarn. I have made a lovely blanket with this yarn. Excellent draping, nice ability to make appliques with detail and such a lovely range of colours. I made use of the free skein giveaway and topped up my stash. Definitely recommend
